The Rise of Crowdsourcing and Project Collaboration in Video and Why it Matters

Every day, the world is becoming more connected.Through the use of smartphones, we are able to do things never before possible. Video production is no different. Tools for quality content and collaboration are here to stay. Companies like Apple, GoPro, WeTransfer, and DropBox are leading the way for new ideas and startups to grow from.

Crowdsourcing and project collaboration is creating opportunities for people to share visual content with like-minded people to create dynamic, emotionally engaged videos. (See video below)

As technology becomes smaller and smarter, we are becoming more mobile and adverse in the way we approach video production. The ease and quality in video is also improving. By combining quality, crowdsourcing and collaboration, we have entered into an area of production rarely seen before.

Innovative audiences are better engaging themselves to capture a variety of creative and interesting angles. For example, wedding / reception videos are filled with emotionally connected close ups of family, friends and the bride and groom. Festival organizers now have audiences filming themselves to allow great cuts from the band. Businesses are also working on project collaboration and team training videos. The same opportunities also apply to many other areas including travel, real estate, sports, arts, culture, and non profit.

The system is easy. Shoot what you want, filter out the bad shots and transfer the content. Video editors will tag and database your clips with keywords and work collaboratively with the client to edit an amazing video for you to love and share.
