I’m excited to announce that Nate has joined our new company AnyClip as the VP of Product. He has posted a great account of how he and I have come to work together and you should definitely read it here. Nate is one of the NY tech scene’s favorite people, but I’m making a big bet on his product development skills and I’ve never been more confident. We have our work cut out for us. Nate is taking on the Herculean task of building a platform to take new movie clips where they have never gone before. He will need all you to contribute killer ideas.
AnyClip grew out of an Israeli company called MyHollywood which launched a proof-of-concept product called PopTok. From the time we started talking about movie applications, Nate and I were thinking about a database of movie clips for application developers.
Imagine every movie ever made available to be clipped for legal consumption and use. That is our dream. We have already released our API to a few product companies and hope to see more and more products in the coming months.
At AnyClip, we will create a legal, licensable asset for developers to access. We already have signed agreements with Paramount, Universal, Warner Bros and are close to a slew of new annoucements.
Naturally, we all have a series of ideas for application creation. You can see Nate’s first attempt at CastingCouch on Facebook. Finally, one of the great bonuses of AnyClip is that Nate and I are sitting in Jerusalem as we write these posts. Here, we have a really sharp, passionate team of developers and movie lovers and we will continue to add people here in Israel. We also have a few needs in the United States which Nate detailed in his post.
We’ll keep you posted when we launch AnyClip.
