Thwapr, Inc., www.thwapr.com – developers of the powerful mobile video sharing platform of the same name which allows quality video content to be sent to and from mobile devices, today announced a strategic alliance with Chip Quigley and his event/TV production, project development and artist management company, Kingdom Entertainment Group.
This is a great opportunity for THWI to seed its revolutionary Thwapr platform throughout the ideally-suited music, entertainment and publishing sectors, in which Quigley’s company is so well footed. In turn Quigley will use the Thwapr platform to supercharge his company’s support of ongoing activities in TV production, large print publishing, events and artist management.
This partnership will take advantage of Thwapr’s new “share-to-phone” capabilities, which let end-users easily share content over some 200+ different types of mobile devices, irrespective of their carriers, while also attaining new benchmarks for video and photo viewing quality.
CEO of THWI, Bruce Goldstein, noted the perfect fit of the Thwapr platform for media and entertainment companies – indeed for any company that needs to ‘mobilize’ its image content, because the platform offers companies the ability to penetrate the vast mobile phone space and extend their reach directly to consumers via mobile devices.
Founder and CEO of Kingdom Entertainment Group, Chip Quigley, noted the multi-platform marketing programs utilized by entertainment companies today to leverage a host of technologies, and cited mobile as the next frontier of development.
Quigley also noted that the Thwapr platform meets (and, in fact, exceeds) expectations for delivering quality video directly to a fan base via mobile, calling the THWI solution a powerful way for a brand to connect and interact with its consumers.
Quigley has earned himself quite a reputation in the event production and management industry, with 40 years of experience and such large-scale major marquis production events notched into his belt as the International Emmy Awards, GQ Man of the Year Award and Conde Nast’s Fashion Rocks.
Quigley is currently engaged in production of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show television special and Bermuda Music Festival, and the management of such recording artists and performers as Mark McGrath from Sugar Ray, who is currently working with Quigley on a new show for Fox and VH1 called “Don’t Forget the Lyrics”.
