We believe that this video revolution should be available and accessible to all, and that’s why we built NYVS.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 19, 2010
NYVS announced today that it has officially launched the world’s premier online film school, nyvs.com. The company officially leaves its beta phase with this announcement and is now available across the globe to anyone interested in learning how to make high quality film and video – at a fraction of the cost of traditional film schools.
NYVS was created and incubated by a team of expert film educators and successful media entrepreneurs. “We are in the midst of a global transition from a text-based society to a video-based society,” said NYVS Co-founder and Chairman Michael Rosenblum. “We believe that this video revolution should be available and accessible to all, and that’s why we built NYVS.”
Michael Rosenblum previously worked with former Vice President Al Gore to help launch Current TV, a cable network with a similar viewpoint on democratizing video production and distribution. In addition Mr. Rosenblum has spent over a decade working with clients such as the BBC, The Travel Channel, Guardian Media, and many others, running in-person training seminars for thousands of employees and consumers interested in learning how to improve the quality of their work.
“In many ways, the launch of NYVS is the culmination of two decades of research and development across the globe,” said Mr. Rosenblum. “In the world of tomorrow, being ‘video illiterate’ will be just as hampering as being unable to read and write today. Whether you want to sell your house, get a job, meet someone online, excel in school, or get a promotion, it will all be done in video. NYVS is designed to help with all of this.”
While new courses are continuously added to the website, NYVS.com already offers hundreds of online tutorials and exercises, allowing users to learn at their own pace. Additionally, the website’s robust community offers daily blog posts from expert videographers and members, contests, marketplace opportunities, critiques and much more.
“With over 90% of global IP traffic expected to be video by 2014, we anticipated there would be demand for an affordable, engaging, and social experience that helps people improve the quality of their videos,” said Matthew Blosl, President and COO of NYVS. “When people from over 40 countries subscribed to NYVS during the beta phase alone, it just confirmed our suspicion that there is a large and rapidly growing audience of people looking to create great video. Our goal is to empower a generation of people who want to tell stories through video, and in doing so, help improve the overall quality of video on the web.”
NYVS is the world’s premier online film school. Headquartered in New York, the company has developed a pioneering social learning architecture and layered on hundreds of video courses on topics such as, equipment selection, video shooting, storytelling, video editing and video production. The company’s website allows users to interact with NYVS instructors and with each other through groups, forums, and critiques to create a more personalized and rich learning experience. NYVS is a great alternative to traditional film schools for those looking to make a career as a video professional or anyone simply interested in learning how to make great videos. As video increasingly becomes the dominant form of communication, NYVS provides the tools to help people from all cultural and economic backgrounds across the world join the video revolution.
