Charlie Simpson here – sadly not of Busted fame, though if you’re reading this Charlie, I did get sent a shedload of your fan mail for many years, and even got an invitation to a “celebrities and their dogs” calendar. I have a feeling it was you they were after. Wonder if you did it? Anyway, I’m not that one. I’m the Charlie S who is a co founder of Present.Me
When we started PMe it was obviously very much with the presentation world in mind. But I just love the way different folk are finding different ways to use it. From teachers, to students, to corporate presentations, to folk who are just sending a cool message to a loved one in another country. Last week I met up with a fantastic guy called Ali Niaz. He’s a talented rapper, but as anyone who’s knows anything about the music industry knows, its really challenging out there. So Ali had an idea – GiftRapt. You’re celebrating – an anniversary, or a Wedding; you send Ali some information / details and a few relevant photos about the individual or family involved. Ali will put a rap together using the info u give him. Then, using the Present.Me technology, he’ll sync a video of him performing your own personal rap, edited together with the photos you sent him or if you don’t want video, he’ll just sync the photos with an audio soundtrack. There are loads of options. Anyway, he’s a talented guy. He’s done a giftrap for us at Present.Me as you can see. Check it out if you’ve got a minute.
I would never have dreamt of PMe being used in this way, but it’s so cool. We passionately believe in bringing the best in online communication to the world, whether you’re a business, a teacher, a presenter, or Ali Niaz – good luck mate.
