In the past you've needed special hardware and software to create your own, professional looking movies. However, one technology start-up company in Grand Junction is looking to change that image.
Loopster.com is a new website that may very well revolutionize the way we create, edit and share videos with our friends, family, or anyone really. This includes the guys from Discovery Channel's hit show American Chopper, who just finished building a custom motorcycle, a trike actually, to help promote the new service.
Bill Baird, CEO of the new company, Loopster.com, has sights set very high on the new website. "We developed what we described as the world's easiest online video editor software," says Baird.
The premise is quite simple, a free cloud-based service for editing video. That being said, the work that went into making this dream a reality wasn't easy.
"So basically we just launched our beta a few weeks ago, and we are proud be to able to do that after 22 months of hard work and dedication from a lot of people. From the west coast to Denver as well. With many programs, and many people involved in the project," says Bill Baird, CEO of Loopster.com.
The end result is a very simplified way to not only edit and create videos, but share them as well.
"You can log into loopster with a Facebook account. Once the video is edited and done, you can shoot it right back out to Facebook. It will go on your landing page when you are done editing video," says Baird.
In order to help get the word out about the innovative product, Loopster commissioned Paul Teutul, Jr, from the Discovery Channel's hit show, American Chopper, to build them a custom motorcycle.
"Loopster commissioned Paul Junior Designs about 3 months ago to build us a bike, and last weekend we unveiled it here at Gateway Canyons Resort. Which is a beautiful place. Kind of give something back to western Colo. We don't get a lot of real big exciting things and this is a great tribute back to our town," says Baird.
The show featuring the bike unavailing at Gateway Canyons Resort will air on September 10 and 17, on the Discovery Channel.
The one-off bike is currently on display in the car museum at the resort, along with a few other one-offs as well. Including Paul, Jr's breathtaking P51 Mustang themed bike he carted for the build off between him, his father and Jesse James.
Along with the bikes, a few rare cars are on display as well. "We have a 1954 DeSoto Guilla, that is a one of a kind. Purchased at the Barrett Jackson auction of 2012 for $1.3 Million," says Kindra Mazurek of Gateway Canyons Resort.
Another rare car on display is a 1954 F88, purchased at the Barret Jackson auction for $3.24 million. This also is a one of a kind.
The rare cars, and the bikes from American Chopper, will be on display through the month of July.
