Platforms like Instagram and Facebook show us how it’s done. Short video clips and other animated GIFs took over social networks in 2015 and thanks to Snapchat, Vine, and other apps, using such mediums is only becoming more popular. One of these apps was on everyone’s lips in 2015: Snapchat. This app allows the user to record 10-second videos to provide a short glimpse into their day. Since these videos are automatically deleted after 24 hours, all kinds of strange things can be seen. On platforms like Vine, humour stands in the foreground. The goal of these elaborate 6-second clips is to bring a smile to the viewer’s face. To do this, a real Vine pro will first create a storyboard to perfectly plan every millisecond of the clip. Instagram, on the other hand, is very often used by the beauty industry to share things like a 30-second clip showing viewers some make-up tips. After the time-lapsed video, you can learn things like how to give yourself a smokey eyes look.
