I am using this for an online portfolio for my wife for her PhD. We looked though dozens of templates and this one is by far the best for our needs. I will rate and recommend.

Words can’t express how satisfied I am not just with this theme, but the support… Looks exactly like a professional movie site should. My production has a very high standard and it was crucial the website reflected that standard. Thank you Chris!!!
