What is a Quality Ranking?

Genero introduced Quality Rankings to highlight filmmakers who consistently deliver high quality filmmaking. The criteria listed below show the selections, awards and achievements we use to decide BRONZE, SILVER, GOLD and PLATINUM directors.

Your quality ranking will be displayed on your profile along with all of your achievements.

Above BRONZE, SILVER and GOLD, we have a PLATINUM level of filmmakers. A PLATINUM level can be achieved by meeting the criteria listed below, or by receiving an invitation from Genero. PLATINUM filmmakers receive exclusive access to important briefs, jobs, and opportunities. Learn more.

From time to time Genero may adjust the Quality Rankings criteria to ensure rankings are useful for both filmmakers and clients. It's possible your ranking may change when this happens; if so we'll contact you to let you know.

If you're a high quality filmmaker with proven credentials and a track record in quality and professionalism, you can apply directly to become a PLATINUM filmmaker.

I earned a Quality Ranking badge, now what?

It's been our pleasure to watch our filmmakers grow over time and refine their filmmaking chops. Ultimately we'd love to see you all achieve GOLD or PLATINUM Quality Rankings on Genero.

GOLD and PLATINUM filmmakers get access to extended and exclusive opportunities on Genero, so we encourage you to check out the criteria for each ranking and work towards achieving the next rank.

What does it mean to be a PLATINUM filmmaker?

As a PLATINUM filmmaker you gain access to:

  • Exclusive projects, jobs and opportunities only available to PLATINUM filmmakers
  • Exclusive production grants for some Video Projects
  • Direct job opportunities matching your skill set and/ or location
  • Featured as one of our PLATINUM filmmakers and opportunities to have your work promoted on Genero, social media channels and via partners
  • Exclusive content development opportunities with Genero and our partners

We showcase your PLATINUM Quality Ranking and other Achievements on your profile page, and we highlight you as a PLATINUM filmmaker to clients too!

Because we put forward our PLATINUM filmmakers to clients and exclusive opportunities we need to make sure we're keeping up with what you're doing. To retain your PLATINUM status you need to stay involved over the next 12 months or you'll drop back to GOLD. Find out how to retain your PLATINUM status.

If you're a high quality filmmaker with proven credentials and a track record in quality and professionalism, you can apply directly to become a PLATINUM filmmaker.
