I use to watch one video on YouTube then 2 hours and a few dozen videos later, I’d wonder how the heck I got to this tutorial on how to complete some random task. Now that I’m on the road more and mobile internet connection doesn’t provide the connectivity I need for most YouTube videos, I’ve replaced them with Vine videos. For six seconds, Vine users post short videos usually in the form of a prank, a visual effects trick or just a quick show-off-the-moment selfie. Although these videos are wildly entertaining, there are also some hidden gems with uber creativity.
Tom Shea’s Vine videos have caught my attention. A Utah-based artist, Tom is a professional graphic designer and photographer but his favorite creative outlet is Vine. His work started out like many users, with personal videos of his activities and hanging with his dogs. As he pushed his creativity, his work was featured in Vine’s “Editors Picks.”
As other artists also pushed their creativity, we began to see more surreal videos of fantasy like landscapes and ingenious manipulations of light.
The Creator’s Project interviewed Tom and he was kind enough to provide us with his favorite Viners. After spending some time checking out each one I can see where his inspiration comes from. There’s an abundance of creativity in the artists below.
Another thing he mentioned, which I was very surprised for him to tell us, is that he doesn’t use any editing software.
I like to keep my Vines all-nautral…I’ve learned better how to create the atmosphere I want using the in-app features such as focus lock and the assistive touch feature on the iPhone. With Vine, I think you get out of it what you put in.
