Spidvid.com launches its platform to provide an open web-powered collaborative video production model

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 25, 2009) - Spidvid provides the social framework needed so that individuals can connect to form production teams, collaborate on video projects together, distribute the content, and give credit and compensation back to each member involved.

"Back in early 2008 I saw a video which had an entertaining animated effect in it" recalls founder Jeremy Campbell. "All the video creator did was include a quick "special thanks to animator name" at the end of the video, which I felt wasn't enough credit based on the services offered. I did more research to find many more similar examples so I knew that this collaborative relationship was very beneficial to the creators. I saw huge future potential in developing a platform which could better connect these individuals together, compensate all individuals involved on production teams, and to accomplish this on a large scale."

It used to be true that only the large powerful entertainment studios were capable of creating quality content that a large audience could enjoy. This is no longer the case as the economics and tools available to the masses have levelled the playing field for virtually anyone with an idea, some talent, the ability to connect with individuals to form a production team, and passion to gain attention on a global scale.

Spidvid is now in private beta and site access is through invite only. Visit Spidvid.com, click "Sign Up", provide your email address to get added to our waiting list, and become part of our production community.
