A host of new services have been added to the Radar Music Creatives platform, making the filmmakers, designers and photographers that have portfolios on the platform more easily accessible to content commissioners. 

Creatives can also sign up cost free, and be seen by labels, managers and self-releasing artists in the new service, which includes making profiles browsable to all commissioners. Creatives can also be added to commissioners' lists, and be contacted directly by commissioners directly via the platform. Commissioners can then send briefs privately to selected creatives.

The services, which have been tested over the past year, represent a new stage in sophistication and usability of Radar, which has made the commissioning of low budget videos possible to all in the music industry over the past ten years. Notable commissions via Alt J's Breeze Blocks (the band's best performing video , currently standing at 134+ million views on YouTube) and UK Music Video Award winning Take Me Dancing by Will Joseph Cook. Radar is now used to create music videos, album art, band photography and other visual content for music marketing campaigns.

Caroline Bottomley, founder of Radar, says “It’s a bit of a revolution for commissioners and creatives. Music marketers told us what we were offering (promoting their briefs to Radar creatives) wasn’t always the solution they were looking for - often they want to research their own options, or start more private conversations with selected creatives. It’s great to know that our creatives will be seen by leading content commissioners via our new and improved service.”

"We aim to maintain Radar's position as the best place worldwide to source up and coming creative talent. Our renewed dedication to scouting creative talent and signing them exclusively to our platform helps underline that position."
