90 Seconds, the cloud video production platform and marketplace, today announced it has launched in Australia, opening offices in Sydney and Melbourne, following its recent AU$10 million funding injection from Sequoia Capital.
90 Seconds has opened offices in Sydney and Melbourne and now has a full time team of 15 and over 700 creators in Australia. The company plans to expand rapidly over the coming months and is currently hiring staff across sales, production and customer success.
The online marketplace connects brands and their agencies with video creative professionals such as videographers, directors, editors, producers, animators, drone operators and photographers in over 84 countries.
Founder and CEO of 90 Seconds, Tim Norton (pictured above) said, “By 2017, video will account for 69 per cent of all consumer traffic, so we are proud to have developed a solution that works for global brands to deliver fast, affordable content.
“For Australian companies, 90 Seconds can help them produce quality video for a fraction of what advertising agencies would charge.”
Some of the world’s biggest brands including Uber, Visa, PayPal, Sony, Samsung, Barclays and Microsoft use the platform regularly. 90 Seconds is the only platform currently available to help streamline the costs of shooting across multiple locations.
“We have streamlined the production workflow so companies can purchase, plan, shoot, edit and review professional video online or from their mobile device from anywhere on the planet” said Daniel Littlepage, managing director, 90 Seconds, Australia.
“It’s always great to work with 90 Seconds. They have the unique ability to operate quickly at a national scale to generate content at a more affordable price point,” said AJ Tills, senior marketing manager, Uber.
“Their customer service is super responsive which means that we can pull together large campaigns in time constrained environments.”
