Who are the people behind Editr? Why are we creating an online video editing tool? Why should you care? Read on to find out…
Who are we?
We are Saff, Tim and Farah, the co-founders of Editr. Saff and Tim are Software Engineers, and I am a Pharmacist. We are based in London and it has always been our dream to have our own successful start-up business. This last year has shown us that life is too short to wait around for things to happen, so here we are! Saff and Tim are the smart ones, they use their technology brains to build every aspect of the product. I do everything content/social media related - including writing our blog posts.
How did we get here?
During the first lockdown, I started an Instagram account with the aim of showcasing life on the front line of the NHS. This is when I realised how tedious video editing can be.
Instead of focussing on telling my story, I found I was spending most of my time attempting to edit videos. Specifically, I just wanted an easy way to add subtitles to my video content. I wasn’t sure if this was a me problem, so I did what I usually do when it comes to technical difficulties – asked my pals Saff and Tim for help. Weeks later, after trying loads of online video editing platforms, we realised that nothing was as seamless or as simple as we would have liked. We collectively decided to fix this problem and after a lot of hard work - here we are!
Our mission is to break down the barriers around video editing. Anyone and everyone can use our platform easily, with no video editing experience needed. We truly believe that everyone should be able to showcase their craft easily. Essentially, we have created an easy video editing software without unnecessary gimmicks. In the world that we live in, it is important to be able to release content if and when needed, with no unnecessary frustrations or delays to stop us. Use our video editor for vlogs, to edit TikTok videos and so much more!
Our platform is still young, we are constantly thinking of ways to improve but we are confident that together we can provide content creators with an innovative solution that will save time and reduce stress levels – what more could you ask for!
With this blog, we plan to transparently document our journey, sharing the successes and failures faced, as well as everything in between. Here's to being the best easy video editing software around! Check our online video editor out by clicking here.
