This was my first full-time solo hired web development project. The website provides Efren’s version of a 1980s murder for which he was incarcarete at the age of 15, a crime he claims he did not commit. This project was a collaboration with artists at the Art Institute of Chicago. 

To tell Efren’s story, I created an online repository for the documentary films. After a brief introduction, the user scrolls through aseries of thumbnails of films; they select a video, and upon play it opens to a near-fullscreen theatrical presentation. They can also view an index of all available films, learn more about the project and access resources to educate themselves more about the context of the case.
