We collect and store information that you provide to us through our interactions with you, including through our websites, in our stores, through our customer service representatives, at events, through mobile applications, through marketing efforts, including contests, sweepstakes and events, and through third parties. We may also collect your shipping information in the event that you purchase or win rewards through our site in order to receive your rewards or purchased items. If your reward is being shipped by the Artist and not directly by Creative Canvas, we will provide your shipping address to the Artist so that the shipment can be fulfilled. You may elect not to provide certain information, which could result in you not being able to take advantage of certain capabilities of this website, our mobile applications or other services we offer. For example, you must provide certain personal information in order to place a payment through a third party processor. We may request, collect and store some or all of the following types of personal information: your name, billing address, shipping address, e-mail address, telephone number, financial and payment information, including your credit card number and expiration date, gender, personal interests, date of birth, and any information about a third party you provide accessing the website. If you access our website or mobile applications with your log-in credentials from a social networking site (e.g. Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter) or if you otherwise agree to associate your account with us with a social networking site, we may receive personal information about you from such social networking site, in accordance with the terms of use and privacy policy of such social networking site. We may add this to the information we have already collected from you via other interactions.

This information helps third parties deliver tailored advertisements to you and others on our behalf and on behalf of other advertisers throughout the Internet based on your interests and browsing of our website (remarketing). We use third-party audience data (such as age, gender, and interests) to better understand and advertise to audiences that visit our website. We do not use or associate personally identifiable information with remarketing lists, cookies, data feeds, or other anonymous identifiers.

By clicking on one of these URLs, you will automatically enter our website and we may collect information related to the "click- through." You may avoid having this information collected by not clicking on URL links in our e-mail communications. We also use a variety of retail analytics tools in our stores for operational and marketing purposes, such as measuring and analyzing traffic patterns. These tools collect data from sensors, including video cameras, smartphone detectors, Wi-Fi networks, or other devices, to evaluate and improve your in-store experience.

Information from Other Sources

We may collect information about you from third-party sources and information that is publicly available. For example, information you submit in a public forum (e.g., a blog, chat room, or social network site) can be read, collected, or used by us and others, and could be used to personalize your experience.

Creative Canvas: How To

Film Los Angeles, CA

Snapshot

This project is a 'How To' reference for Artists. Reference this project profile for tips and tricks as you set up your very own project profile.  

Creative Canvas How To

A project profile on Creative Canvas is the first impression a fan, investor, or producer will have of your project. That's why you'll want to make your project profile look as clean as possible, and provide only the most relevant information, media, and updates. This project profile is a 'How To' that is meant to aid you when setting up your own profile. Follow along for tips and tricks, and never hesitate to ask your Creative Concierge for help as you format your own profile. We're happy to answer your questions so that you may get the most out of Creative Canvas.

Approval Process

Creative Canvas doesn't accept every project - we vet the projects that are submitted to us and ensure that they meet certain quality standards. Before your project is allowed to display publicly on the site, we carefully examine your project profile, budget, timeline, and possibly an example of creative work that is relevant to the project.

Once you've started a project profile, flesh it out with the most relevant details that help others to understand your project and what you hope to accomplish. A Creative Concierge will contact you within 24 hours (Monday - Friday). Your Creative Concierge will be your main point of contact with Creative Canvas.

After reviewing your project profile, your Creative Concierge may ask you for additional production materials, such as your budget and production timeline. He or she may also ask for an example of creative material that serves as proof of work, such as a screenplay/teleplay or script for the stage, a treatment, written music, pitch documents or pitch bible, etc. We understand that this material may be sensitive intellectual property, and we recommend that you make an effort to protect your work if possible. You may register your works with certain agencies, and even encrypt your examples of creative materials before submitting them to Creative Canvas.

Your project profile is not easily discoverable when it is in the middle of the approval process. If you wish to share your project profile with friends or colleagues while it is pending approval, you can do so by providing them with the URL address of your project profile.

Project Videos

Your project profile has one 'Main Project Video,' which resides within the hero area of the project profile. While you don't have to include a Main Project Video, we recommend doing so as a project with a Main Project Video is far more likely to succeed than a project without one.

Your Main Project Video can be just about anything: a simple video of you and your team describing the project that is shot using a mobile phone, a quick animation, an example of your music or podcast work, a teaser trailer, or a scene from your project... the possibilities are endless, so get creative! To include a Main Project Video, upload your video to YouTube or Vimeo first, then navigate to your project settings and paste in the link to your video in the Video Link field (url or embed link). Be sure to check mark either the Vimeo or YouTube box under the Video Link field, else your project video will not load properly.

Sometimes you'll want to include more videos, in which case your project profile's About page is the perfect place to do so. Open your project's settings, navigate to the About Project Section, and click the 'video' button within the text editor to paste in the link of your video. The text editor will only accept videos from Youtube and Vimeo at this time. This results in what you see below:

Main Project Photos

Your project profile has two main project photos: the Cover Photo and the Poster / Album Art Photo.

Cover Photo

Your project profile's Cover Photo is the photo which resides within the hero area of the project profile. It is the main photo of your project and it is used throughout the site, so do your best to craft an image that markets your project best and captures the interest of others. To upload your Cover Photo, navigate to the top of your project's settings. At this time, the site automatically crops your image into a square image. You may crop the image yourself before uploading, or ask your Creative Concierge for assistance in cropping your image before uploading.

Poster / Album Art Photo

Your project profile's Poster or Album Art photo is the photo that is meant to represent your project professionally. The recommended dimensions of a poster is 2400x3600, and the recommended dimension for album art is 800x800. While you may not have a poster or album art image in the very beginning, we recommend that you still create a temporary one, as projects with a poster or album art look more professional. You can quickly (and inexpensively) design a poster or album art cover using a site like Canva.

Uploading Images

All photos that you upload to the site via the text editors are saved and displayed on the Album page of your project profile.

In order for these images to display correctly within Creative Canvas, you must either upload them through the text editor's photo tool (which can be opened by pressing the photo button within the text editor) or by dragging and dropping your photo into the text editor. Your photos will then display at the correct dimensions on the site.

Customizing Photo Galleries

Creative Canvas has many options when it comes to photo placement within a text editor. The three different options are 'Auto Gallery', 'Custom Gallery', and 'Single-Image.' We are working on plugins for these features, but for the time being, you can do the following to create the photo template that you desire (or request help from a Creative Concierge).

Auto Photo Gallery

If you simply upload photos into a text editor on Creative Canvas, then your images will end up in an automized gallery at the very bottom of your project profile, no matter where you placed the image into the text editor. If you wish to override this default behavior and place single images and custom photo galleries wherever you'd like on the project profile, then see the custom photo galleries and single images directions below.

Custom Photo Gallery

Our text editor allows you to override the 'auto photo gallery' and create your very own photo gallery wherever you'd like on your page. To do so, go to your project's settings and navigate to the About Project Section, and drag and drop your photos into the text editor where you would like them to go. Then enter HTML mode within the text editor and place your photos in-between div tags with a class of "custom-gallery". Second, give each photo a class of "ignore". Notice: Your image tags must be surrounded by paragraph tags.

<div class="custom-gallery">
    <p><img class="ignore" src="..."></p>
</div>

Using the code above results in a gallery like this one:

Single Images

If you don't want a photo gallery, you can inject a single images onto your page instead. To inject only one photo, you may drag and drop the photo wherever you desire in the text editor, enter HTML mode within the text editor, and include the "single-image" class to the photo's image tag:

    <p><img class="single-image" src="..."></p>

Notice: Your image tags must be surrounded by paragraph tags, and nothing other than paragraph tags! The following is a result of using the code above:



Third Party Additions

Creative Canvas is tirelessly adding features that allow artists to embed many more third party items onto their project profiles. A good example of this includes the 'SoundCloud' Music Player Embed. An example of this player is below. Check back frequently as we add more third party embed options!
