Video Tech Tip: How to create a video for social media sites

by Team Sony 02/08/2011

Check out this video from Sony Bloggie spokesman, aka Mystery Guitar Man, Joe. It’s great inspiration for any of you thinking of adding more video to your social communications.

Maybe you’re mannerisms, gestures and expressions aren’t as big as Mystery Guitar Man’s but even simple things like a glimpse of your surroundings or a smile can help your video not only be more engaging but also can help convey your point.

Quick tips for your social media video
• Start with a simple video to share an experience with friends and family on Facebook.
• Use an mp4 format camera. They’re small and easy to take with you for quick capture and the mp4 format is great for easy upload.
• Hold your shot for at least 4 seconds when you’re catching your surroundings. An example from Joe’s video is the sea life shot he took while in a submarine. You’ll thank yourself if you edit.
• If you’re ready to venture outside your Facebook community to share short video online check out sites like Twitvid, Yfrog and Posterous. You can even upload up to 30 second clips on Flickr.
