As an experienced tech partner, Linkup partnered with a client and, from scratch, created WeVidIt, a TV and film marketplace connecting TV show creators and filmmakers with investors.
The platform is now up and running, and big-name producers and directors like Kip Konwiser and Joshua Webber, as well as other users, are already publishing their works. The client is currently attracting Netflix, Universal, Lionsgate, Amazon Studio, and other prominent film production companies to take advantage of the audience big data WeVidIt provides. Product investors have also been highly impressed with the solution provided.
Our client, with over a decade of experience managing multibillion-dollar portfolios at a Wall Street hedge fund, decided to leverage his deep expertise in Data Science and investing to innovate in the film industry. He founded WeVidIt, aiming to address a critical gap he identified through his extensive research in filmmaking. Major film companies were struggling to access reliable data on audience reactions, which is essential for predicting a film's success. Moreover, he noticed that many talented authors, directors, and actors with promising ideas remained unnoticed by the public.
Recognizing these challenges, the client envisioned a pitching platform that would not only connect creators and investors but also provide detailed user analytics and project rankings to both companies and regular users. He approached Linkup Studio with this broad product idea. Our task was to design and develop a comprehensive web and mobile UX/UI for the platform, in collaboration with the client's backend team, while ensuring compliance with the strict US government regulations for investment platforms.
Our team at Linkup Studio dedicated itself to transforming the WeVidIt platform into a user-friendly and efficient space for filmmakers and investors:
