    In the categories section of the “Videos – Reels” page is there a way to add a “miscellanies” category? Some of my stuff that I would like to put up doesn’t belong in any of the categories such as Trailer, Demo Reel, etc.

    Hello Stephen,

    We’d rather have categories for the videos so that things are organized. Maybe you can give us some categories to add?

    If you can’t decide on a category go ahead and put it under the support category.

    I don’t want to put it in the Support category because in my mind that category is for samples that you would put up to help better demonstrate a point in a forum on how to do something.

    I do a lot of corporate type videos. I have created some really cool opens for them and only want to showcase the open. What are your thoughts on where that belongs?

    Possibly an “Opens” category? That would include TV show opens and stuff? I’m not sure?

    There is a television show category with a sub category of Episode Promo which seems to fit what you’re speaking of. Look at the other details under the television show category for other options like this.

    -Commercials
    -Composers
    -Demo Reels
    -Feedbacks
    -Instructional
    -Music Videos
    -Short Films
    -Sponsor Showcases
    -Trailers
    -Voiceovers

    When will it be added to the “Media Types” category on the main Video – Reels page?

    It will be added once there are a few active videos that are using that category. Usually things are pretty slow taking off, we just added this category a few weeks ago. If you added a few good ones, I’m sure we’d turn it on =)

    I just added a video: https://reels.creativecow.net/film/for-fun

    Here is another video that I did not do that is in the Trailer category that should be moved to TV: https://reels.creativecow.net/film/adventure-addix-intro

    Hello Stephen,

    You wrote in your description.

    “This video is not for a TV show, it was placed in the TV category due to a lack of a better place to put it.”

    The TV category is not a catch all. If the video is for a TV show or is a TV show then you can put the video there. If the video is a trailer of some kind put it in that category. If you need a catch all category use the support or feedback category.

    Abraham
