Storymix Media graduated from Capital Factory in Austin last year.
Since then, Mike and Ariane Fisher, the husband and wife founders, have expanded and diversified the startup’s product line from wedding videos to business, bar mitzvahs and personal videos.
“Now when people think of Storymix video we’re not just a wedding video maker,” Mike Fisher said. “We’re the perfect site to get a video for any event you’re going to.”
Storymix Media, based in Oak Park, Il., also released a free iPhone app. It works when someone buys a video production package. They get a code to activate the iPhone app, Fisher said.
Storymix Media has also launched an affiliate program that it has developed so that event planners can re-sell or refer its services to their clients.
On March 11, Storymix Media will be among 15 finalists that will present their companies in a four minute pitch at HATCH, an event being held as part of the new SXSW Startup Village.
The top three companies to gain the most “virtual dollar” votes from the judges win.
“We looked at this as an opportunity to be able to showcase what we’re doing,” Fisher said. “It’s a great chance for us to get in front of investors outside of Chicago. Investors from different areas of the country.”
Storymix Media is looking for $1.5 million in seed stage funding.
