Vine Videos for Twitter – Make a Scene

Vine is a video-making app for iPhone and iPad app. It was recently acquired by Twitter and allows you to share videos right in your Twitter feed – no links to click, no need to leave your feed – Pretty great, huh? There is a catch though, just like Twitter, Vine wants to keep it brief, the videos can only be 6 seconds or less!

This obviously cause some challenges – how can you get your message through in 6 seconds? Is there really any use of a 6 second video? Sure there is, I think Vine can be used in multiple ways, for creating and sharing content such as:

* Create short tutorials
* Trailer / teasers of longer videos
* Present sneak-peaks of products
* Show behind-the-scene footage before or during an event
* Showcase highlights from a fashion show, trade show or conference
* Shoot short updates from your workplace
* Make a short-film
* Create an animations
* Show off your cooking skills and share your favorite receips

Have you tried Vine? What do you use it for?


A 8mm Time Travel

I usually prefer pictures over video – you have more control over the outcome, it’s easier to edit (for me anyways) and the there are a lot of good camera apps to choose from (so good in fact, that these days I hardly ever use my regular camera). But sometimes a video is better suited for capturing a situation and saving a memory. I prefer to use the 8mm video making app to shot my videos, since it gives them a hint of nostalgia and creates a notion of capturing a travel in time. 8mm comes specked with lots of old school filters (such as 1920 , 50s , 60s 70s and film noir) and you can even add the sound of the film wheel or make the picture “jump” on the film roll for an even more authentic style. Once the movie is made, you are two-touches away from posting it on YouTube – a great mix of “old” and new!
