The Critiqr App Official Blog – Helping Filmmakers Amp Up Their Film Game!
Critiqr: Connecting Filmmakers to Feedback
New mobile app Critiqr is set to officially launch early next month.
Critiqr is a mobile app that serves as a virtual workshop, connecting filmmakers to feedback on their work-in-progress films. Asheville filmmaker Kira Bursky of All Around Artsy created Critiqr as a response to her Youtube fans’ requests for feedback on their own films.
On Critiqr, filmmakers can post any type of video content for feedback. Using an in-app rubric, critiquers are encouraged to leave their constructive thoughts. Users are rewarded with tickets and points that allow them to level up and climb the ranks in the community. Interested filmmakers and film lovers are encouraged to sign up now to be the first to join the community.
Critiqr will be available in both the Apple and Google Play stores on October 5th, 2018 and will officially launch at the All-American High School Film Festival in NYC during Kira’s workshop at the Opening Night Party.
“I want to help filmmakers develop and strengthen their craft, regardless of age and location. With Critiqr we’ll link up novices with pros and provide the workshop experience for free, for anyone,” says Critiqr CEO Kira Bursky.
On October 6th from 9am-6pm, come meet Kira and talk to her in person about Critiqr at the AMC Theaters Times Square in NYC during the Technology Showcase at All-American High School Film Festival.
