Fixation Database

I was tasked by Prof. Jeffrey Moser to build a new front end site for his database of film “fixations,” rectangular grids of every frame in a given movie. They’re good for seeing trends of color and light in different films and genres, and he had created over 2,000 of them in a library database that was unpleasant to browse. He wanted the site to be as plain as possible with the fixations front and center, so I made the navigation minimal and focused on the timeline page.

I made the backend in WordPress with the homepage, about page, menu, and site title being fully editable. Each fixation is entered as an individual post, making it easier to sort and filter them in the timeline, and I wrote a PHP script to automatically pull them from the library database.
