TLDR; You may need to update your gig gallery!
What are we changing?
Starting from the 1st March it will be mandatory for all gigs in the Video & Animation category to have a gig video.
What do I need to do?
If you don’t already have a video of your work (not including deliveries) you will need to upload one before 21st March 2017!
To do this:
- Go to My Gigs page and edit your gig
- Go to Gallery tab
- Make sure to read the tooltips for the video upload
- Upload your video
Why are we doing this?
It’s important for buyers to be able to see a samples of your work in order for them to understand what you offer and your level of professionalism. Gigs with good quality, useful videos have a much high buyer engagement.
What should be included in my video?
Your video should have high production quality and be representative of what you will deliver. The most successful videos contain your “value prop” messaging as well as actual samples of your work. Do not simply post a prior delivery without context.
What if I need help with my video?
Services in the Video & Animation category will generally require you to have professional video skills, so we expect this won’t be an issue for sellers.

What if I don’t upload a video by date TBD?
Your gig will be rejected and would be in a pending status until you upload a video.
