Introducing Wibbitz Snippets: A Vertical Video Format Perfect for Snapchat & Instagram

Posted by Yotam Cohen on Feb 7, 2017 12:01:00 AM

The success that Snapchat has seen over the last year – with their predominantly millennial audience – has inspired a new approach to video that has taken the social media sphere by storm. The vertical videos made up of short, infographic-styled ‘snippet’ clips first embraced by brands on Snapchat Discover have now become the standard format on Instagram Stories, and, most recently, Facebook Stories, and publishers like the Daily Mail have hired entire teams dedicated to Snapchat-styled video creation. As North American CEO Jon Steinberg told Digiday, “It’s a different canvas. Every snap is custom animation, custom experience, custom design. It’s the only platform where we have dedicated staffers.”

We’re excited to announce the launch of the Wibbitz Snippet, our Control Room's new automated video type – and the first tool for publishers and brands to automatically create vertical videos for Snapchat and Instagram Stories. Check out AdWeek's coverage of our new Snippet tool here!

Introducing the Wibbitz Creative Kit: Customization Tools Built to Enhance Automated Video Creation

Posted by Yotam Cohen on Jun 30, 2016 1:35:16 PM

As the creators of the award-winning AlphaGo bot can attest to, building automation technology to imitate a human’s decision process is an art in itself. Algorithms can be taught to follow an extensive set of combinations, but only a “human touch” can transform an end product into the champion of Go – or, in our case, a storytelling vessel that fellow humans will connect with.
