Like many parents, I have a ton of video footage of my kids. And when I show them to my friends and co-workers, they politely watch them. But they don’t get excited unless they see the footage I personally edited (see videos on this page). I’m lucky I have the skill to edit my own video. But many parents don’t. That’s when the upcoming VidMob app comes in handy. The app connects video content creators with video editors in a real-time, bid-based marketplace. The app has not been released yet, but it looks easy to use in the demo I saw last week at the TNT Portland event at the Westin Hotel. Just pick your favorite clips on your phone and then select a video editor with the app.
The mobile app has not been launched yet, but soon it will be available for the iPhone and Android devices. If you want to be one of the first to know when the app is available, head over to the VidMob website and enter your email address.
According to the company, VidMob is here to rescue abandoned media, a.k.a. all those videos collecting digital dust on the billions of smart phones around the world. The company believes this content deserve to become something special, and there’s a huge number of underutilized editors that can make it happen. With the VidMob app, video editors are matched with diverse app users from around the globe. In the end, users untapped content are transformed into stunning, professional, share-worthy videos.
VidMob users upload media directly from their phone’s camera roll or from the cloud. After a user creates a new project, editors will bid on that job in the marketplace. Once the user selects a winning bid, the editor can download the media straight from the Edit Suite, our editors-only site. Using VidMob’s messaging tools to communicate with the user, the editor will construct a series of cuts ultimately resulting in a unique, personalized video.
BTW, only you and your chosen video editor will have access to your project files during the editing process. Once you have accepted your editor’s final draft, it’s 100% up to you if you want to submit the video to the MobFeed and make it public.
Note: all the videos were created from a point ans shoot camera. Some of the videos were created before HD was readily available on cameras. Note: all the videos were created from a point ans shoot camera. Some of the videos were created before HD was readily available on cameras.
