HOW IT WORKS
Simply put, Stringr is a marketplace that allows media organizations (such as TV news stations) to buy video from both amateur and professional videographers.
The media organizations can preview all footage. If they like what they see, they can immediately download the HD version. Once they do, you (the videographer) will get paid the next business day!
Stringr also brings work to you. If you download our app and enable push notifications, Stringr will let you know when the media outlets want something filmed.
Make sure you tag liberally and accurately. The stations search videos by location and keyword, so the better tagged your video, the more likely it is to be picked up.
Also, if you are new to Stringr, make sure your videos are broadcast-ready with clear, steady shots. And if you are filming from a phone, hold it horizontally.
Stringr will let you know when the media outlets want something shot. If they use your video, you get paid.
Stringr will pay you the next business day via PayPal to the email account you used at registration. Every time a different media organization downloads your video, you get a notification of payment.
Uploading is simple. First register on our website or through our iOS or Android apps. On our website, go to the Upload Content tab, click + ADD FILE, and select your video. On our apps, go to the Uploads tab and tap +. You can also tap Capture to film a new video. But don’t forget to add tags and describe your video to improve the chances of it being purchased.
