Vimazing Press Release
Vimazing – 500px for filmmakers
In less than a month in the web will appear a new social network for filmmakers: camera operators, editors and video lovers. Vimazing is a portal for fans of film art, who will be able to present their work and rate gathered in one place movies of the best video makers from all around the world.
Nowadays there is more and more phenomenal video productions filmed professionally or by video enthusiasts who shoot with a DSLR. But the big problem of these creative filmmakers is the fact that the results of their work, uploaded to Youtube or Vimeo, are underestimated because they are displayed next to thousands of other films like "mentos + coca cola", clips with funny animals, corporate videos and commercials.
Vimazing can solve this problem. ˝Only Amazing Videos” is the idea of the portal that refers to the popular photo-ranking communities for professional photographers, such as 500px, Pixoto or 1x. Vimazing users can publish their work and make their own film portfolio which will give them the opportunity to reach a wider circle of receivers and clients.
Use of this website will be very simple. All you need to do is to create a free account, paste a link to a clip which already exists in the network and assign it to the appropriate category. Users of Vimazing will also be able to evaluate all videos of other users, which will be grouped into categories and rankings, or find out what equipment was used to film them. Here are some examples: "Show me top rated videos from the past month in the category Timelapse", "Apply search filter showing films made in your region" or "Contact the creator whose work has made an impression on you and establish the eventual cooperation."
The important thing is that this site is not a competition for Vimeo or Youtube, but some kind of "supplement". Vimazing founders realize that competing with market leaders would be doomed to failure.
Creators of the project started their work in November 2013. They are passionate about visual arts and their mission is to make it possible for a wider audience to see more fantastically executed videos. It is worth mentioning that Vimazing is not sponsored by any commercial brand, which guarantees its absolute independence from any influence or pressure forms on the presented content.
At http://www.vimazing.com it is already possible to see the teaser of the project where you can leave your email address to be informed as soon as it’s launched. The full Vimazing website will be available online within the next month.
