15 Gorgeous Fullscreen Video WordPress Themes
If you’re a creative type, there’s no better way to show off your work than with a video theme.
Once a page is loaded and a video has started to play, there’s an incentive there for visitors to stick around and explore your site further because they’ve already invested some of their time watching your clip.
Videos draw in your visitors, allowing you to easily showcase your work with minimal effort on your visitors’ behalf. If you’re a business owner, videos allow you to quickly and effectively get your message in front of users to your site.
While there are countless fullscreen photography WordPress themes available, fullscreen video themes are few and far between, especially ones that are fully responsive.
Unsurprisingly, none of the themes in this round up are free – all are premium themes and justifiably so because a lot of work has been put into creating them.
I’ve handpicked this bunch of fullscreen video themes, all of which are best suited to videographers, photographers and other creative types, such as musicians.
