Stringr App | Shoot Video: Uber like service5133

Hi All,

I signed up for Stringr a few days and got invited to shoot video for a local TV station in the St. Simons Island area. (Since I am on vacation, I referred the job to a Member of the We Get Around Network. While the job disappeared within minutes, I suggest signing up using my friend-get-a-friend code that will earn you an extra $10 on your first project: 6WRCCF7

Stringr is a freelance marketplace for video (okay to shoot with a smartphone) for both breaking news and evergreen stories.

Since I uploaded some video yesterday (31 July 2017) of the extreme winds and surf on St. Simons, I could imagine that they saw that I followed their guidelines - 30 second clips, hold the camera still, etc. - that they invited me to shoot this tiny job. (I also uploaded video of a car fire with flames from last week.)

So, why join? Your evergreen video might get used more than once and you get paid each time (Matterport: are you listening?)

We all are photographers. We can follow the Stringr video guidelines with our smartphones (or DSLR). And, we might get to see the video on our local news.

I could imagine that some of us will see spot news and get paid. And, I could imagine that some of us will shoot evergreen video and get paid.

Seems like Stringr works best for either spot news (that you originate) or in locations that TV Stations want to cover, but do not want to send a videographer.

Let me know what you think?

I also communicated with them about the refer a friend program on the web sign up. It had a disclaimer about June 30th 2017. Their response to me was as follows:

The refer a friend program expired June 30. As of that date we are no longer sending out referral bonuses.

Really cool! I signed up and much to my surprise there are a couple of opportunities that may turn out to be quite lucrative! They are wanting footage of the upcoming solar eclipse on August 21st. A town about 45 minutes from me 2 seconds shorter than the longest duration of total eclipse at 2 min and 38 sec and there is an airport there that is hosting a viewing and expecting thousands of people!

They actually limited the number of cars allowed to park there at 5,000. If I get some good footage it might really sell a few times at $40 a shot for crowd and interview shots and $25 for footage of the eclipse.

Thanks for the heads up @DanSmigrod!

Looks like I made $40 today (21 August 2017 via Stringr for my Time-Lapse video of the Solar Eclipse Party on the Roof at Atlanta Tech Village. ( I would have shot this video anyway. )

Once I get the PayPal payment Tuesday, I will post the amount.
