The Simulated Twitter Takeover

We offer our clients the opportunity to have us work for them in secret – they get to literally “White Label” our content as their own. 

So how do we show prospective clients how great our work is? Simple. We take over the timelines of brands who haven’t yet hired us, and we fix their content, in a (simulated) Twitter Takeover.

Blackbird haven’t yet hired the Hive-Mind – but if they did, it might look like this:

Blackbird @blackbirdcloud 
Producer: “What’s your sob story?”

Me: “You’ve made me cut this show in Premiere…”

Keep the tales of overcoming impossible hardship IN FRONT of the camera. Edit with Blackbird.

Blackbird @blackbirdcloud 
Avid Editor: You want this online in one minute!? Are you mad!?

Blackbird Editor: What shall I do with the other 30 seconds?

Blackbird @blackbirdcloud 
Slow and steady might win the race, but it won’t go viral.

And on the fifth day…

…Premiere finally finished rendering

EXT. CREEPY COUNTRY ROAD – NIGHT

Your car battery’s dead and you can only pick up the faintest 3G.

As you wait by the side of the road, unsure whether you’ll be rescued or murdered, you open Blackbird with a smile.

At least you can get that edit out on social.

Now that every frame is stored securely in the cloud, you’re going to have to find a new cover story for your portable hard drive fetish.

Blackbird @blackbirdcloud 
Blackbird’s low bandwidth operability means you really can work from anywhere (even beyond the Wall).

Blackbird @blackbirdcloud 
You know what they say about men with big harddrives… they’re overcompensating for their lack of cloud storage.

Blackbird @blackbirdcloud 
I wish this video took longer to edit, said no-one ever.

Her: I bet you can’t give it to me in under 30 seconds?

Blackbird: Hold my beer.

Blackbird @blackbirdcloud 
Premiere users: ‘Command+S’ time by completing your ‘Shift+UP’ with Blackbird.

Blackbird @blackbirdcloud 
Cloud based, like God. (Except Blackbird works seven days a week).

Blackbird @blackbirdcloud 
Blckbrd?

Nope. Looks like Blackbeard.

Don’t mind us. We’re just seeing if there are any other ways we could make things quicker for you.
