Some handy tips from Ian Padgham thanks to Nokia:

Tips for filming

Ian Padgham has some handy tips for anyone looking to go further with Vine.

Use a tripod

This is especially helpful when filming stop motion videos. There are a number of tripods available on the market that are designed to hold a smartphone. The Nokia Lumia 1020 also has a Nokia Camera Grip accessory.

Use plenty of light

Filming in the dark won’t give you the same results as filming in the light. More light means better visibility for your viewing audience.


Take your time

Don’t just film something and upload it instantly; take your time with it. Pause the video and take a creative break. When you’re ready, go back into Vine and carry on.

Train your tap

Don’t tab down on the screen too hard, practice doing it gently. The harder the tap, the more phone shake you’ll encounter which will certainly be noticeable in a stop motion video.

Use earphones with a built in mic for better audio

Plug earphones with a mic into your phone when making a Vine video, as audio will be included in the final video.

Review before posting

Once you’ve finished your Vine video it’s worth reviewing it before you share it with the world. This will save you having to delete it later if you realize you don’t like it.
