PASADENA, CA and AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire -03/12/12)- SXSW -- Video editing pioneer Bee Ottinger rolls out an expanded version of her new venture at SXSW, SnapCuts (www.snapcuts.com), the innovative social video messaging company that allows users to 'snap' together video clips, add a personalized text message and then share their creations -- snapcuts -- through social networks.
During the event, SnapCuts' street team will be capturing the SXSW experience, uploading attendee 'shout outs' for festival goers to use in creating their own snapcuts. Indie bands sharing clips of their music videos include Voxhaul Broadcast, Young Buffalo and many more. SnapCuts will be in booth #1542 at SXSW and is a sponsor the Block Party on the show floor on Tuesday, March 13 from 4:00 to 6:00.
"We're excited to roll out SnapCuts for the SXSW community," notes CEO Bee Ottinger. "SXSW video content is the perfect match for SnapCuts because it works in clip format, their clips snap together in ways that make sense, and fans have a lot to say. Also, along with the video from the bands, attendees we interview on the street will be able to insert a clip of themselves when they make their own personal snapcuts."
SnapCuts' curated library contains thousands of compelling clips from both modern and classic television, film, and commercials, enabling users to create effective messages that convey sentiment through mixing personal favorite media references. Selections are the right length, tone and style to easily mix and match.
