Start Creating Your MySHOOT Profile – You Can Do It Or We Can Do It For You
As soon as you choose your membership level, you can start creating your profile anytime. Uploading your profile copy, photos, logo and reel is easy. For those who don't have the time to set it up themselves, SHOOT is offering a set up service with a low fee where we will find, gather, polish up and post your information and reels for your approval and then show you how to keep it up to date.

Introducing MyNewsroom Content Curation Feature
Taking the SHOOT NewsPage embed feature to the next level, SHOOT Newsroom allows members to create and manage an embeddable list of SHOOT Articles, SPW Releases, and curate content from third party websites, blogs, social sites - similar in concept to creating a video playlist on YouTube or Vimeo and embedding elsewhere on the web.  Setting up your MyNewsroom, consisting only of published SHOOT news & features articles, SPW Releases and curated content that you've created (can be embedded HTML web page or blog) is as easy as copying our <iframe> code snippet and pasting the snippet into the desired location on your website. Primarily used to include resources from other domains, the <iframe>’s strength is that the embedded code is ‘live’ and immediately syncs with the parent document. This gives you the ability to create, manage and display your own custom, up-to-the-minute, News Page on your website. MyNewsroom also provides an RSS feed URL which can be used instead of iframe code when not approperiate such as emailing using Mailchimp, Constant Contact, etc. PR|Agency level members can create and manage a NewsRoom for each of your clients all in one place.

MySHOOT and MyNewsroom are the next generation extension of our 55-year commitment to introducing the work and covering the news of producers, directors, cinematographers, editors, post, VFX & animation artists, and music & sound artisans. These dynamic new offerings will be used for discovering and hiring talent by advertising agency creatives and producers, brands, TV, cable, movie, online and mobile content production/post decision-makers. The best part – the capability to set up your own MySHOOT Company or Talent Profile and MyNewsroom is included with all of the new economical membership options!

Elevate your SEO Rankings with new SHOOT SmartLink Feature
Another feature included with three of the four membership levels is the SHOOT Smartlink feature that finds all instances, in the future and past, of a company or talent name in all SHOOT databases and embeds a hyperlink to either your MySHOOT Profile page or your own web or social page. This can be useful for our members SEO PageRank because links coming into a webpage (i.e. your MySHOOT page or website homepage) from high authority site (i.e. SHOOTonline) helps a page's SEO rankings by adding a vote of recommendation toward your site to search bots and is an important factor in determining a webpage's search ranking. 

SHOOT Continues Its Mission To Connect Content Producers With Industry Decision-makers 
SHOOT's unwavering mission for 55 years has been to... provide vital news and information about the creation of all forms of motion pictures ( feature films, television, docs, shorts, commercials, music videos, web, mobile, promos, trailers and branded content) necessary to its readers across all segments of the advertising & entertainment industries and to serve as a conduit between ad agencies, brands, entertainment companies, production & post cos/services & technology providers to help them come together as part of one community — opening doors to create new work, new business, new opportunities, and new partnerships.

SHOOT continues to accomplish this by providing news, information, perspectives, the best new work and the people and technology behind that work with features, interviews, survey articles and columns published across all of SHOOT's print & digital platforms. SHOOT also focuses on providing clarity regarding the blurring boundaries between advertising and entertainment, helping executives and artisans to capitalize on the ever-changing media landscape.

“Now, with its new member levels, SHOOT takes connecting content creators to potential clients to the next level, making it easier than ever for them to connect with each other,” explains SHOOT publisher & editorial director, Roberta Griefer. Griefer added, “I've wanted to offer our audience a talent database for a very long time and have in the past looked at purchasing existing services but none were quite right so ultimately we decided it would be best for our audience to build from the ground up so it would be totally targeted to their needs and we would have the ability to incorporate unique features such as MyNewsroom. We are truly thrilled to offer this new service at a very low cost by including it at no charge with SHOOTonline membership ---whether your work is :15, :60, or 2:00 hours long, becoming a SHOOT member will help companies, reps, agents and individual artisans connect their work to potential commercial and entertainment clients.”
