Company Launches

Hi everyone! We're Runbo and David, and we’re building Magic Hour, a video creation platform that makes it easy for anyone to create professional-quality videos.

Imagine swapping your face onto Anne Hathaway’s in The Devil Wears Prada, or transforming Michael Jordan into a marble statue shooting a game-winner in the Colosseum.

The Problem

Many creators, professionals, and businesses struggle to produce enough engaging, high-quality videos due lack of video production expertise and constraints on time and budget.

The Solution

We take the best open-source AI models, figure out the best settings, and put them in a user-friendly UX so anyone can create high-quality videos in three easy steps: choose a template, customize it, and share it.

About Us

Our moms are best friends and introduced us in 1997 (left). Magic Hour is born out of experiences helping our parents market their small businesses, where we learned how hard it is to create engaging video content.
