Company Overview

SKIT! app is the interactive animated video app for telling stories - like Instagram or YouTube for animated mini videos. We enable users to create, share, and remix animated videos using their own photos, images from the Web or a range of characters and backdrops within the app. And every story shared can be remixed, continued, or just sampled, allowing stories to inspire and evolve to new forms of expression. For the first time, kids can safely create and interact with videos online. To quote a user, "Skit is like YouTube, but you don't have to show your face, and you can make anything you want!"

Since the launch of our Beta in 2014, over 40,000 Skits created and shared. We've also enjoyed over 3.5 million views, comments, and remixes -- our "engagement" metric. And SKIT! has been featured in Bloomberg, Mobile Marketer, Mashable, CNet, TechCrunch, Android Central, Macaroni Kid, and more.

We currently partner with Warner Bros who leverages SKIT! to engage with their brand audiences. Most recently we ran a creation campaign for The LEGO Movie which produced over 2000 Lego Skits -- more social content than 11 feature-length movies combined.

SKIT! previously raised $600k+ in angel financing from prominent investors including TechStars, Cloud Power Capital, Warner Bros, Federal Street Angels, and more. SKIT! has offices in Boston, New York, and Los Angeles.
