A year ago we graduated film school. As a film school graduate life basically smiles at you. You can work wherever you want, bars, restaurants, pizza delivery, you name it. ;)
And that was where we worked, until we decided that enough is enough.
If so many businesses need videos, and so many film grads like us need a job - why not connect them all and make everyone happy.
That was when we started this amazing adventure called Veed.me.
From the press:
USA TODAY: " As unemployment rates push 10% for recent college graduates who studied the arts, this start-up fills an important niche...Although Veed.me is in the "alpha" stage, which refers to early development and testing, it may prevent future artists from starving..."
All My Faves: "From small to large businesses Veedme caters to anyone in need of video ad production. They leave no room for mediocrity... Veedme has pre-screened numerous filmmakers proving the quality of the product they offer.."
Our goal is pretty simple, make video ads affordable to all kinds of businesses and at the same time stop filmmakers from starving...
We already have hundreds of filmmakers who were happy to finally increase their income by doing what they love while on the other end of the marketplace we have lots of awesome clients who got great videos through Veed.me.
Here's a short mashup of some of the videos created through Veed.me:
Why we are here?
Well, to be honest, Israel, where we are coming from is a Start-up nation and it's the best place that we (first timers) could ask for to start our young company. Having said that, we have a dream and in that dream we are leaving our comfort zone of friends and family, we take a very big breath and we are going for the home run, we are going for the one place on earth that can make our dream happen, making Veed.me, our baby, a big and successful company that will change the way videos are made today. Staying in Israel, leaves us away from our target market and dramatically slows our progress.
This October we are flying to San Francisco. We believe that it has the best eco-system for a company like us and that it's the best place to bring our dream to life and make it count.
What we have?
1. Loads of passion, motivation, drive and any other related words!
2. Filmmaking skills and lots of creative ideas that will be used to reward your great contributions
3. People and companies who really want to meet us in the Bay Area.
4. Money - we have $5,000 left.
What we need more money for?
We need money in order to finance the super expensive trip to San Francisco, the flights, accommodation for 3 months and some spaghettios..
We are obviously, not expecting DONATIONS! We want to keep bootstrapping by creating videos for great clients and great people and keep letting our community work through our marketplace.
That's why, we will create different kinds of videos at different budget levels for the awesome, loved and amazing people that will contribute and help Veed.me disrupt the way videos are being created, and make them finally affordable to all the businesses out there.
Here are videos that were all created by us, Veed.me co-founders...
