Available today, the new mobile app, InVidMe, has completely disrupted the original content and video space with its innovative platform that allows users to create interactive videos by choosing a character or TV show, a phrase or episode, and recording a video answer. The app boasts proprietary video technology and algorithms that allow users to seem as if they are talking to a famous character. By providing a way to automatically perform video editing behind the scenes with the powerful engine built by the team of developers, members don’t have to do anything more than record a video. This leaves the difficult and time consuming task of video editing in the hands of the platform.
“Being a filmmaker, I noticed there wasn’t really a way to interact with characters on an app.” said CEO and Cofounder of InVidMe, Randy Levan. “Snapchat, Instagram, TikTok and the other video apps are fun and all, but the content is one directional without much interaction.” One of the advantages that people get by using InVidMe is the ability to show off their acting skills, humor, or creativity. By engaging with famous or fun characters such as Batdad, Albert Einstein, Donald Trump or Barack Obama, or even a Zombie and a Unicorn, users can finally be creative in an interactive way and let others watch their creations.
In terms of safety, if a user finds a video offensive, there is a strict flagging system in place with a sophisticated administration panel and moderation system built on the backend. “The safety and protection of our members’ privacy is of the utmost importance.” said COO and Cofounder of InVidMe, Jason Sherman. “We have built a platform that is not only fun and engaging, but super secure as well.” People can choose between characters and TV shows, and then record the episode in a new style video interface. The original TV shows include comedy, news, and movie auditions. Sports, current events, a show featuring Batdad, a show for superhero fans and more are on the way.
“It’s been challenging for me to find a platform that I could use along with my kids,” said member Devon Logan. “Now I can weigh in on important news or political topics while my kids interact with fun animated characters.”
In a space where original content is king, InVidMe comes in at the right time. With billions of dollars being spent on original content by Netflix, Amazon, iTunes, Hulu, HBO and other networks, InVidMe joins the ranks with a different approach: the ability for viewers to also be a part of the show.
InVidMe was built by a phenomenal team of entrepreneurs including CEO and Cofounder, Randy Levan, COO and Cofounder, Wharton instructor and serial entrepreneur Jason Sherman, CTO Anri Bolon, Blake Wilson a.k.a. Batdad, and a team of full stack developers. The app is currently available on the Apple App store, and the Google Play marketplace.
