CLINTON, N.J., Aug. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Richard Bezjian, Founder & CEO of VQuick, the video creation and messaging App that successfully launched this past May at TechCrunch Disrupt NY, is issuing a challenge to VQuickers around the world. "We want you to be a part of our social good movement. We are encouraging all VQuickers to capture and share acts of kindness," he says.
The company plans to collect and combine the best of the clips submitted using the VQuick app, to create a short film that demonstrates humanity at its finest, everywhere around the world. "Too often these days, we are bombarded with news focused on the worst aspects of man's inhumanity," says Mr. Bezjian, who wants the VQuick app to become a tool for social good, in addition to being a way for users to communicate with friends and family. "If we can focus on moments of compassion, tolerance, benevolence it can serve to inspire us all to be the best person we can be."
The success of Kickstarter, Snapchat, and the rise in use of crowd-sourced news content by news outlets, is a testament to our need to give back, our need to share experiences and our journalistic tendencies. Mr. Bezjian hopes to take advantage of those inherent traits. He is looking at a long-term commitment with this project, to highlight and promote random acts of kindness that are done by people around the world every single day. By focusing attention on "good Samaritans" who make the world a better place through their selflessness, Mr. Bezjian hopes it will spark a global desire to break down the invisible walls that too often separate us.
The VQuick app's unique "journalist" feature allows individuals to intro and close their footage seamlessly, the way news reporters do, making it easy for citizen journalists around the world to record their "good news Stovies" and add a narrative like a true reporter.
This campaign will kick-off mid-August, and will run for exactly 90 days during which time entries from any where in the world will be accepted. Clips must be at least 30 seconds long and can be as long as 45 seconds. Clips can be submitted under the contest category #BringBackHumanity or shared with the app user VQuick. The 60 best entries from around the world will be edited into a 20-minute movie that will premiere in the early fall. Those whose entries were selected will be announced at that time.
The VQuick app is now available for download for apple and android devices. Join the movement, become a VQuicker. Record, collaborate, edit and share your good Samaritan Stovie. Be a part of recording "our best selves". For more on VQuick visit http://www.vquick.com.
