FLPA 191/291 Spring 2021 Website Workshop
In place of the Spring, 2021 Audition Workshop and Portfolio Review; Professor Mendelowitz is creating an outline for you to create your own Entertainment-Oriented portfolio/resume website.
Currently there are 3 pages for you to work through; while a 4th one is coming.
All students in this course must create a(t least a basic) website by Saturday, February 6th.
All of the web-based tools outlines here have a free tier; and though I recommend and use Wordpress for this workshop; I will accept your website built on any platform you choose - html; GoDaddy, Wix, etc. 39% of the world's websites run on Wordpress which is a free, open-source project - so it's very powerful, well supported, well documented, and extremely flexible.
Here's an outline of how this will proceed:
- What you'll need to create your website / prep. Website Workshop
About 15 minutes to go through, but it may take you some time to collect all of the materials (or you may have them ready).
- Getting started with Wordpress (how to sign up for, and begin your website): Website Creation
About 20 minutes to go through. Including signing up for your website, and watching an overview video supplied by Wordpress.
- Terms and considerations, including an overview of Professor Mendelowitz's portfolio
website. Wordpress Concepts
A few terms followed by a 10 minute video overview of Professor M's website; you may want to download and refer back to the video. I recommend watching this, then thinking about how you want to approach building your website.
Time to work on your website!
Now that you've found/collected the pieces you'll need - and created the shell for your website; I'll walk you through a bit of actually modifying your website to suit an Entertainment professional.
