Magisto, the world’s most popular video storytelling platform with 65 million users, has announced the launch a special Jerry Garcia editing style to celebrate the release of the Jerry Garcia Band – On Broadway Act One: October 28th, 1987 3 CD set.
The first installment of a new Jerry Garcia archival series celebrating his magical 13-night Broadway run, Jerry Garcia Band – On Broadway Act One: October 28th, 1987, chronicles three complete, previously unreleased sets at NYC’s Lunt-Fontanne Theatre: the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band’s early and late sets, and the Jerry Garcia Band’s electric evening set.
To celebrate both the release of Jerry Garcia Band – On Broadway Act One and the 50th anniversary of the Grateful Dead, who will make their final performance this weekend in Chicago, Magisto has created a special “Jerry Garcia” editing theme so that fans can turn their personal photos and videos, whether they’re at the shows or not, into beautiful, personal movies set to music from the album, expressing their love for the music of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead.
“More than any other band in history the Grateful Dead was founded in the spirit of sharing and community, which continues to this day,” said Trixie Garcia, Jerry’s daughter. “I’m thrilled that Magisto is adding to that legacy by giving fans a creative new way to share their love for the music of Jerry and the Grateful Dead.”
“Garcia’s songs are actual stories with an unusually rich sense of place, character, and story arc,” said Magisto CMO Reid Genauer. “Part of what made Jerry an icon was his ability to deliver those stories with intimacy and conviction. The Jerry Garcia editing theme on Magisto now lets fans express their own personal perspectives with Garcia’s music through our special brand of video storytelling.”
The user who shares the best Magisto movie by tagging #JerryRIPS in the title, which will be selected by the Jerry Garcia Estate, will receive a four-seat Presidential Booth for a show at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, a special Jerry Garcia merchandise package including the deluxe 3 CD set, and have their movie featured on jerrygarcia.com.
Just download Magisto for iOS, Android or Mac, choose the Jerry Garcia editing theme, select the photos and videos you’d like to use, and include #JerryRIPS in your title. Magisto’s patented artificial technology automatically selects the most compelling moments and edits them together to form a uniquely personal video story for you to celebrate the timeless music of Jerry and the Grateful Dead.
