The problem + Our solution
In spite of the plethora of video apps, the average user still finds it difficult to produce good quality videos.
Vidoos mission is to make simple footage strikingly effective.
But there is a problem and weve all had friends whove faced it, or faced it ourselves. All to often only to lose the battle.
The problem is that were running a mid 20th century era immigration technology. A technology which assumes that productive people have advanced degrees and work for big established companies. A system that creates bureaucratic hurdles and huge costs for the few that get sponsored by big businesses. And which unfortunately provides no mechanism whatsoever for founders and entrepreneurs who wish to come here and test our their ideas.
In fact:America's immigration system has never been well run What fraction of the smart people who want to come to America can even get in? I doubt even half. Which means if you made a competing technology hub that let in all smart people, you'd immediately get more than half the world's top talent, for free.
But dont take my word for it these are Paul Grahams of Y combinators words.
Companies, investors, and great minds from around the world face this problem every day. And all efforts to tackle the problem head on politically have thus far failed1

Competition, cont.The majority of video apps are social platforms, we are one of the few focusing on video quality. As a result, their editing techniques are homogeneous and unimpressive. Vine: mostly for pros, not average usersSocialCam: SocialCam videos are not made with SocialCam, and the most popular channel on SocialCam is Best of YouTube
