What is myMOVIE.GURU?

myMOVIE.GURU is an innovative video recording app that allows users to use standardized templates to produce branded video content directly on their smartphones.

All our templates are based on our 48 Seconds™ concept and therefore have the perfect format to make sure everyone gets the main message. Just pick one of the templates and the on-screen stage directions will guide you step by step through the process of creating your video.

Users can also enter data within some of the steps. This data can either be displayed in one of the sequences or it can be used further after processing the video, i.e. by being sent to an online database.

Finally, the app automatically adds the Corporate Design to the processed videos by adding still frames and prepared animated sequences to the video. This way every clip will already be fully completed and ready to share once it has been processed. The production of short videos has never been cheaper, faster and easier than it has become with this app! Explore the possibilities in many areas, such as real estate, car sales, as a tool for decentralized video recruitment, as a marketing tool, for video contests or as a tool to report issues or errors in a video-based quality management.

48 Seconds™

The 48 Seconds™ concept

Among other things myMOVIE.GURU is built on our templates. Those are standardized to create videos not longer than 48 seconds. This format is precisely the right length for short videos. Much like there have been standards before, say the standard size of a postcard that perfectly fit average hands, so does the 48 Seconds™ Concept introduces a new standard for video consumption in the age of information technology and social media. 48 second MMG’s perform very well on homepages, on social media walls or attached to emails.

There is a lot of information to take in these days. As tests have shown, the average attention span decreases rapidly after 50 seconds. That’s why every MMG template wraps the information up in small but attractive packages of 48 seconds to make sure that it will be received.

Furthermore, the 48 Seconds™ Concept guarantees the recipient that everything he or she needs to know will be communicated in a digestible timespan. When people see that a video doesn’t take longer than a minute they are much more likely to start watching it in the first place. As much as SMS or Twitter, myMOVIE.GURU isn’t just a technical solution, but a revolutionary format. Endless e-mails or PDFs end up on a to-do list most times. Due to the compact and attractively packaged information it’s more likely, that the clip will be consumed. No matter what you explain, it takes less than a minute and the viewer is informed.

Our standardized format also limits the size of each clip. Even MMGs filmed in HD won’t be bigger than 50 MB and this way easier to share and transfer.

In case you don’t want to puzzle your head over the sequential order and the ideal length of each step for your use-case, we provide workshops, to work on a template for your use-case together. Don’t hesitate to contact us anytime!


Video Cutting Templates for Smartphone

The technical key element of our App myMOVIE.GURU is the possibility, to create pre-defined video cutting templates for our customers. Instead of just filming through and to cut certain sequences in a post-production process, in our templates all steps are pre-defined. The user can view and record the different sequences over and over again, before he moves to the next sequence. It doesn’t matter when a certain sequence is recorded, you can film one part in one place, close the app and finish the video later at another location. With the execution process of the video the final cut will be processed, the overlays including entered data, animations and branding will be added and executed to the finished video.

One special USP of myMOVIE.GURU is that the user is guided step-by-step with on-screen stage directions and so through the entire process of the video production.

Because of the specifications of number and duration of the sequences in a template, all videos based on this template are structural exactly the same. In combination with our 48 Seconds™ concept, all our videos are standardized and therefore directly comparable. It only takes a few views and the viewer intuitively knows what to expect.

Along with the guided recording of the video sequences there are other steps, which can be part of a template. These steps can be used as information distribution, can request data entry or be used as advertising areas within the template. So the templates of myMOVIE.GURU are based on video cutting, but are in fact way more than that.

Our products are segmented in different prize segments. They can be used as out-of-the-box solution for a certain application, like car sales or real estate, or specially tailored for individual requests. Contact us today with your request and we will be there for you!


Data Entry in our templates

With myMOVIE.GURU you can enter data via input forms within the template and display this data in the video. That way you can deliver precise information, which for instance can be shown during different sequences of the video. Also showing a summary of all information at the end of the video is a common choice.

Such data can provide all sorts of information to somebody who is watching the MMG. Contact details, specifications about the content displayed in the MMG, even requests to those, who watch the video – the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

Our automobile-template is a perfect example. The precise features of the car filmed with myMOVIE.GURU, like type, colour, HP, year of manufacture, etc., filled in a data form, can be used in the following sequence or at least be summarized and displayed as a 2 second overlay in the „Best Angle “-photo at the end of the video.

It is as well possible to use the entered data for other purposes. We can for example extract and transmit data from the MMG within highly complex process documentations – either via email or via direct data-base connection. The possibilities range from fully automated data capture, for example through a competition, to direct allocation of data to clusters. Even smart publication processes are possible.

Content Branding

automated logo overlay

One of the key points why myMOVIE.GURU is a true asset for every company, is because the app allows automated and standardized branding of the created video content directly on your smartphone. It is very easy to integrate static logos and short animations in our templates and display them as overlays over your videos.

This way each recorded video will be in line with your Corporate Design and can be distributed and shared directly from your smartphone to the relevant channels. To add a personal note, you can decide for each sequence where the logo will be displayed.

In case you already have an intro-animation we can add it to the template and make it available for the requested users. If you don’t have one, we will gladly create one for you. Same goes for static logo-frames.

Content Branding directly from your device is essentially in connection with the social media presence of your company. At the end of the day myMOVIE.GURU is a cheap, efficient and fast way to create standardized and fully branded content. No more video crews, no more hours of cutting in a studio, no more post-productions, but one single tool that will deliver a comparable result no matter how many people use it.

Stage Directions

Guide the user through the process

One special USP of myMOVIE.GURU are the on-screen stage directions, which guide the user through the entire process of the video production step-by-step. Advise can be of technical or content nature. This leads to unthinkable opportunities regarding the endless applications.

Technical advises generally lead to a higher quality of the end-product. Recommendations, like „don’t film against the sun or bright sources of light“ and stage directions like „keep your smartphone stable“ increase the probability, that the video matches up to a higher quality.

Content advise is a key-factor of myMOVIE.GURU product range. During production of a video, there are on-screen commands like „enter the room and make a huge but slow turn“ with the real estate video template or „now make a 360° sequence of your car“ in case using the car sales template. Following the arrow on screen let you check where you should be in the 360° sequence. These advises guarantee the standardization of the content.

With decentralized organized short-film production as it is used e.g. in competitions, video advertising, event reporting or in the field of quality management, stage directions are essential for the entire end-product. Give the user a chance to speak, as a testimonial, as a job application or as a report – with the right structure of sequences you get authentic, impressive and meaningful video material the way you need it. With myMOVIE.GURU you get superior content with low effort, at low cost and in high quality and quantity.

User Generated Content is the future of marketing, HR and quality management. The right stage directions are the key to get the right end-product. Contact us today and get the information you need to transform your ideas into reality.


What are steps?

Each myMOVIE.GURU template is segmented into different steps, depending on the application. These steps serve different functionalities. Basically there are four combinable types of steps: video sequences to be filmed, information, forms for data entry or video streams.

Filming video sequences, which are supported by on-screen stage directions, are the functional backbone of myMOVIE.GURU. These sequences open the door to the innovative video cuts in our templates. But: They are only one part leading to the countless applications of our App – the three other steps are as well essential.

For the better and useful information of the user, in order to provide tips and guidance or to provide certain mandatory legal information like Terms and Conditions or conditions for participation, a step can as well provide such information and make sure it’s received.

myMOVIE.GURU allows as well data entry for different reasons. Therefore we provide certain steps based on the use-case.

The (currently) latest opportunity, which our app provides as a process step, is that an information video can be streamed within the step. This opens other wide range of possibilities of application. In a concept of a competition an advertising video can be embedded – if a user wants to participate, the video has to be opened. In case of very complex procedures, additional tutorial videos can be placed here. Even an entire knowlegde base – filmed with myMOVIE.GURU - can be placed here step-by-step, in order to explain the context. New application areas will be added on a constant basis - so, come again and check it out.


User Generated Branded Content

One of the most exiting aspects of the digital revolution is the shift of executive competence to the periphery, under the guidance and coordination of centralized units - better known as „Gig-Economy“ or „Sharing-Economy“. Companies, like AirBNB, Uber or Foodora achieved market leader positions without ever steering a taxi or delivering food by themselves. At the centre of all these developments is not only an idea, the core is primarily technology – the smartphone. This technology provides now the opportunity to implement, what was so far only discussed behind the scenes: User Generated Branded Content.

Essentially it is like Uber for marketers: let your customers produce your advertising by using the most successful medium of the 21st century – the video. How should that work? myMOVIE.GURU makes it happen.

Define technical and content specifications in steps and in stage directions of a template and benefit from the standardization of the 48 seconds™ concept. Pre-define the branding and motivate your clients or your community with a video competition for the production, make them into quick-reporters or let them keep a video-diary.

Each video that is created does automatically have the exact same structure and, if you wish so, even a similar content – everything of course with your branding. At one hand, you can generate an endless volume of authentic video material, which goes directly into a server-bucket, where you can access the content filterable and utilizable.

On the other hand request your customers to share the content with their own social media bubble and thereby scale your advertising message. This way your message is customized exactly to your target group, by the individual note of each user.

User Generated Branded Content is the future. Contact us and get all the information you need to set sail for your future.

Example: Knowledge Base

Besides, the video as well overcomes all sorts of language hurdles or reading difficulties and therefore is an universal comprehensible medium.
