Syncronising all our photos and videos from an event or location in one place… A PreVU
How often have you seen hundreds of people all holding their phones up at an event to film or to take photos? Yet you never get to see the results…
Whether it’s a small party, a large wedding or a huge festival, we rarely get to see the majority of amazing pictures or videos other people have taken, because they’ll be stuck on their devices and left there to gather digital dust.
For example, we are not going to be connected with this year’s 250,000 V Festival goers on Instagram or Twitter, but we’d still like to see their front row pics of Bieber and watch the video as thousands sing-a-long with Rick Astley to Never Gonna Give You Up.
We want to make it easy to get all of their photos and videos into one place. Afterall, how many of those 250,000 people will you have connected with… [Even if we have 200 followers on Instagram, and they’re all at V Festival, that’s less than 0.06% of partygoers!]
What does PreVU do?
The PreVU app will allow an event organiser to create an official page and everyone attending can check in and automatically synchronise their photos and videos to that prevu page, and if you can’t be there, follow the page and watch the action happen.
How do I benefit…
By automating uploads to dedicated PreVU pages we can unleash millions of photos and videos that are trapped on devices, working independently or in conjunction with your private social networks.
With PreVU everyone now gets access to all those amazing pictures and videos that usually get lost.
Users can contribute before, during and after an event – and remain connected to the media that they weren’t ever likely to see.
Better still, you don’t have to worry about posting them to all your social networks as you go, PreVU will take care of it for you automatically if you want.
A Pain saved:
There is no wasted time hashtagging every picture, sorting out stuff you want to share or frustration from having to transfer to others. You multimedia appears alongside everyone elses content from the same event, so you won’t even have to ask to see it.
Privacy in mind…
Of course not everything has to be shared, and PreVU wants to protect people’s privacy.
Don’t feel like sharing?… Turn on ‘privacy mode’ and keep on snapping. Those videos and pics will only appear in your timeline from the event.
What we hope to achieve with this campaign
- Changing the world is always a nice idea, and we believe this is the first step to changing the way you share and collaborate.
- We are full of great ideas, but this is an opportunity for us to validate what features to focus on. By starting with organising your multimedia we hope to one day help you with how you play, work and learn.
- Build something that our users will love
What we have done:
- Begun prototyping in Sketch, Illustrator and Invision.
- Run google ventures style workshops to plan where to start.
- Been offered investment and support by a leading University.
- Started working with event organisers and attendees to evolve this idea towards their dream app.
- We came third at Startup Weekend Manchester.
