Steve Jobs movieBack in March we talked about how a “flip book effect” became “the world’s first Instagram film experience.” Given the advancements in video recording and sharing, not only by Instagram, but similar platforms, like Vine, my excitement seems cute now — like when I played Star Fox on Super Nintendo for the first time (“How are these graphics possible?”) And as always, new ways are being found to use Instagram, like in the case of Jobsthe Steve Jobs film starring Ashton Kutcher, being the first to use the app to upload a trailer. Are we about to see apps like Instagram and Vine become marketing and advertising platforms? More »

vineWhen Vine, Twitter’s video-sharing app, was introduced earlier this year, it was expected to be a simple add-on to Twitter, i.e., a way to share short videos as supplements to tweets (“Hey guyz, check me out at the grocery store. :) lol #justinbieber”). The app, which allows for 6 seconds of looping video and no retakes or editing beyond internal jump cuts, took off, and filmmakers like David Lynch and Adam Goldberg made art and comedy out of the app’s inherent limitations. On Monday night, your humble correspondent went to the Upper East Side of Manhattan to meet with Vine master Kyle Williams (aka Keelayjams) and learned some of his secrets. Click below to learn how Kyle makes his Vines, and some tricks to put Vine to use for you as an indie filmmaker. More »

Video thumbnail for vimeo video 'Video on Instagram' - nofilmschoolThis doesn’t have to be confusing, so let’s briefly recap: various apps and services have quested to achieve the status of being the ‘Instagram of Video.’ Instagram, of course, is known for essentially being the ‘Twitter of Photography.’ Twitter itself has stepped up as a favored contender in this quest with its 6-second-maximum micro-video service Vine. Now, Instagram itself is offering ‘Video on Instagram,’ which allows up to 15 seconds maximum micro-videos. All of which is — well, good — and hopefully fun, but how viable are these apps for the creation of artistic content? More »

Ryan Gosling Wont Eat His CerealVine, the Twitter-owned iOS app that lets you take, upload, and now embed 6 seconds of video, has been making the rounds since it was released back in January of this year. Tribeca held a contest for filmmakers to make movies with Vine, but similar to Twitter itself when it began, we haven’t quite figured out its true purpose. That is, until now. Ryan McHenry, who directed a BAFTA-winning short film called Zombie Musical, has created something of true genius with the app. Behold, Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat Cereal, the very reason Vine, and possibly the internet, was created: More »

If you can’t make it out to the Tribeca Film Festival this year, you still have a chance to catch the show. They have announced that they will be offering programming for the Tribeca Online Festival as well as video-on-demand options in order to engage new audiences. Not only that, but they are also holding their very first #6SECFILMS Vine competition which they hope will expand their desired extra-festival participation. This will be the fourth year of the Tribeca Online Festival, “a digital platform that offers front row access to exclusive Festival content and new storytelling opportunities.” Essentially, you can go to the TFF, but you don’t have to get on a plane or change out of your pajamas. Also, with the addition of the Vine competition, the communities of both film-lovers and filmmakers, either participating in house or online, will all come together under one roof. More »

A few months ago Twitter launched a new iOS app called Vine that is aiming to take a piece of the video sharing pie. Similar to the company’s 140 character limit, Vine is a video sharing service limited to videos that are no more than 6 seconds in length. There have been plenty of interesting applications for the service, and Tribeca is trying to take advantage of the storytelling possibilities by starting a contest that challenges you to come up with a short film in 6 seconds that has a beginning, middle, and end. Think you’re up for it? Read on for more details. More »

Twitter is “the internet’s SMS.” Instagram is the Twitter of pictures. Some app somewhere is prophesied to be “the Instagram of Video.” I’ve used epic words for social media’s ‘cinemaminigram’ before, because it’s apparently that big of a deal — or it may just be YouTube. Then again, if Instagram is Twitter for photos, but Facebook nabbed Instagram — all while ‘Instagram for Video’ is still out there — what’s a Twitter to do? The next best thing, or better: Twitter has just dropped Vine for iOS. It’s a lot like Instagram, but for 6 second looping videos. Given that Twitter already is, well, the Instagram of words, this app could be the ‘IoV.’ Is this saga at the beginning of its end? More »
