Millions of people enjoy watching online videos every day and video will only continue to grow in popularity. To take advantage of this viewing audience, we recommend that every artist should create their own portfolio video to show off their artwork.
ArtWanted has a built-in portfolio video feature for all members to showcase the video(s) they create. When you post a video to your ArtWanted account, a new VIDEO button will show up on your portfolio for everyone to watch your video. Here is how it works…
Step 2) Upload your video to a free video hosting site like YouTube.com or Vimeo.com
Step 3) Copy and paste either the link to the video page or the HTML embed code for your video(s) on the Video Portfolio section of our members area.
Here are a few ideas for videos you might create and display on your portfolio:
Time-lapse Video – Setup a camera and record a video of you creating an entire piece of art. Speeding up the final video will allow others to see your entire process in just a few minutes.
Instructional Video – Setup a camera (or have someone record you) showing the process you go through to create part or all of your artwork.
Event Video – If you are involved in a local art event, art show or exhibit be sure to record it. Then create a video of the highlights of the event.
