SHRIEK WEBSITE COMPLETE AND LIVE
Here's the press release about the new Shriek site. This is our first stab at a site with audio and video elements, so I imagine there will be a version 2.0 in September, with different and more varied format, but I'm very happy with it as it exists, too!!
SHRIEK NOVEL WEBSITE
For Immediate Release
The website for Jeff VanderMeer's critically acclaimed Shriek: An Afterword (coming August 8 from Tor Books) is now live at: http://www.shriekthenovel.com.
Created by City of Saints & Madmen designer Garry Nurrish, it features news, video, audio, text, and press kit sections in a seamless format.
Video options include readings, the unique "The Exchange" book-movie and an online version of VanderMeer's "Rough Guide to Ambergris" multimedia presentation, which has been featured at the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis and the Brisbane Writers Festival, among many others.
Audio includes readings from the novel, a selection of the voice track from the forthcoming Shriek movie, and samples from the original soundtrack by The Church. The text section includes excerpts, deleted scenes, and the Shriek movie script.
In September, after the August premiere of the Shriek short movie in 20 cities around the U.S., the Shriek movie will reside on the site. More options for the existing video on the site will be added at that time.
Due to the graphical nature of the site it has been designed to be best viewed on a screen resolution of 1280x1024 or above. Lower screen resolutions should display the site perfectly well and all content will be accessible, but for optimal viewing pleasure 1280x1024 is recommended.
