Vyclone: Crowdsourced Filmmaking
Has anyone lately had the fly eye effect at a concert? While watching the main stage, you suddenly see the action refracted into a thousand different cell phones, held rapt recording the live event? Now we can put all this footage into one place to get a compelling film!
This incredible new app, Vyclone, from Joe Sumner lets two or more people in close proximity shoot video with their iPhones, upload the clips and then view a movie that is automatically spliced together from different angles. Vyclone tags each video with the location where it was shot using GPS and then lines them up by date and time.
Joe was touring with his band Fiction Plane and noticed over 400 YouTube videos of the show that went online the day after the show. This gave him the idea for Vyclone, an app that has investment from Madonna, Ashton Kutcher, Live Nation, DreamWorks and VC firm Thrive Capital.
