Cahootify is a software platform with the mission to empower and further the careers of independent producers, filmmakers and actors. Think of it as a cross between LinkedIn and IMDb.
Cahootify acts as your professional industry calling card with tools to help you create an impressive online portfolio - complete with showreel, gallery showcase and biography. More cost-effective than a website, insanely easy to manage, great-looking and FREE. (We'll be offering deeper paid services in time but we'll never charge you for anything you're already using - a good reason to get in now!) Once you have a personal profile, you can also create and "represent" a brand or company profile.
Cahootify also allows you to advertise or express interest in requirements for upcoming projects - whether for cast or crew, paid or collab/partnership. And we have a suite of advanced tools around contact management, opportunity management, project group discussion and community hubs.
One of the niftiest things about your profile on Cahootify is that if you've worked on a project that someone else has already added, you can simply join it; then you can still tailor your version in any way you wish. Maximum efficiency combined with complete individuality - pretty good, huh? (It works especially well if you get together with others with whom you've worked on multiple projects.)
Everything currently available is free and always will be. (We may introduce a limit on portfolio size at some point but we'll always "grandfather in" existing members - so if it's free for you now it will remain free.)
Our plan is to eventually charge a modest subscription for premium features and priority access to high-value opportunities.
We have a blog containing a gently increasing number of help articles. We hope you find them useful - any feedback most welcome.
