Hey creative people! I’m sorry that I’m posting too much but been thinking on some ideas / suggestions for you guys / authors.

I guess a lot of you authors have a demo reel on your websites, but why not use a demo reel to showcase your portfolio on your VH profile page?

I definitely think it will spice up your profile as it can be a promotional tool.

Have an awesome day!

Great idea.

It was so logical, it’s really strange that it took us (I mean you Zon :) ) long to come up with that. Nice one, Zon.

Great idea! And it would be excellent if in the profile would be to insert a standard video player Envato, as in our projects. Or any other – Youtube, Vimeo, but the main thing that you can watch videos without leaving the user profile. :)

Glad to help kids, is just came to me that you guys are so talented (as I’ve seen some author’s demo reels) that this made bring fresh things to your portfolio.

There can be a competition also! “The Best VH Demo Reel 2010” ohh..I would love more competions around here! (can I read your opinion, Mark?)

That’s true Alex, maybe if the idea is well received, our awesome Dev’s will give us the vid player inside our profiles!

One thing though is that leaving your profile page to watch the demo reel can be also a potential way to get more exposure if you are using vimeo for example as you can set your own channel with all your portfolio with a link to your VH item on the description. Potential buyers would be watching the previews in HD from your channel / group!

There is a VH vimeo channel too! Post your work there here! and using youtube (which has more traffic, imao) may give you more exposure and consequent sales!

It’s an idea that’s been thrown around a fair bit, but it’s definitely a good idea.

I’d even take it a step further and say that Videohive should have a reel.. updated every couple of months that plays on the home page… with at track from Audiojungle of course!
