iTheatre Renews Contract with SH Interactive

SH Interactive and iTheatre Collaborative creative director Christopher Haines renewed their relationship for the 2011-12 season. Scott met with iTheatre creative staff recently to discuss the future of the website.

Both parties agreed that it would benefit iTheatre to redevelop the site over the course of the coming season and debut a new site sometime in 2012. The new, database driven site, which will include a custom content management system, will take its first bow sometime before the start of the 2014-15 season.

When iTheatre originally approached SH Interactive, which was Piscean Design at that point, the company was not in a position to develop a CMS for the theatre. But the recent changes in SH Interactive’s workload now permitted the company to start work on the CMS, which will be part of a third version of the website in the Laravel framework.

Other improvements to the site will be a theatregoer comments section for each show, new photos, video interviews with directors and actors in the show and dynamic photo slideshows for current productions. Some of these improvements will be added this season, as materials are delivered.

Scott Hired at Universal Laser Systems

Fresh out of school, Scott Hummel was recruited by Universal Laser Systems at his Art Institute of Phoenix portfolio show.

Scott graduated with highest honors from the Art Institute, with a GPA of 3.9. He started his position as a web developer on July 6, 2010, just days after the show. His duties include web development tasks on the company’s several websites.

Scott helped lead the re-development of the company’s OEM website. Scott chose the CodeIgniter PHP framework for the project, based on his experience with CI while in school. That website launched in May 2011 and featured a user back-end so potential customers could save various configurations and then contact the company to purchase that configuration. After that, attention turned to the company’s flagship website.

His final project, what came to be referred to as "the leads site," was hosted at an internal domain not visible to the public.
