Viewing your profile
To view your profile, select your Avatar in the upper right and click on ‘Profile’.
This view is very close to what potential clients will see when visiting your profile. Except of course that only you have the options of making edits.
Adding projects to your profile
Projects you completed on Storyhunter are automatically added to your profile.
Where possible, add a link to the final published project.
To add a project you worked on outside of Storyhunter, select ‘Add Project’ on your profile page. On the displayed dialog, enter your project information.
This information is optional, but if provided will allow us to verify your work. We will get in touch with the publisher to confirm your work. Verified work enhances your chances of getting hired.
Editing existing projects
To edit existing projects, scroll down to your project list and the project you want to edit. Select the pencil icon and you will have the option to make edits.
Adding (video) links to completed platform projects
Once a project on Storyhunter is completed, it does not include a detailed description or a link to the final published project. This is something you will need to add manually.
To do this, select the pencil icon next to the project, then enter your project description. Then look for the link section and enter a link to the published project. If possible, Storyhunter will automatically create a thumbnail from this link. If not, or if you want to change the thumbnail, you can always select 'Change thumbnail' and upload your own image.
What will be added automatically is the project title, the services you provided and your review for this project.
Editing verified projects
Verified projects are projects that have been confirmed by your publisher or client. If you need to edit the video link of these projects, it will lose its verified status.
Adjusting your project order
To change the order of your projects in your project list, use Drag & Drop: Hover and click on a project, then while continuing to hold down your mouse button, move it up or down to the desired location.
Adjusting your top banner
The top banner on your profile is automatically created from projects in your project list.
Only certain types of projects will be included in the top banner:
- Needs to have a linked video
- The video needs to be playable/embeddable within Storyhunter. This currently includes videos hosted on YouTube, Vimeo, and Facebook.
If your project does not match with these requirements, it will not be shown in the top banner.
Order of projects in top banner
The order of videos in your top banner is the same as the project order in your project list. To adjust it, adjust your project order.
Adjusting your personal information
To adjust your personal information, including name, bio, equipment, languages and more, navigate to Settings > Profile or Settings > Background.
You can update Home Location by visiting Settings>Basic Profile>Location.
You can update Current Location by visiting Settings>Options and unchecking "Match me with nearby postings based on my IP address."
