Christopher Lee Ball
Christopher Lee Ball worked closely with Website Producer Abigail Murphy as the Architect for the Small Dark Places website.
With the film and the “Making of” documentary, the Small Dark Places website is the third deliverable in the multiplatform brief put together by Susie Watson and Kathleen McLynn. The goal of the site is to offer insights into the evolution of both the film and the documentary, including details about the project, behind the scenes information and pictures, and profiles for the cast and crew.
The website was a huge undertaking not only because it required tying information about two different films together in a unified manner, but also because of the sheer amount of content involved. Some of the duties Christopher is responsible for:
In addition to helping create the website, Christopher is also the Director and Producer (along with Rachael BernSousa) of the ‘Making of’ documentary “Illuminating Small Dark Places”.
When he’s not behind the camera, Christopher works in the User Experience Design group at the BBC developing new and interesting products as a Senior Information Architect. What is an Information Architect, you might ask? It generally involves Christopher attempting to channel his obsessive compulsive tendencies into innovative, consistent, user-friendly product design. What's this got to do with film? A lot, actually. As an Information Architect, he is charged not only with making information logical, find-able, and visually effective, but also constructing a 'narrative' for the user by creating a sense of past, present, and future. He hopes he has succeeded in blueprinting a successful website for Small Dark Places and Illuminating Small Dark Places.
Christopher was born in Asheville, North Carolina and lived in New York City for 10 years before moving to London in 2005.
