Storyhunter, the global platform empowering creators and brands to tell their boldest stories, announced a transformative rebrand to ‘Glimmer’ that reflects its commitment to supporting creators and brands in the fast-growing creator economy. 

For the past 11 years, Storyhunter has been a pioneering force in film and video production, bringing the global creator community together through long-lasting creative partnerships with Fortune 500, brands and agencies globally. 

In conjunction with the rebrand, Glimmer is announcing a massive expansion into more than 60+ creative services, including 3D animation, creative direction, copywriting, drone videography, full-service production, and more. Glimmer is also announcing the launch of Glimmer Black, its new platform that is the first all-in-one agile, creative production platform for enterprises. Glimmer Black features dynamic, new visual creator portfolios directly connecting to its robust global marketplace and an advanced search experience for finding the right creator for any project. It offers a new, faster payout option for creators worldwide to get paid within three 3 days of completing a project.

“We are unleashing the potential of creators worldwide by showcasing their capabilities and making it simple for them to connect to some of the most amazing projects on the planet. We have proven that we can change how filmmakers and journalists get hired and paid. Now, we will scale that impact across many other creative services so that more creators can focus only on doing the work they love,” says founder and CEO Jaron Gilinsky. “We have a new identity, representing hope for creators and the creator economy. We envision a limitless world for creators, and in this new era of Glimmer, we will continue to advocate for the rights of creators everywhere to create freely and fearlessly – leaving our mark on the evolving creator economy for the benefit of both people and planet.”

For brands, agencies, and the entertainment sector, Glimmer is expanding into full studio production services, 3D, and long-form original content. Glimmer’s new Glimmer Black platform also includes upgraded technology built to provide enterprises and agencies with a suite of collaboration and pricing tools developed from the insights of a data set of more than 70,000 unique creative media projects.

“Glimmer Black is the only end-to-end full-service platform for brands and agencies to build and leverage an agile, creative workforce,” says Jamie Elden, Glimmer’s global chief revenue officer. “Our platform is home to a vetted talent marketplace of more than 50,000+ creators partnered with the world’s leading brands and agencies who rely on Glimmer Black to unify procurement, production budgets, team collaboration, project management, production management, contracts, accounting, and analytics.
