Introducing the new Genero profiles: Designed to show off your filmmaking portfolio!

Our wonderful team of developers are always busy improving Genero in all sorts of ways, but today there’s a more significant change that we’re excited to share! It’s time to introduce our beautiful new profile pages.

We’ve rolled out an updated profile design, to make you guys look better than ever! It was important for us that your work could be front and centre for clients to see, so we revamped and streamlined the old profile pages, and we’re pretty happy with the result.

There’s a few things you can do to make sure your Genero profile is looking its best though, so we’ve thrown together a couple of quick tips to help you look good and stand out to clients:

1. Update your profile picture!

Your profile picture is one of the first things clients see when reviewing your treatments, so help clients put a face to a name when you’ve pitched on a job.

You might want to show yourself in action on set, or if you’re an animator, it could be a great opportunity to share your illustration style with a little self portrait.

2. Add a banner image

Upload one of your favourite video stills, or share a behind the scenes photo! Banner images should be high-res and 16:9, with a max size of 2400px.

While you’re at it, if you’ve got some nice behind the scenes content, feel free to send it our way, as we love sharing snaps of our filmmakers doing their thing.

3. Show off your work

We want your Genero profile to be a beautiful portfolio of your best work! The new profiles list your Genero jobs first, followed by any work you’d like to show off.

All filmmakers can add up to 4 videos from Youtube or Vimeo to your profile, and ranked filmmakers can add up to 12. This is a great place to embed your showreel or favourite pieces of work, and choose a featured video to stand out from the rest.

4. Tell us about yourself

A well written bio is a great way to tell us more about YOU. How did you get into filmmaking? What great projects have you worked on? Where have you worked and what are your passions? We love getting to know you, and so do our clients.

5. List your skills

Tell us more about the kinds of work you’re best at. If you’re an animator, this is the place to let us know what type of work you do, so you can list things like 3D Modelling, Animation or Motion Graphics as skills. For other filmmakers, try sharing the gear types, editing software or filmmaking styles you use most ie. Documentaries, VFX, Drone Operator, Timelapse. These will help clients find you for paid work!
