Homepage

Bunkhouse.de — the website of independent German filmmaker Philipp Majer and his film production company Bunkhouse — uses GT Cinetype by Grilli Type, a typeface based on a design that was engineered for a cinema subtitling machine.

The website was conceptualized by Zymryte Hoxhaj and Manuel Wesely, designed by Manuel and developed by Bernd Schmitt.

Philipp’s work is divided into two sections: an area for full-length documentaries (with their own pages) and a grid view for his daily client work. Yellow subtitles help navigating (“Go Home”, “Play movie!”) and provide additional information, such as project titles. In the future, we plan to expand these subtitles to dynamic comment on the visitor’s behavior: Is she scrolling? Is he moving his cursor to certain things? Is she clicking, waving, searching, playing, reading?

As soon as the subtitle idea came up, it was clear which font to choose.

Once more the homepage, but with different video timestamps.

On the website, each documentary film has its own page with custom background colours (or gradients) and film credit information. Visitors can explore back and forth through the documentaries by clicking previous and upcoming titles in the black band above the documentary.

The yellow subtitle will display player states, project titles or Bunkhouse messages.

Bunkhouse’s other catalogue of work is organized in a TV-news ticker style through three filters: editing, music and industry.
