Just Say No To Vertical Videos

Filed under: Cameras — Laura Moncur @ 9:33 am

Every time you shoot a video with your phone (heck, I’ve even accidentally done it with a camera), there is the temptation to accidentally shoot a Vertical Video. Not know what I’m talking about? Watch this public service announcement.

The first video I ever posted on YouTube was an accidental Vertical Video.

Because it was shot on a camera, it was sideways and I had to use an app to rotate it. With the iPhone, it will be right side up, but look incredibly silly when showing it to family and friends, like this video.

You can’t escape the feeling that you’re missing something on either side of the frame and viewing the video is an exercise in frustration. Keeping the video sideways is even worse.

It’s not artistic. It’s just bad filmography that gives you a crick in your neck. LEARN how to use your device. Just Say No To Vertical Videos.
