Dark Screen Productions

Website Creation

My first website commission was in 1998

By experiencing the evolution of the internet from its start my skills evolved alongside it. A true education.





Responsive Websites

Re-sizeable websites

I generate highly responsive websites for you.

This means that they can be viewed properly on any screen be they PC, MAC, Android, I-phone or laptop. One of the latest communication methods is via SMS text transmission embedded into your webpages. Send Messages to your client list mobiles and more...

Graphics and CSS animation

I love good graphics


I have been using graphics software since it was born. Retouching, cropping, blemish and wrinkle removal. Logo design is great fun.

I love to work with good quality pictures. I never use copyrighted images. CSS animations can bring websites to life.

DIP: Data Acquisition, interpretation and presentation

You can learn from your clients

A combination of HTML5, PHP and MYSQL results in mass survey capabilities along with email and SMS feedback systems and payment processing.

For a bespoke survey, especially in the health field, please speak to me.

Search Engine Optimisation

The step to fame

Social media is very good for getting the word out but has its limits depending on your subject.

SEO is specific content driven. It is also speed driven. Thus it is crucial to create fast loading sites or your google position will suffer.


Website Hosting

Hosting, databases and email

My own dedicated sever has acres of space on it for your website if you wish. Hosting fees are currently £100 per year.

Having my own server means that I can get your email and website up and running with a holding page within one hour!

I create both static websites such as this one and dynamic websites for data gathering, mailing list compilation and bespoke surveys. Who am I? - Paul Manley.

Website Repair:

Occasionally I am asked to examine a website because it is sick. I put my website doctor hat on snake my way through the conundrums that messy websites present. Frequently the clients webperson has simply gone missing.


Sometimes the intermediary company who hosts ( or pretends to be editing ) your website will not be in control of the people contracted to do the job, messages get confused and lost and nothing happens. In which case give me the 'keys' and I will investigate and hopefully cure your malady. At the least, I can tell you what your next steps should be.


I steer clear of a Content Management System like Wordpress, Joomla for production purposes. However, if you have a problem with your installation or edits, plugins, slow loading speeds or just a general cock-up, I can usually help.


If the client wants to update their website then I can build a bespoke CMS for them or I can provide my services to make edits as directed by them. Priced at an hourly rate.


A diagnostic test of your website loading speed can reveal the many errors which are making it sluggish or dysfunctional.


My services are priced in modular form depending on your needs. Each quote is bespoke.
I work 34 hours per week on website related tasks. I am available by phone, text or mail every day at all waking hours.


Why do I do it?

Stubborn is my  middle name when it comes to websites, like a dog with a bone, I don't let go or give up because I love making them.

I am VERY responsive to urgent edits, I can even make minor edits from my mobile. 

Clients are usually a bit lost. One must be fairly certain of what you want from your website. As such I like to discuss the nature of fledgling businesses before we begin. I then write a plan which specifies 'modules' all priced. Some of the modules are necessary, some are optional and could be added later on. The plan will include detailed intructions for our collaboration. A few of the examples below are subscription and sales based projects.
