MAKE A MOVIE WITH THE SELDI 

Professional filmmaker director Beom-sik Jeong used SELDIs to record authentic POV footage and selfie videos for his new movie Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum.

SELDI was used as a GoPro rig in the recently released South Korean horror movie Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum. Every actor wore a SELDI GoPro rig and the footage was used in the movie.

SELDI IS THE EASIEST WAY TO RECORD POV VIDEOS WITH ANY SMARTPHONE OR ACTION CAMERA 

This is the first true alternative to chest mounts. With SELDI, everyone can record first-person point-of-view (POV) videos quickly and easily.

No crazy contraptions or expensive hardware needed.

SELDI slides over your head and rests on your shoulders effortlessly. And, your clothes won't get wrinkled. 

Leave the gear bag at home, and don't waste your time swapping accessories. Grab your SELDI, change the mode, adjust the position and start recording.

SELDI was used to film key scenes in the recently released horror film, Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum. The movie blends first-person live stream footage with documentary-style filmmaking.

The director of the movie, Beom-sik Jeong, used SELDI as a GoPro video rig and outfitted each actor with a SELDI and 2 GoPro Hero Session cameras. His goal was to capture POV footage from each of the actors and selfie video at the same time. This way movie goers would be able to experience the events on screen along with the actors in real-time.

Because the SELDI is wearable, the actors were able to keep their hands free during filming. This allowed them to carry flashlights, larger camcorders and interact with their environment and co-stars.

SELDI allowed the actors to record POV and selfie video while keeping their hands free to use flashlights, hand-held camcorders and 360° cameras.

The GoPro cameras were stacked and mounted on top of each other using a combination of standard GoPro mounts and custom mounts.  

You can create the same GoPro rig setup using the included Super Bolt and an additional male-to-male 1/4” - 20 adapter (not included).

HANDS-FREE POV HAS NEVER BEEN THIS EASY 

4-steps and 30 seconds is all it takes to start recording POV videos.

STABILIZE YOUR CAMERA IN HALF THE TIME 

Setting up a stabilizer is hard work. SELDI makes it easier. 

The SELDI support arm is adjustable and acts as counterweight giving you the right balance. (note: smartphones and setups with lots of accessories may need counterweights)

LIGHTWEIGHT AND ULTRAPORTABLE 

SELDI is easy to carry and fits inside most backpacks and large totes. This makes it perfect for camping, hiking, a day at the beach, or documenting your adventures around the world.

The included body strap provides extra support when wearing the SELDI. It helps reduce shakiness in your videos. Use the body strap if you’re walking long distances, moving around a lot, or if you want to secure the SELDI to your body while recording. 

The body strap’s flexible fabric stretches to fit most body shapes and sizes. Velcro fasteners also let you adjust the tightness. And, you can wear the body strap over most clothing.

The body strap can also be used as a carry strap when you’re not using the SELDI.

Have questions? Curious about how the SELDI works?


The included accessories work with most smartphones and action cameras available today. But, if your smartphone or action camera requires different mounting hardware please make sure it uses 1/4” - 20 mounts. 

ADDITIONAL REWARD INFO 

3rd Party Accessories Info

SELDI comes with several accessories to help you make the best mobile videos possible. These accessories are not produced by the SELDI Team and are subject to change based on our ability to source these products from our suppliers.

When you receive your SELDI and the accessories don’t match the pictures listed on the Kickstarter campaign, don’t freak out. It means that we weren’t able to secure the exact model listed.

If you’re missing an accessory please feel free to contact us.

Warranty

Good news! The SELDI comes with a 12-month limited warranty that covers any manufacturer defects.

But, we cannot provide any warranty against damages to equipment used with or mounted to the SELDI when it’s in use. So, please take care of your smartphone/camera and equipment when using the SELDI.

Also, there is NO WARRANTY for the included accessories. We are not the manufacture of these accessories so we are not able to warranty them.

If you need any help with your SELDI or need to file a warranty claim, please contact us.

We’re an international two-man team that's been working night and day to make our startup dreams come true. We’ve invested a lot of hours, drank buckets of coffee, and ate more ramen than we want to think about. 

We’ve worked so hard because we want it to be easier for you to record videos with your smartphone. We know that there’s a movie director in everyone. And to bring that director out, all that's needed are the right tools.

Your smartphone has the most powerful camera you've ever owned. Use that camera to film and record the stories in your life.

Be courageous. Be adventurous. Be a director.

PREVIOUS CROWDFUNDING EXPERIENCE 

This team has previous success in delivering crowdfunding rewards to supporters. The SELDI team has: 

  • Ran 3 Wadiz crowdfunding campaigns in South Korea
  • Ran 1 Makuake crowdfunding campaign in Japan
  • Shipped rewards to more than 2,000 supporters

We’ve had a long and challenging road to get here but here we are. We’ve finalized the design of the SELDI, and are ready for mass production. 

The money raised on Kickstarter will go to manufacturing, sourcing the included accessories, and shipping the SELDI to our supporters.

Here’s a breakdown of how we got here.

 

Risks and challenges

Any project may encounter unexpected delays in the manufacturing and shipping of rewards.

That’s why we’ve created a conservative timeline for delivering rewards to you. We’ve also tried to account for any short delays that may arise. But, with all products being mass produced and based on the volume of orders received, unexpected delays may occur. If this happens, we promise to communicate on a regular schedule with you to keep you up to date on the entire process.

We’ve already laid the foundation for our manufacturing and shipping processes. Our previous experiences delivering crowdfunding rewards to our South Korean and Japanese supporters has taught us a lot. And based on these experiences, we believe we can start shipping SELDI to our Kickstarter supporters in June of 2018.
