Burmese Dreaming is a creative non-fiction based upon stories from the life of a refugee, Say Say La. This narrative is supplemented by stories contributed by students of the English Immersion Program based in Umphiem Mai Refugee Camp.

The footage for the film has been shot throughout central and southern Burma and includes footage from pro-democracy demonstrations and the refugee camps on the Thailand-Burma border.

Bordermedia was asked to design and build a new website to help with the promotion of Burmese Dreaming. The site was built using the popular WordPress system – allowing the owner of the website to continually update news items, blog posts, current reports and maintain their photo gallery.

Karen Human Rights Group

Karen Human Rights Group (KHRG) is a small grass-roots organisation documenting the human rights situation of people in rural Burma.

One of our developers undertook a redesign and redevelopment of the KHRG website whilst working for KHRG, which began with an assessment of the current website – looking at its design, speed to download & visitor statistics.

A series of documentation was drawn up including sitemaps & wireframe diagrams detailing the proposed new design & functionality. This was followed by full page mock-ups in Photoshop.

The new website has been developed in HTML and PHP with a MySQL database storing report information. Search & donation functionality has been introduced to the website. A password-protected admin area allows KHRG to update sections of the website themselves, and a Dreamweaver template system has been put into place for updating static website content.

Delivery of the website was followed up with several training sessions, and a training manual containing all the information required for KHRG to update and maintain the system themselves.
