Whether we like it or not – it looks like vertical videos are taking over the social media. In fact, the majority of videos on Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and other platforms are vertical rather than horizontal. So, if you want to start creating vertical videos for your social channels, these eight tips from Landon Bytheway will help you to nail it.
Vertical videos seem to be the future, whether we like it or not. It all started with Instagram and Snapchat, and even Arri and Samsung have joined the trend. However, the arguments against it are still strong and the debate between vertical and horizontal video seems never-ending at this point. But, a brilliant comic from xkcd seems to have the ultimate solution!
So, Samsung has gone and done it. They’ve singlehandedly destroyed the “You don’t watch TV vertically do you? So, why do you shoot video vertically?” argument. Yes, they’ve announced a vertical TV. And it costs $1,600 (not $16,000 as some sources are reporting).
