Like so many people I know, I had enormous quantities of little video clips and photos scattered between my Camera Roll and my cloud accounts, and no real way to turn them into quality content. The team at VidMob is trying to solve this problem.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 19, 2015
VidMob officially launched today on the Apple App Store as the first app marketplace for getting professionally edited videos. Understanding how much media people capture on their smartphones and GoPros, and how difficult it is to turn that raw media into something of quality, VidMob is looking to break that trend. Now with VidMob, it is amazingly easy and affordable to transform those raw video clips and photos into shareable memories, adventures, stories, and more—even digital gifts and holiday cards. The app is also perfect for business owners looking for a cost-effective way to generate the quality video content needed to fill their social media channels.
Using the VidMob app, individuals create projects by simply selecting from the videos and photos on their smartphone. Users can also select photos and videos they have stored on a range of supported cloud services or invite friends with relevant media to add their photos or clips. The app then presents the user with a wide array of experienced video editors, along with samples of their work and customer reviews, in order to help people find the perfect match. VidMob notifies the user when their draft is ready and allows them to chat in real-time with their editor—even provide notes, and more. If the user loves the latest draft, one simply accepts the work and instantly the project is done.
“VidMob was born from personal pain,” said Alex Collmer, the company’s Founder and CEO. “Like so many people I know, I had enormous quantities of little video clips and photos scattered between my Camera Roll and my cloud accounts, and no real way to turn them into quality content. And I knew that tens of millions of businesses were also experiencing the same problem—how to take that raw media and affordably create the daily video content that their Facebook and Twitter channels now demand. The team at VidMob is trying to solve this problem.”
VidMob has developed relationships with a wide number of film schools, has relationships with a number of leading media companies, and received an investment from the venture arm of Mother New York, one of the largest independent advertising agencies in the world. And while the app is only just launching today, thousands of editors have already created full profiles in their marketplace. Said Collmer, “One of our foremost focuses has been to create a positive force for employment in the editor community. From the beginning, we have tried to build a platform that was designed for editors, by editors.”
