CES 2019: Makidoo, making videos easier than ever

This application makes it easy to create professional looking videos using only your smartphone. The start-up that makes it will be at La Poste’s French IoT stand at CES 2019.

30'' to convince

Offered as a monthly subscription, the Makidoo app lets you create corporate videos on your smartphone with help from a virtual Assistant Director who leads you through three steps: choosing a template, guided filming, and automatic editing. At the end, even users who don't have any technical filmmaking skills are left with a professional-looking product.

Who we areWhowe are

Based in la Roche-sur-Yon, Dream and Achieve is the start-up that designed the Makidoo app. This start-up was founded in July 2016, when Julien Comte, the founder of a company that specialises in online corporate videos met Angel Investor Michel Gay. The third partner was Sophie Comte, who cofounded the company alongside her husband Julien. Today, Dream and Achieve has four employees.


The strengthsOurstrengths

Videos will account for 82% of global internet traffic in two years. The Makidoo app is available for iPhone and Android, making video production more accessible by guiding the user from beginning to end, from choosing a template/storyboard to filming, to editing.

Makidoo is a guided mobile video creation app with automated editing. Making a video is a simple three-step process: first, choose a custom template, then follow the shot by shot filming guidance, which uses specific instructions that draw on the basic rules of filmmaking to create consistent and original video content, and finally automatic editing that uses an algorithm to edit the entire video in only a few seconds.

Videos will account for 82% of global internet traffic in two years. Makidoo is a tool that is especially well suited for businesses that regularly need to create short-form minute-long videos for social media.

Partnership with KissKiss BankBank

KissKissBankBank, a subsidiary of La Banque Postale, saw that crowdfunding campaigns that don’t use videos have a harder time raising funds than those that do. That’s why this platform decided to partner with Dream and Achieve to give users the opportunity to use Makidoo to create a video for free. All they need to do is download the application and enter the activation code they receive when they sign up with KissKissBankBank. This offer will last for 6 months.
