Cinegenix LLC is a Seattle based app development company with a focus on front end video acquisition for the smart phone platform. Co-founders of Cinegenix, Tony Tibbetts and Neill Barham, first met as students at the Vancouver Film School. Opinionated opposites, their grudging respect quickly turned into friendship and they have collaborated frequently since film school. Less than two months after the release of the iPhone 4, Tony had already drawn up the initial designs for the FiLMiC Pro, convinced by the new camera's high definition capabilities yet frustrated by the primitive levels of control. Neill saw the opportunity to rewrite the "prosumer" camcorder market by turning everyone into backyard auteurs for the price of a cup of coffee, thus FiLMiC Pro was born.
