From doing some interface research I knew I wanted a very plain site, basically just a place to hold my animation. I did not want to just upload it to Vimeo and link people to it from there, it is more professional to have a site.
After looking and testing out many different themes I choose the invictus theme. It had the option of autoplay video background which is what I wanted and it is also responsive. I then started editing the theme, deleted some code from the header.php that i did not need any more – logo and the nav bar. I then downloaded a plugin called wp splash page that i used to make my splash page with the introduction video. I tried to edit it so that after the splash page the next page comes up but you have to press the next button.
When I tried to upload my videos to my wordpress gallery it would not allow me as they were too big, the max they allow is 16mb which is nothing in relation to video. So I embedded my Vimeo videos. They however were not HD so I am using Youtube to embed the animation. Atleast I know it will load quickly and be in HD.
