JOLLYFY OFFERS FATHER'S DAY MOBILE VIDEO THEMES




Jollyfy (www.jollyfy.com), the first mobile video personalization app, today announced that it has created themes for Father's Day, which enables users to create videos with Father's Day themes in the camera viewfinder of their iPhone, iPad, of iPod Touch. Jollyfy can be downloaded from http://itunes.com/apps/jollyfy.

“The Father's Day holiday is an event for gadget-lovers, and we want to enable more fun with mobile video that can be shared with relevant Father's Day themes. Jollyfy is an ideal platform for capturing moments for Father's Day, and we think that more fathers will be upgrading their smartphone and tablets this year, which is a perfect time for us to offer a way to commemorate these events,” said Maciej Wisniewski, Founder and Chief Scientist of netomat, Inc., which created Jollyfy.

Jollyfy is an innovative video personalization platform for consumers and brands to record and share personalized and branded videos through social media, e-mail, and Jollyfy’s community. The Jollyfy app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch enables users to add video themes that appear as overlays in the camera viewfinder. When a user records video, the theme becomes part of the user’s video. Users can select from hundreds of existing themes (popular themes include Happy Birthday, Breaking News, the Kiss Cam, Wish You Were Here, Vintage Film and Mr. President), make their own themes, or use themes made and shared by other users.

“We have seen large upticks in use around social and family events, and Father's Day is a major tentpole for tech-savvy mobile users who want to do more than just share a photo,” said Kris Ramanathan, netomat’s CEO and Co-Founder. “The value of Jollyfy for Father's Day is that is provides a true 'frame' for event video that is spontaneous and shareable."

Video Themes for Any Occasion


Users can make Jollyfy themes with many popular graphics and motion graphics software programs, including Adobe Photoshop, Aftereffects, Premiere; Apple Motion, Final Cut Pro; Autodesk’s Maya; Smith Micro’s Anime Studio; Maxon’s CINEMA 4D and the open source programs, GIMP and Blender 3D.  Themes can include text, images, video elements, animation, special effects, 3D images, filters, and more.  A simple in-app “theme wizard” enabling users without any knowledge of these tools to make rich themes will also be launched soon.   More information and instructional videos are available on the Jollyfy website at http://www.jollyfy.com/fsxsw/tutor.php.

Create Group Video Albums and Conversations with Jollyfy


Users can share any theme they make with friends, family, colleagues or the entire Jollyfy community.  When they do so, all videos made and shared with that theme are automatically grouped together into a video album.  For instance, a college student creates a Jollyfy theme for his roommate’s surprise party and invites friends to use it.  Everyone downloads the Jollyfy app and records videos with that theme before, during and after the party to create a video album that these friends can enjoy forever.  Another user creates a theme for an important cause and shares that theme with others to also express through video why that cause is important.  Thousands of evocative, themed videos made by ordinary people are recorded and shared via email and social media in just days. Lastly, a parent creates a theme for his daughter’s 10-and-under soccer team and shares it with other parents to capture videos of games, practices, team members and goofing around throughout the kids’ soccer season.

Jollyfy is currently supported on the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad 2 and 3, and iPod Touch (4th generation). Jollyfy requires iOS 5.0+
