How Do We Do It? What Works in Production?
Stop Motion • Plan Your Shoot (do the math) • Do a Few Test-Shots • Lock Down Your Camera (phone) • Shoot Stills & Convert (instagram-only) • Consistent Lighting?
Before and After • It’s all in the cut • Tripod helps - need to continue the exact shot • Similar to stop motion • Best to do with a partner • Distract with sound • Practice!
The Super-Short Story • What’s your goal? • Define your “plot.” • Who is your character? • Craft your accompanying message. • K.I.S.S.
How Do People See It? • YouTube Compilations • Hashtags • Building a Network of Followers
YouTube Compilations • • Works great to collect #hashtag videos and share • Allows you to curate and moderate #hashtag • Better for embedding • Eg. Six Second Science Works great for Vine Videos on theme
Hashtags • Let your community make videos for you • Connect to specific communities • Track conversations across social media • App-specific • Nobody “owns” a hashtag (ex. #btv #psfr #teenytiny)
Building a Network of Followers • Like all other social media o Quid pro quo o Be a human being o Ask for shares o Consistent, quality content • Use your other channels • Experimentation is rewarded
