The last couple of weeks have been mind-blowing. Firstly, I have the pleasure of posting my OVP Test Drive reviews on VidCompare.com, thanks to its founder, Kris Drey. Since then, I have been contacted by a few people in the online video industry, complimenting me on how thorough and in-depth those posts really go. Thanks to all those who reached out – the encouragement will only result in more reviews, so stay tuned!
Secondly, to my surprise and excitement, I was contacted by Ooyala and had the chance to speak with its co-founder and President of Products, Bismarck Lepe. During that discussion, Bismarck kindly walked me through a very detailed demo of Backlot and addressed all of the questions I originally raised in my April review of their free trial. Don’t worry – the results of that demo will be shared on this site before the end of the month.
Finally, after the demo, Bismarck was kind enough to answer some general questions I had about Ooyala. The following is an exchange that took place by email late last week.

Since getting my iPhone I’ve enjoyed creating short clips and posting them on my Facebook account, but never really did any editing on the device. So, I blew some cash in the App Store to try out video editing apps for the iPhone and post my findings here.

I have categorized these five based on the level of editing and features you may be interested in: Simple (few features, speedy rendering), Intermediate (additional features but not what I would call feature-rich), and Advanced (deep mobile editing, feature rich, offers more tools than the previous two categories).
