From Blake Whitman, Vimeo's VP of Creative Development --
"One of the main goals of the Vimeo community is to embrace the creative nature of the users. We encourage them to ask how something was made, with what equipment and software, in order to inspire others to go out and be able to expand on their filmmaking abilities. It’s that opportunity to interact and see what cameras and editing tools are being used that makes the Vimeo community such a collaborative environment.
We at Vimeo wanted to say thanks to our creative community by offering them something that was both useful and could not be found anywhere else on the web. Vimeo Perks is a new member rewards program for our existing PRO and/or Plus community that provides unique discounts on camera, software and video accessory products. Our goal is to help our premium members take the next step in their filmmaking and creative journey -- without breaking the bank. The Vimeo Perks program will offer great discounts on a wide variety of products that can range from 5-25% off the real world price.
We partnered with companies the Vimeo community knows and trusts to offer great products at a uniquely discounted rates. Partners include B&H, with select packages of cameras and accessories, as well as great products and software from Kessler Crane, Red Giant, GarageCube and Letus.
