Genero tips • Written by Ellie CK, Creative Community Manager
Collaboration is key, and on Genero we want to make sure the whole crew is involved! Whether you’re pitching on a brief or already in production, you can add key members of your production to your team, and coast through the process with everyone onboard.
When pitching on Genero, you can add key members of your production team during the submission process – think Director, DOP, Producer… you name it! This is an awesome way to highlight your team and their work to clients, and also means that your entire crew can access the treatment from their own Genero accounts.
As you add team members to a pitch, you can choose their level of access, so a co-director or producer might be perfect to receive full access and communicate with the client, while you might have others in your team who can view the treatment but not respond to message from the client.
For individual filmmakers, this means you can add collaborators to your pitch. For production companies, you can pitch from a company profile but add your director, producer and any other crew using their personal accounts!
In the ‘Add your team’ section of the submission form, add your team by entering their email address, and they’ll be invited to join your pitch. Otherwise, you can add them easily if they’re already in your Network.
If you’ve added team members to your pitch and get commissioned for the job, your team members will be able to access messaging, manage timelines, upload release forms and more. You can also add more collaborators at this production stage once you lock in crew, like adding your editor so they can upload the edits directly to the platform.
This new tool also means your entire team can now get credit for their work on the video! When the job is complete, the brief will appear as ‘Commissioned on Genero’ on your team members’ profiles along with their credit/role.
Invite your team to join Genero! Encourage them to add a profile picture, bio and examples of their work to get things looking good for your next pitch.
Do you have any in-progress or completed briefs on Genero? Add your team members to those briefs right now to give them the required access for current productions, or add a credit to their profile if the brief is complete! Just head to your briefs, click through to the brief, then click the team button in the top right corner.
