My last website was done entirely in Flash. It was buggy, unreliable, and impossible to update. Basically, everything I wanted in a professional site. So, after about a year of that, I've completely overhauled the design (all HTML now). In an effort to make the site easy-to-use as well as reflect my personal philosophy, I've taken a minimalistic approach. I'd love to hear any comments and suggestions (particularly honest, constructive input). You can view it at www.ahnelson.com.
Thanks guys!

Like the design a lot.
I've never personally liked flash embedded videos, but I think that's my personal beef.
You're resume takes you away from your site though. You should have it to where it opens in a new window instead of taking over the window you're currently in.
I feel like having just a reel up there is never enough. Maybe a work page where you show more about those projects.

Thanks for the input!
I meant for visitors to download the PDF of my resume, but I forgot that many browsers don't give you an option. They just open it in the tab or window you're using. I'll probably post a fix for that tonight.
Is there any other information, besides project descriptions, that you think is missing?

Nice job Alex! A definite improvement. Maybe a little bio about yourself?? I dunno I like the simplicity and its nice to see a website with a different color that's not distracting.

Very nice. I never saw the original, but this is clean and elegant. Everything design should be IMHO. Nice reel too.

Besides providing a reel, what do you guys think is the most important or desirable function of a cinematographer's site?
