Rackspace Startup Program Spotlight: Storymix Media

Filed in Partner & Customer Updates by John McKenna | October 4, 2011 2:15 pm

[1]Over the summer of 2011, Capital Factory[2] in Austin, Texas was nurturing a group of startup companies including the Rackspace Startup Program[3] sponsored Storymix Media[4] who creates stories from your personal video.  They make it easy to create a beautifully edited video as it is to design a photo book. Storymix Media is a great value when you need a wedding video that won’t bust your budget. Your guests can capture every special moment of your wedding; you add your personal touch and the editors at Storymix Media create a video that captures those memories forever.

Since 2006 Founders Mike and Ariane Fisher have been providing Hollywood production quality movies from personal and professional photos, films and videos. They realized that few people ever do anything with the video clips they record.  Their important memories were just being lost and buried on hard drive. Storymix Media was conceived from the idea that if they could make an easy and affordable online process, people could tell a story with their clips and Storymix Media could handle the hard stuff. And the push for an online business began with the help of Capital Factory in 2011.

“Our previous startup ReeltimeDVD was focused on converting slides, photos, film reels, and video tapes to digital,” says Mike Fisher, Founder and CEO of Storymix Media.  “We also had people asking if we could edit their videos from their weddings.  When the new HD handheld cameras came out with image stabilization we knew there must be a way to offer a service to provide couples an affordable way to get a wedding video.”

What’s been happening at Storymix Media since August?

“We’re busy taking care of customer orders and making sure they’re all happy.  We also just got back from two major wedding vendor trade shows and are super busy following up with everyone who wants to be part of our affiliate program.  And if that wasn’t enough, we’re finishing up our iPhone app!” Fisher then looks to his future vision for Storymix Media “We are going to significantly grow our wedding business and build Storymix into a national brand.  We want to expand into two other event verticals that are natural fits for our service, most likely bar mitzvahs and youth sports teams.”

Creating lasting memories is what Storymix Media is all about. Like Storymix, taking an existing business and creating an online presence is what many entrepreneurs are pushing forward today. This is why the Rackspace Startup Program[3] does what it does for the startup. Helping the business owner move their existing brick and mortar entity online, providing Cloud Computing resources and giving the startup the Fanatical Support they need to make the transition to the web. If your startup is ready for world class Cloud hosting, we can help. Contact the Rackspace Startup Program today and find out how your company can benefit!
