REEL-WHEELS.COM – the call to action
Thomas Smith Productions offers graphics, editing, script writing and video production services. The Reel-Wheels.com web site is a service of the company recently launched to fill a niche in the movie and television production market. It is an online picture car database web site where vehicle owners can list their vehicles for film, television and commercial use. Reel-Wheels.com is a subscriber-based service that eliminates the middleman by connecting the production company directly with the vehicle owner.
This web site is targeted at two groups of users, vehicle owners and production companies looking for picture cars for their production needs.
For the car owner we provide an inexpensive and easy means of putting their vehicle(s) in front of those responsible for finding picture vehicles. For production companies, our goal is to put a world of vehicles at their fingertips. The best part is this service is free for the production companies. This is a searchable database making it easy to look for vehicles using parameters that fit the needs of the script. We are working to build a subscriber base with vehicles all over the United States, providing a source for vehicles no matter where a company is making their picture.
I have built this web site myself with two initial desires. First, I wanted car owners to be able to fill in the form and upload all the necessary data on their own. It does that, though there are instances of subscribers uploading pictures that don’t exactly meet the descriptions outlined on the web site. Secondly, I wanted the database to be searchable in such a way that a production person could look for specific vehicles that fit their needs. That also works and there is also flexibility to add additional parameters as the database grows and production company needs become more specific.
Any critiques are welcomed and I am especially interested in ideas to improve the focus, communication uncertainty or confusion that may exist in the layout that hinder higher subscribers from following through.
