Hey ! I am working on this site, https://www.lookstudios.com/
It's pretty image/video heavy but I was wondering if there were other issues with the site causing the extremely slow load time. We've resized all the images and gotten rid of any gifs. But I was wondering if there might be any other issues/solutions?
@aarati Particularly, the cover pages load slow --> https://www.lookstudios.com/cnn-pride/
For instance, the cover video for the above page is only 600kb but still loads late

There are a few errors in the console. Images and videos on lookstudios.com/projects are served via HTTP instead of HTTPS. That could cause the server to take a wee bit longer:
It’s even more media content on the frontpage served via HTTP + a minor cookie issue:
Then there are a few videos that are 1-3MB in size. That just takes a while. Not much you could do about that…
I guess that the site was hosted unter HTTP in the beginning and you switched to HTTPS lateron? That can cause the database to have the wrong links inside. Best is to follow Armins tutorial over here, to migrate all the content and links.
You can also try to enable caching for your website. Although that doesn’t apply for first time visitors the site gets a lot faster for frequent visitors.
Is there an extensive amount of 3rd party plugins installed in your wordpress?
I’m curious about how you made that section’s 🙃 hoverstate work:
I don't answer or check forum DMs, please just post on the forum.
Before you post:

4. Now see if your problem solved itself

When you post:
