We want to empower creators with all the tools they need to make fun, captivating content, FAST.
Reelshot is a small team of app lovers based in the UK.
Inspired by a friend searching for a house to rent and sending videos through to a group chat, we wondered how they could be improved and easier to make.
The app was born with the target of adventurers an explorers in mind. Or anyone that wanted to condense those longer videos where they may be travelling.
We've proudly partnered with WILKO ventures who have helped us bring this project to life and continue to support the growth and direction for the Reelshot brand.
Our ultimate aim is is to encourage further creativity, sharing and inspire people to explore...
We're all about keeping things real and using the Reel.
To empower artists with all the tools they need to connect directly with fans whilst growing their audience.
We want people to be proud of owning their music collection, to treasure it and support the creators that produce it.
Encourage fans to find the balance between streaming and owning music by giving them the opportunity to be part of an artists journey and nurture their growth.
