New Theme: Sundance

I’m excited to introduce a brand new free video theme brought to you by the team here at Automattic.

Despite its minimalist design, Sundance was crafted with clean, elegant typography and close attention to detail.

The home page offers a featured video carousel where you can highlight a maximum of ten posts that are assigned to the video post format. In the sidebar, you can add your social network links — Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Flickr — so that your readers can stay connected.

Sundance is designed with responsive design in mind. It provides a tailored layout depending on the device you are using. This makes your blog look good not only on desktop browsers, but also on devices with smaller screens, such as the iPad and iPhone.

Sundance supports an optional widget area in the sidebar, a custom background, and custom header image. As always, you can click on over to the Theme Showcase to read more about Sundance.

    Haven’t played with the video themes yet…heck, haven’t really added much video to the blog yet, so I guess that should come first! ;) But I do like this design…

    Thanks for this new minimalist responsive width theme. I like it very much. It’s easy on the eyes and will frame images and showcase textual content beautifully. I’m already using it on my personal blog but have lots of tweaking to do.

    Great idea. Having a theme designed for video on WordPress is a great addition to options for bloggers depending on their content. Now videographers can use a theme that will showcase their work nicely.

      I’m glad you like this theme! Sundance is, at this point, only for WordPress.com blogs and is not available for downloading. However it is going to be available for self-hosted users soon in Extend so please keep an eye on it.

    Does this work only with the wordpress.com video upgrade or can we include video from 3rd party services?
