Frame.io, a leading video review and collaboration platform used by over one million filmmakers and media professionals, today announced it has raised a $50 million Series C round to help support its next big push into cloud-enabled motion picture workflows. Frame.io will also use this round of financing to continue its deep investment into airtight security, intuitive UX, and camera-to-cutting room technology. Insight Partners led the round with contributions from all existing major stakeholders, including Accel, FirstMark, SignalFire, and Shasta Ventures. Itai Tsiddon, co-founder of Lightricks, will represent Insight Partners as Frame.io’s newest board member.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Insight on this next round of financing. Insight deeply understands the creative space and the changing tides the film and video market will see over the next several years,” said Emery Wells, co-founder and CEO of Frame.io. “2019 has been a year of massive growth and of major milestones for us: we celebrated reaching 100 employees, moved into brand new headquarters in lower Manhattan and, most recently, welcomed industry veteran Michael Cioni to the team. We are driving to create the most innovative approach to video workflows since the emergence of digital 20 years ago.”
