Imagine if video and music industry professionals had their very own version of IMDb/LinkedIn. Launching at VidCon, the new social-crediting platform NeonGrid aims to deliver just that. Allowing those in the industry to easily credit themselves and others for their work, NeonGrid launched out of beta mode today to bring professionals a place to showcase their accomplishments and easily share them with others.

NeonGrid is already working with Machinima and Big Frame, both of whom have interest in their individual talent affiliating NeonGrid profiles with those of the companies. YouTubers who have used the service to tag themselves for their work include Olga Kay and Lauren Elizabeth.

The platform will promote certain members by featuring them on its homepage. It will also allow users to tag industry peers to cross-promote work and encourage additional collaborations.

John W. Gibbons, who previously worked at both IMDb and, co-founded and serves as the CEO of NeonGrid. He explained, “The film and television industries have IMDb and employment-based industries have LinkedIn. However, neither are optimized for project-based creative.”

He continued, “Today, there are more than 25 million people in the video and music industries who do not have a platform that allows them to credit their own work or find others with whom they would like to collaborate. NeonGrid makes it possible for anyone to have a real-time crediting and attribution platform, allowing any entertainment specialist to better build a multi-media resume truly representing all work and all collaborations.”

NeonGrid’s co-founders also include Greg Delson and Tarn Rodewald. It plans to form further partnerships through other verticals in the video and music industry.
