"This software has AMAZING potential"

What do you like best?

This powerful interface allow a director to remotely capture a subject on their own device. Multiple directors can join on the directing/watch side of the app, while the remote subject can view the director(s) on their own screen. Directors are able to control device video settings and monitor device features such as battery life and internet connection. Another amazing feature is the ability to load scripts into a teleprompter that allows the subject to read their script.

What do you dislike?

As of the writing of this, we could only us Apple devices, although a desktop version in Beta mode, and an Android version in the works.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This could truly elevate your business IF you have the right application scenarios. It is on the pricier side of apps and could easily cost you a lot of money if it's not used often.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

OpenReel allows any company to capture video remotely on a mobile phone. This could be great for shooting client testimonies, marketing videos for dentists, realtors, etc.

The ability to stay at home base and remotely direct a video shoot save both time and money. The interface allows many powerful features, such as remotely controlling the subject's device features like lighting, front/rear camera, and constant monitor of remote device resources (camera, internet connection, etc.).

"Good system; could use some work"

What do you like best?

I like that the platform is pretty easy to use. It is pretty intuitive and does not require a lot of training.

What do you dislike?

I wish that you could edit your video within the app (more than just trimming). You have to trim the video as soon as you are done filming - you cannot trim once uploaded.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider your needs - if you need full video editing software this product is not for you. If you need software that will shoot decent quality, short videos then this product will likely work for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

OpenReel is helping us with our video blogs. We needed more vlogs on our website and in our marketing efforts. OpenReel has great tracking features that have helped us realize our most watched topics, when and how people are watching the videos, etc.
