Video FAQs

Why is there a video of someone else on my profile?

The images and videos that appear on your profile are from productions in which you have participated. Operabase auto-populates this section of your profile with either a video or photo from a production you were in. This is to avoid your profile being blank and is easily remedied.

Once you've logged in to your profile, you will need to select an image to be displayed as your profile photo and another photo to be displayed as your cover photo.

You have the option to add a video instead of a cover photo to be displayed across the top of your profile page. The video you select, needs to be added under the videos tab as an Intro showreel.

How do I delete the video that appears on my profile?

Operabase PRO subscribers can log in to their profiles, navigate to the video tab and hide / show, edit and delete any videos that they do not want on their profile.

If you do not have an Operabase PRO subscription, we recommend that you start a 30-day free trial to enable you to determine what is visible on your profile and use the various features available.

Why can’t I edit / delete some of the videos on my profile?

The videos section is divided into Livestream & Full performance videos, Intro showreel, Audition showreel, Video clips & general profile videos and Production videos.

If you have a subscription, you will be able to determine which videos are displayed on your profile by navigating to the Videos section in edit.

What’s the difference between an Intro showreel and an Audition showreel?

The intro showreel is fairly audience-oriented as this is the first thing they'll see when they visit your profile on the media widget. We recommend adding a highlight of a live performance or an engaging video that you'd like to showcase to the 2 million people visiting Operabase.

The audition showreel is more for professional users of Operabase. This is where you can demonstrate your range of performances and career goals by adding videos that showcase your abilities. These videos are displayed in our Casting Tool that has 10,000 searches per month as casting professionals from around the world look for artists for their current and future productions.
