Biography Block: Format headshot and biography

The Biography block will be pre-populated with any defaults you have added in your Reel Settings. But you can override/save new defaults for both the headshot and biography text, or adjust the section layout while in the Reel Builder.

This article includes:

Choose your layout

You can change the layout of your biography text and headshot, or hide your headshot completely by choosing an option in the  Layout dropdown menu above your headshot in the reel builder.

Set section title

The title for this block defaults to "Biography," but you can edit this to say anything you want.

PRO TIP: Depending on what information you include in your biography text, some good examples of section titles are: About me, Credits, and Contact Info.

Headshot

The image in this section will default to the headshot image you uploaded to your Reel Settings ▸ Design Defaults. You will see either a gray or orange alert box letting you know if a default image has been uploaded, and if it's currently being used in the reel.

You can override your headshot on a per reel basis by checking the  Override default headshot box. Once this box is checked the Replace Image button will appear below the image and you can upload/choose a new image in the image browser. 

You can also completely hide your headshot from your reel. Please see the "Choose your layout" section above for more details. 

Set your biography text

The text in this section will default to anything you’ve saved in your  Reel Settings ▸ Personal Information. You will see either a gray or orange alert box letting you know if a default biography has been saved, and if it's currently being used in the reel.

You can override your biography text on a per reel basis by checking the Override default biography box. Once this box is checked the text box will become editable and you can enter and format a new biography. 

Show/hide contact info

Below the biography text box, there is a setting to show or hide your contact info. Leaving this box will display a duplicate of any contact info entered in the Contact Info block (top of reel) below your biography text. To hide this info at the bottom of your reel, select the “Hide contact info” box.

PRO TIP: To show a different version of your contact info (from the Contact Info block) under your biography, select the “Hide contact info” box and enter your modified contact details directly below your bio in the biography text box.
