19 Jan Pitch for our microsite
Mimbre is a female-led acrobatic theatre company. We make contemporary circus shows that fuse narrative with breathtaking movement.
We are currently working on our new production: The Exploded Circus, an all-female contemporary circus production that uses the scene of a devastated circus and its performers as an allegory to explore themes around change, belonging and hope.
We are looking to work with an individual or a team on creating a microsite that will be used as an extension of the show’s universe. It will allow us to promote the show and give users a more deep engagement with our company, what we do, and the creative process. It will therefore host our marketing and promotional material ie show & rehearsal images, behind the scenes footage, video promos etc.. It will also contain our tour schedule, additional information about the show and cast, and quotes and reviews. Ideally, we would also like for the microsite to have (a small) interactive feature, where users can respond to our creative process and engage further with The Exploded world.
Visually, the mircosite should act as an extension of the show’s world.
The microsite needs to be managed by our team (we use wordpress for our main website but can manage other similar platforms). We should be able to upload content to the site regularly and easily without the designer’s help/input. We should be able to track and monitor traffic to the website, as well as, views/hits on specific pages and material. The mircosite will need to be compatible with desktops, tablets and phone displays.
FEE & HOW TO APPLY
The total budget for this project is £2,000 to include your fees, as well as, site hosting, maintaining & troubleshooting the site for the first three months. We are not VAT registered, so any costs should include VAT.
We have already bought a domain name.
