Summer Video Tip: Creating Social Media Videos

By August 7, 2019 blog

Communicating by video is one of the most effective ways to reach your audience these days. And it doesn’t require a large production.

Here are some tips for creating short videos to use on social media.

Always shoot in landscape mode on your smartphone to fill the entire screen.

Keep the videos short – Twitter only allows 90-second videos.

Shoot them with your smartphone – Not only can you make small edits on the phone, but you can also upload to social media immediately.

As for your video kit, besides your smartphone, get a mic, tripod and LED light (all of these are designed to be used with your smartphone). And that’s all you need to create high-quality social videos anywhere you go.
