Tantrwm ponder Portrait vs Landscape

Why does Portrait vs Landscape matter? The advice for shooting great video on a mobile phone has always been ‘to hold your phone sideways’.  But times and tastes change! The BBC’s current affairs app promotes and enables portrait video, easier captioning and lets users swipe left or right to access other stories.

MTV UK have a new team “…with all video now shot in vertical or square formats to cater to Snapchat and Facebook news-feed environments…”

An increasing amount of videos are displaying in a square format but it doesn’t mean people aren’t going to be turning their TV’s on their side!

We say wide-screen is still be best option in most situations, but if you have good reason to do something different, go for it.
