As long as you're logged in (you can do this now or we'll bring it up for you shortly), your brief will be saved as a draft in your account page. You're able to preview your brief before publishing, but you can't edit once it is published. However, we can edit, so if you want anything changed after the brief goes live just email firstname.lastname@example.org. The budget can't be decreased but it can be increased.
Please don't mention the label or artist here e.g. "Video required for successful indie band. Comprehensive promo campaign planned."
Longer description, expanding on the above, but please don't mention the label or artist here e.g. "Video required for successful indie band. Comprehensive promo campaign planned."
If you're anticipating a lot of interest (ie you're posting a good budget for a popular artist), you might like to paste this line into your brief: "For this brief, we only want to hear from experienced directors who have made popular, award-winning, brand-commissioned or editorially-featured videos please. Thanks very much."
If you’re planning to email watermarked Mp3s to directors, please supply an email address in the brief description, so directors can email you direct.
You can offer additional budget 'for the right ideas' by stating that in the brief description. The budget you select here is the minimum you agree to pay and decides in which category your brief is advertised (ie premium/other/lyric)
Lyric videos feature the song’s lyrics. They are more simple to make than promos and so cheaper. They can be highly creative and are often very popular. Labels typically use lyric videos ahead of promo release to:
- get content online quickly
- capture views
- direct attention to label or artist playlists
Premium briefs get additional advertising and attract more experienced directors
Name city, state or county for the shoot...
The video can be made anywhere worldwide
Concerned about audio security?
These are your options, bear in mind only upgraded directors and admins can see your brief:

- Watermark your track using eg fatdrop.co.uk Ask directors to post their email address in comments and send them a watermarked MP3.
