Through features and apps like Instagram Reels and Tik Tok, filming videos vertically has quickly become relevant. The popular, ‘snackable’ content of short-form video is designed for vertical filming and this is something you need to keep in mind with your content.
Simply transferring horizontally filmed videos over can lead to your viewer having to turn the screen or the content being surrounded by black bars and appearing small on the screen. You need to make sure you either film in vertical or edit the video to fit.
Filming in vertical is the easiest option, but when you cannot do so, such as taking a clip from a pre-existing video, remember when editing the exact size needed for each platform.
