RootsTech 2013 New Product Alert - ReelGenie

In the RootsTech 2013 Expo Hall, the ReelGenie booth was directly across from the Media Hub.

The ReelGenie founder and CEO is David Adelman, on the left in the picture above, with Elisha Milner in the middle and Carlton Anderson on the right.

ReelGenie can be described as:

"ReelGenie helps people create and share family videos online. Users select a storyline for their movie, and ReelGenie guides them through the process of uploading photos, videos, and historical documents; recording voiceovers; and adding music to generate an online movie that can be shared with family and friends. Geared toward the creation of personal history movies for birthdays, memorials, anniversaries, and reunions, the service is the first of its kind. It improves upon slideshows and photo books by guiding users to tell a compelling story while incorporating a variety of rich content."

The online service will cost $9.95 per month, or $19.95 per movie.  Having seen what my brother-in-law's daughter went through to create a similar movie with other applications - it took weeks to create and publish - this ReelGenie application looks to be less costly, faster and easier to use.  All of that is win-win for those of us that want to create movies about our families.

The website is, but it doesn't have any content on it at this time - only a registration box.
