Below you will see frequently asked questions and their answers. More may be added as time goes on:
Why did you create this website?
I created this website to be able to display more information about websites and demo reels. I find it makes it easier for some to read the information here than sending it all in a long email.
Why did you choose the name 8th Avenue Web?
I chose the name 8th Avenue Web because New York City is one of my favorite places in the world and when I visit I usually stay on or around 8th Avenue, it just seemed to fit nicely.
How long have you been working on websites?
I began working on websites in 2008.
Can I just send you my child’s photos in an email, tell you their name, and you set up a website?
A website is something that needs to be talked about so that you know a little more about me, I know more about your child’s career so far, and pricing needs to be discussed.
Why are there fees for a website?
There are fees for a website because unfortunately everything needed isn’t free. Domains cost money, designs, and the host. As well a lot of work and time is put in to maintaining the site.
There’s someone I’d like to see a website for, can you make it?
If you know the actor or their family if younger and they are interested in a website please have them contact me. If you are a fan looking for someone to make a site for an actor or actress, I am unable to do so at this time as there are prices associated with the website.
Can you teach me how to make a website?
Unfortunately I do not have the time to do so at this time, it takes a lot of time and practice to learn, however there are some good tutorials online.
What program do you use to make the reels?
I use Sony Vegas Movie Studio to put the reels together.
Are you able to grab clips of my work or my child’s work from a DVD for their reel?
Yes, if you need clips from a DVD for the reel, I am able to do so. (please no blu-ray discs)
How long does a reel take to do?
Each reel takes a different amount of time depending on how many projects are included and what type of project they are.
What if I have a deadline?
Please let me know of your deadline upfront and I will let you know if it’s possible, most often it is.
