With our advanced Theme Options Panel, you can easily change every detail of your theme to best suit your needs.
Responsive & Retina Ready
The layout of this theme automatically adapts to fit on any screen resolution on desktop and mobile devices (iPhone, iPad).

Reel features a fluid, responsive layout, so your pages will display perfectly across mobile and tablet devices. Every detail of your website will look perfect and professional, regardless of what resolution or screen size visitors have.
Slideshow with Video Background & Lightbox
Reel comes packaged with a powerful homepage slideshow that works great with images and videos. It can be also easily converted in a static section instead of a slideshow.
The Slideshow supports Vimeo, YouTube and self-hosted video backgrounds. Just enter the URL of a Vimeo or YouTube video or upload your self-hosted video and the theme will do the rest.
A video lightbox is also integrated in the homepage slideshow where you can feature YouTube, Vimeo or self-hosted videos.
This makes Reel a great theme choice if you have a video of a demo reel or a product that you want to feature on the front page.
Video Background on Mobile Devices!
Yes, you’re reading it correctly! Reel 2.0 supports a video background on mobile devices. Self-hosted and Vimeo videos will now play automatically on your website, as long as your mobile devices are not in the Low Power Mode.
If you prefer to have an image fallback on mobile devices, there is a new option in the Customizer > Homepage Slider which lets you disable video background on mobile devices:
Page Builder Integration
Reel comes with a full fledged drag & drop page builder that allows you to create countless pages using the content and media shortcodes.
In order to make using the drag and drop Page Builder easy for you, we’ve included a few pre-built templates which you can import to Reel with just one click.
Below you can see a few examples of pages created using the Page Builder:
- About page
- Services page
Multiple Portfolio Templates
The theme includes 3 Portfolio Templates, but you have full control to customize and configure each of them as you want. You can easily change the number of video columns from 2, 3 or 4.
Video Headers in Portfolio Posts
With the new Reel 2.1 update, the theme became even more powerful for video creators.
We’ve added new options in the Video Settings from Portfolio posts so you can customize the header area with a background video.
This feature works great with self-hosted videos as well as YouTube and Vimeo videos.
You can view here a live example of a post with a video header.
Video Background when Hovering Portfolio posts
In Reel 2.0 we’ve also integrated another great feature for video professionals. You can assign a short video to each of your portfolio posts to play when hovering that specific post in the Portfolio gallery. See it live on the demo page.
Thanks to a new GIPHY integration that we’ve added to our theme, it’s now possible to use a YouTube or Vimeo link for the video shown on hover in the portfolio, not just self-hosted videos.
This feature will save you a lot of time, as until now it supported only self-hosted videos, meaning that you had to manually prepare and optimize the MP4 file. Well, now everything is done automatically for you.
You can even adjust the duration and the start point for each video.
Autoplay Video Background in Portfolio
Reel includes an option that can make all videos in the portfolio to play continuously.
Since videos generated using the GIPHY API are very small and well optimized, so you can enable this option without worrying that it will slow down your website.
Personalize to Match Your Style
The Live Customizer allows you to make changes to the theme and get an immediate preview. Customize Colors, Fonts, Background, Logo, Menu, Widgets and more, all with a live preview.
The theme also includes support for more than 800 Google Fonts.
Reel 2.0 also includes a new gradient editor, so you can customize the colors of the overlay in the slideshow as you want.
1-Click Demo Content Install
You can replicate the structure and the look of the demo page with one click, by loading the dummy content and widgets.
