Bringing people together in order to create quality online video as a team. Now that’s a goal I can support!
A new friend of mine from Canada named Jeremy Campbell has created a marvelous new website called SpidVid to do just that. Whatever your personal interest in online video production, chances are high you can benefit from Spidvid.
The idea first came to him about three years ago. Jeremy saw incredible potential with online video but was a touch disappointed by the low caliber videos flooding You Tube. I can relate!
Jeremy decided his mission in life was to help raise the bar but he didn’t want to open up “just another small production studio.” Again, I can totally relate!
With online video being such a HUGE niche, Jeremy knew he needed to be unique and have something mighty powerful if he was going to stand a snowball’s chance in hell of competing.
Being a follower of Seth Godin, Jeremy read a lot about the power of connecting people and facilitating collaboration.
After lots of brainstorming, and a year of research and development, all this morphed into Spidvid, a site designed to bring people together to create online video content.
If you are a video professional who can contribute to the production, spidvid is a site where you could find some projects to help with.
If you are wanting to create a video but need to find a team to help you put it all together, then Spidvid is where you could find the wide a variety of folks, from actors to directors, writers, videographers, or editors, etc., etc., to help you.
One concept Jeremy hopes to emphasize with spidvid is the value of joint ownership to match joint effort. He’s hoping people will embrace the idea of collaborating on projects with the payoff being joint ownership in the finished project, instead of just charging a standard day or hourly rate.
He told me in our telephone interview that his strong belief in the power of like-minded people working together to accomplish what might be too daunting to tackle alone was what inspired that idea for that business model. Jeremy is positive such a model could benefit all collaborators and is one of his main concepts behind SpidVid.
It certainly seems logical to me that more video projects will make it from the idea stage to the finished product stage if people have simple ways to pool their talents and resources. No one can do it all alone! The older (and hopefully wiser) I get, the more I realize that important fact.
I wish Jeremy much success with Spidvid. It’s a marvelous concept so I am happy to share the word. Spidvid is free to join and this post has nothing to do with any affiliate arrangement, it’s truly something I think my readers can benefit from.
Thanks for reading VPT!
