Instagram was hyping it as a youtube killer! But it flops I feel like?
I don’t really know why cause I already hate instagram in the first place.
Why do you think instagram, the 2nd most powerful video app in the world, flopped when giving people a new platform?
It’s just more liberty, why won’t you take it?
My bet is imposing vertical video:
a big big mistake that made any filmaker cringe the f out of it for ever. Vertical video is denying every rules of cinematography & it’s kinda awkward. It was fun to see people try for the first week tho.
Like Smosh tried cutting their video into 2 squares & putting the one on top of the other, it was very clever actually but it just didn’t work as well as horizontal video.
It’s a phone you can turn it however you want, why would they do that?
Even in movies, rule number 1 is you should put everything important in or next to the square in the middle. That’s from tv being square before, you just had this square & so they developped a entire art around it.
But whadaya think?
