Vloggi is the first collaborative video production platform. Our tools make it easy for anyone to source,
brand and use unique video content created by their colleagues, community or customers.
Vloggi's mission is to democratise video production by combining the automation of video editing automation with the crowdsourcing of footage capture. With over two billion smartphone users globally possessing a high definition video camera, we have the ability to turn half the world into videographers.
Currently, only 15% of small companies use video in their marketing, due to its cost and complexity. Video production is a slow, linear process that can cost tens of thousands of dollars and take many weeks. Our system combines smart video tech, micropayments and artificial intelligence in a decentralised platform that reduces video cost by 90% and allows real-time dynamic production. Small businesses and social groups can add video content to their marketing mix for the furst time.
We want to connect the people with great video clips on their phones with the people who want to combine these clips together into longer videos. This could be travel companions creating a trip highlights video, a brand crowdsourcing a buzz reel or a company creating a multi-location corporate video.

Vloggi works by allowing communities to launch collaborative video productions and source footage from
within their community members. When you want to create video content on very specific locations, topics
or themes, the best people to film for you are not professional video production studios, who require a
detailed brief, but the passionate fans. Vloggi delivers you footage and captions from people who love the
production - like real travelers, charity workers, delegates, bloggers, and your colleagues.
Vloggi® is the home of fanmade films™. Vloggi combines automated video
production with the crowdsourcing technology to massively reduce video content production costs. This
opens video production up to anyone needing authentic video from small community groups to the largest
Vloggi is a video production platform for teams. Start by creating a Vloggi project for your team and then invite co-workers, friends or your community to contribute video. Here you write a brief for your contributors to follow. You can add a prize to incentivize them, add terms and conditions or leave the brief open. As content is contributed, you will see the project grow in real time.
Every project has its unique code, which you share with your video collaborators. Projects can be open to all or restricted to your closed group. Anyone with a smartphone can then upload video clips, 10 seconds at a time, into your production.
Once you have some good clips contributed, combine clips into episodes of your video blog or one-off video playlists using our drag and drop video assembler.The system is fully geolocated, meaning you'll never have to guess the location of a video again.
Use our Theme Designer tool to apply your branding elements to the finished video for you to download and use across your social media channels.
See the three simple steps to creating your first Vloggi collaborative videos here.
Because video is pure Google juice!. Video massively increased your search engine
optimisation, but it’s still quite rare. Facebook, LinkedIn, Google and all other online marketing
channels now prioritise video content over all others. Video engagement is twice as high as images, which
is in turn ten times higher than text. The fact that you are reading this places you in a different
demographic to much of the world’s media consumers, who favour stackable chunks of video content.
But video has been out of the reach of smaller organizations. In fact, while 95% of large organizations use video in their marketing, only 15% of small enterprises do so. Most businesses are now scrambling to re-create all their textual assets into photos, with the prospect of doing so again with videos the next race in town. By using their custsomers' own footage and captions, it is a chance to rapidly build a video library that is both afforable and authentic.
Vloggi is a collaborative video production platform. So anywhere where you need to create video content and have an engaged community, you can use our tools to capture and brand authentic video content.
Anyone can create a Vloggi project which can then be promoted through your usual promotion channels. For a small business, this could be as simple as a poster, whereas for a large organisation, harnessing social media channels and websites may be more effective.
You can use the video clips as soon as the first entry comes in, on its own, complete with caption. Then merge with other Vloggis to create an endless mosaic of unique video content.
You can also create a brand template for each brand, campaign or sub-brand you have, so the videos will have consistent branding elements.
Vloggi is free for small teams to use. If your community has fewer than 10 members, our platform will
allow you to make up to three minutes of formatted video compilations every month on our Casual tier.
For larger teams needing to collaborate on video productions, we have a tiered subscription model. You can find details on the inclusions and benefits on our pricing page.
We offer solutions for small, medium and enterprise customers at a fraction of the cost of traditional video production.
You can design your own video template or get the Vloggi team to animate your logo and design your branded video template from your existing website or brochure branding elements.
If you opt to make your video contributions available for licensing, they will be available in the
Vloggi Library. Vloggi will then market the video content
on your behalf and split the royalties with you.
Every time a license is purchased, we split the royalties with the creator, with a minumum of 50 percent being paid to the creator. The Vloggi rates of pay can be found here. Payment is available via Paypal and can be requested on both the app and the My account page of the Vloggi Studio platform.
Our pricing is tiered depening on how the customer uses the video content, from standard definition web video up to clean footage in high definition. In short, the better the Vloggi, the more chance it is to be subsequently re-used.
You do not make videos for us, you make them for yourself or your community. Vloggi is a software platform
that enables group video production. But first step to contributing video is to find a production relevant
to your interests or locality.
You may have been sent a project code from your friends, family or even a brand or community group to which you have an interest. The project owner sets the brief and possibly adds a prize for the best entries. Follow the URL sent to you by the project owner to start contributing video clips.
No. Although video bloggers and influencers are core users of our technology in order to enable them to
work quicker and smarter, anyone with a smartphone can contribute video clips. Today's high definition
cameras in phones produce awesome video every time, even in low light.
Anyone can start a project to collaborate with co-workers, club members or community members. Anyone can then merge the best videos together to create finished video compilations.
Vloggi is an easy user-generate content UGC video platform coupled with a powerful video story assembler tool. Our system uses a whole range of smart video technology to produce consistent stable and sharp 10-second video blogs. Our smart browser-based video maker compiles, brands and formats video stories for project owners. The Vloggi system automatically combines a series of 10-second video clips together into a montage. No editing is required to make short films that can be downloaded or shared on social media.
So Vloggi is open to anyone who needs quick, easy and affordable video content.
Perfect stackable content length.
Each Vloggi is a building block towards longer pieces of video content. However, each 10-second Vloggi is also a self-contained microvlog that can be used as it is on social media platforms.
Our system outputs animated GIFs, which is the emerging video format of choice for messaging apps, but doesn’t work longer than 10 seconds at high quality.
Also, for upload purposes our technology uses clever compression techniques as it leaves the phone, which also work better at 10 seconds..
Yes. For iPhone users
head to the Apple App Store to download the Vloggi app.
The app creates 10-second microvlogs on the fly, with no editing required. Simply point and shoot some
action, change angle and repeat. Add a quick caption to turn it from a video into a video blog and voilà,
seconds later a fully produced mini video blog will be published. Then just merge these together using the
app or online to create longer videos by theme, location or whatever.
However, we do also allow the uploding of video footage from any device, which can then be captioned and geolocated manually. Upload your video clips here from your phone or other device.
We come from the tourism industry and it was the travel industry’s lack of video content was the first problem we solved. Any industry for which location is the product has an added difficulty in creating video content, because location filming costs can blow holes in video budgets. We also see travel as a core vertical, as evidenced in Instagram content. However, we are industry-agnostic and will work with any industry vertical.
You can. The world we inhabit is that of micro-influencers, rather than macro influencers
or mega influencers. So ordinary people in the right place and right time with a smartphone and a desire
to give back to their community and perhaps make some money along the way if their clips are re-used. We
work with agencies, but really we are about enabling our customers to reach their existing communities
through a crowdsourced video production platform.
Our vision is to create an ecosystem where communities create their own video content for their own purposes, with the possibility to earn a secondary motivator. It is a fair and transparent evolution of the social influencer model.
Vloggi is a modular video production platform. Drag the Vloggi you like onto the Create Playlist box to start a new playlist. Then give it a title, add more and rearrange. Once you're happy, press publish to finalise the video. Then embed in your blog for free, or download the finished file for use on YouTube, Facebook or Instagram.
Not really. The idea behind Vloggi is collaboration. Either the project owner or contributors are all working towards the final piece of content. It's for group video creation. Each project needs at least two contribitors, so invite a friend to join your project if you start a new one.
At the moment the app is only available in Apple iOs. There will be an cross-platform version coming soon.In the meantime, those with Android devices can upload your video files here.
Yes. Vloggi dramatically speed up your production time if already have a video blog. Use our video uploader tool to get your existing video files into our system ten seconds at a time and simply add a caption and location. Then drag and drop to merge together into a professional looking video program via our template designer.
No, you won't need to worry about editing. Our platform captures, edits and captions the entire film. Our
proprietary video assembly tool then merges together your clips to make longer video files with no editing
We have developed a whole load of features into the video upload process to make the quality consistent, it will still be variable and subjective. But our model works like a dynamic stock video services that allows users to self-service and only select the good stuff. We have also built in a system of content rating tools that work through both human and artificial intelligence to grade the content.
Once video clips are assembled together into playlists or episodes, the project owners can apply their own video template to style the content. Templates contain logos, transitions, video effects and intro sequences. Music can be added, too.
Vloggi playlists can be branded and customised using the Vloggi Theme Designer tool. This tool allows anyone to create branded video content easily, quickly and afforably. Anyone can create their own templates for a campaign, or brand. The video template builder is a drag-and-drop tool where you can incorporate a logo, intro sequences, transitions and calls to action. All will appear in your finished video.
Yes. Each video clip and playlist is available free of charge to embed in social media and other websites
in our default template. You are free to reuse the captioned Vloggi wherever you chose. Use the embed code
provided on the Vloggi Studio website alongside each Vloggi to
easily add to your site, which will display the copyright.
For templated branded videos, you will need to download the files and then upload it to your social media channels.
Anyone who needs quick, easy and affordable video. The world’s 620 million Facebook
groups and 75 million WordPress blogs all need video, for example. However, Vloggi is aimed at marketing
teams who currently outsource their video work. Because our system makes it easy for digital marketers to
run a video project and then assemble video stories for publication, we are creating a new tool for
marketing departments and agencies. Our system allows communities and business to create video easily and
Anyone who wants to engage with their audience. User generated content is trusted seven times more than advertising content. TripAdvisor, for example, grew off the back of being real guest reviews of hotels. By both using communities to create the content and then serving it back, brands can maximize user-engagement.
By harnessing tribal behaviour. Vloggi relies on users bringing their own audiences. So
for example, Facebook groups have engaged audiences, companies have Facebook fans and Instagram followers.
By using complimentary product, prizes and exposure, our customers can use their customers to create
However, Vloggi content can be licensed for subsequent re-use (depending on project settings), this can create an extra incentive for content creators: They start to help their tribe, but continue to make extra money.
You do not generally need permission to film people in public places, so long as they are not the subject
of the film. This reportage rule varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, but most countries allow
for fair representation of public places. We will be working on a model release form integrated into the
app for those people who are clearly identified.
When responding to paid assignments property rights are granted by the client. In other instances, we will seek property rights and/or brand rights before resale. For commercial projects, please contact us to discuss further.
Yes. In 2019 we rolled out a reporting tool that allows any visitor to the Library to
flag inappropriate content and hide it from public view until it is reviewed by our moderators. If you see
something on the Vloggi Library that you think is inappropriate, illegal or inciting hatred, please use
the Report button to hide from public view.
However, we celebrate the experiences we enjoy when we travel. As such our moderators will reinstate any content that is legal in jurisdictions where we operate. We will delete anything that is against community guidelines of acceptable content. Typically this includes nudity, inciting hatred, voilent acts and illegal drug use.
Further details of Vloggi's content moderation policy is available upon request.
