Opus creates a new revenue stream for recording artists where they can license the use of popular songs for use in videos created by their fans. There is an explosion in images. Every year, an unprecedented number of images are taken on mobile devices and cameras - more than the total number of photographs in recorded history. How does anyone share them? We sync these images with beautiful transitions and titles to create unique multimedia stories that people can share.

Opus allows fans to create and share their own multimedia content.
We then set those animated stories to life with soundtracks from
favorite artists. In this way, an artist can open their catalog, or selected
songs to their fanbase. It creates a substantial new royalty revenue
stream that amounts to many multiples of other sales and distribution
Artists have an incentive to introduce Opus to their fanbase through
fan clubs, websites and concert promotions. This is a unique and
frictionless market, with low cost of customer acquisition. We are
adding value with video production and bringing it all together with
music people love.
In addition to the new revenue stream, there is an added bonus for
the artists, as the user-generated-content promotes the artist and
broadens the fan base.
Substantial New Revenue Stream for Artists
We are looking at partnerships with large user-bases with
customer images, but who do not have rich multimedia offerings.
Our leverage in these relationships are the music licenses and
the application. Opus represents additional, non-competitive
revenue streams for these partners, including; revenue sharing,
additional traffic and purchases of merchandise.

Uber, is now the world's largest taxi service – and it owns
no vehicles. Facebook, the world's most popular media
enterprise, creates no content. Alibaba, the most valuable
retailer, has no inventory and AirBnB, the world's largest
accommodation provider, has no real estate...
In a similar way, we are a media company that is enabling
user-generated content to sell music. We enable people
to share their fondest memories with the people they
love. The music makes the content connect emotionally,
and the movement of images and titles makes it engaging.
