Ratings and Reviews
Sometimes you make money, sometimes you work for free
It’s a great concept, but out of the 17 requests I’ve had in the last two years, only 6 have paid.
I’ve asked why I didn’t get paid, they have a cookie cutter explanation, “shoot steady, 15-20 seconds, no pans, wide, tight and medium shots. Get good audio” But that’s not why, I’m a professional, 5 time Emmy award winning photojournalist, I know how to shoot. The real reason is organizational. If the station requests is able to shoot their own requests, the video payment gets cancelled. And there is no communication to the Stringr shooters. Also, if another Stringr beats you to the upload, they may get paid and you won’t.
I’ve learned not to go out of my way to shoot requests. Only shoot if it’s close by. It’s no fun driving across town, just to shoot video for free.
The app gets a second star only because I did get paid 6 of the 17 times, and when you get paid you get paid by PayPal next business day.
Has its moments.
This app needs improvements, when your the only one at a site and get the video bought is great. But it’s not fair to accept a job only to find out there’s 3 more folks that accepted the the same job. It creates competition and a waste of time on videos not bought. Seems like only one out the 4 will get lucky enough to sell the video. At this point I’m very frustrated wit this app. Unless you like competing for something that might not be bought, then this app is for you.
This app is awesome
I have had so much success with this app. The thing I love is that sometimes you will sell video several months after you originally uploaded it. Your videos never get old.
