Have you met Frankie? It’s not a person, but a tool for reviewing video from any location through a browser. It’s a great way for agencies that create videos to increase collaboration.
Since Frankie works through a web browser, there’s no software to install. All users need is an internet connection to access their Frankie account with. From there they can play or pause video, add notes to a work in progress, and even sketch directly on the video. When the user is done, Frankie creates a PDF of the input and sends a copy to all of that project’s collaborators.
The 2.0 version of Frankie has just come out, adding the ability to hold a group review. That means team members in different locations and time zones can all log in and view a video at the same time. If a participant wants to review a work on his or her own, they’re free to de-link from the group playback and review the video privately. Afterwards, Frankie creates a PDF with the full group’s comments.
Frankie works on the Windows, Mac, and iOS platforms. Inviting someone to review a video is as easy as sending them a link.
Frankie isn’t cheap, but it’s reasonable. Plans start at $249 per month, which lets teams collaborate on five projects. Plans allow for unlimited users, unlimited reviews, and 10GB of online storage. If that sounds appealing, sign up for the seven-day free trial and get to know Frankie on a first-name basis.
