Can I add photos and videos to my bio?

If I've worked with some other crew members on the site, can I review them to let others know how good they are? 

-      Yes! We allow members to comment publicly on other users walls. This allows others to get a sense of how the crew member works. 


What if my buyer wants to hire me for additional days? 

-      No problem! You define your days, rate, overtime, rental fees, etc with the booker. Just make sure that all fees are defined well in advance of the work date. 


Can I offer more than one service on Crewrr?

-     Yes! Just create one account and then you are able to list multiple services within that profile. So, for example, under one profile you may have 1 listing for being a gaffer, 1 listing for being a grip, 1 listing for being a Cinematographer, etc. 


Can I offer comprehensive services as a production company on Crewrr?   

- It is possible. While Crewrr isn't designed specifically for production companies, you can list under 1 profile everything that is included for a 1 day shoot. For example, say you are a one-man-production who offers cinematography, sound, lighting, directing, producing, and much more, describe that in your description and be sure to list your service as "production company". 


If I list my specific gear on my profile, will that be searchable?

Yes! If you write in your profile, for example, that you own and operate an Alexa, then each time someone searches for "Alexa" and you meet their search criteria, you will appear in their search results.
