Seenit is an app and platform which helps brands and organisations co-create video with employees fans journalists and experts from around the world. It's a tool which makes it easy to direct and collect video from smartphones by setting tasks within the app; the target 'crew' follow the instructions and upload video. The content arrives to a central private online studio where films can be quickly edited and distributed out to social media.
It is a way for organisations to engage with the people who are most passionate about the brand and empower them to be the content creators.
Seenit was founded in the start of Jan 2014 by Emily Forbes and Max Werner having been accepted to the Collider13 accelerator programme. Emily's background is film having worked at Working Title and Partizan before deciding to move to Cape Town to work for a small production company producing 'Making Of' and 'Behind the Scenes' films for the 21 Icons project. It was whilst trying to create her own film the idea behind Seenit all came about. Max is a developer who has spent the last 10 years building products for the likes of Stella McCartney and Google.
