Social Media Videos

When creating a promotional video campaign social media videos are now at the forefront. We used to get calls from people that wanted website video or even YouTube videos. Now we get calls for those asking for social media videos and more specifically, FaceBook videos and Instagram videos. Companies that advertise their services on broadcast television and cable are also looking to social media. You can buy advertising and target specific to a specific demographic or even professional. You can also just create video content to share with your followers. Some times that content can be shot from a smartphone. Other companies want the footage to look great. That is where Blare Films comes in. We create great-looking content shot in 4K resolution, that can be re-size, re-used, and repurposed. Below you can out the samples of our work with some important notes.

1 – Know the social media platform sizes.

Here is our Social Media Videos Promo

Once it is uploaded to Instagram, it is automatically cropped and looses its 16X9 aspect ratio. The result is a square video that is easier to view on a smartphone. It is important to be aware of this when editing your video. Here you can see the difference:

Here is a time-lapse we shot in 4K. As you can see it was crop to display vertically 9X16 so it can fill the screen on a smartphone when viewing it on the Instagram app:

2 – Know How to Frame Your Shots

We filming a majority of this footage in 4K. As you see this also display vertically. When shooting it the camera operator needs to keep everything in the center.


3 – Learn How to Get the Most of Your Footage

Keep in mind that social media videos don’t have to be long. Some platforms limit you to 1 minute. Most people scrolling through their social media feeds won’t spend a lot of time seeing a video playout completely. That means you can create a lot of content from just one shot. 10-15 second videos with a single text message are plenty.

Livonlabs hired us to film some great looking footage with our 6K Ultra HD Red Epic Dragon camera. For that single shoot, we were able to produce many different short videos. Some “product shots,” “how to-s” and “FAQs.” The following are some of those samples.

These next two videos are the same shot. The latter was edited months later with additional supporting text and graphics:


These are the RFQs:

We know that we are in a constant cycle of blood sugar surging and crashing. Now it is worth remembering that we have done little to help maintain our insulin sensitivity throughout these ebbs and flows. The effects on our metabolism were forgotten. 👏⠀ .⠀ .⠀ What was the result? Enormous glucose surpluses piled up — the most stupendous in history. Where did those surpluses go? They went into fat deposits, likely around the waistline, because we probably consumed a megadose of carbs while sitting at our desks to power through an afternoon. The glucose was not transported to cell mitochondria for conversion to energy for working muscles because no muscles were being worked. 👏⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Then came the crash. You know the story. Surpluses became idle. The pancreas unleashed insulin to control the excess blood sugar that would otherwise be toxic. It did this so much that its sensitivity waned. Insulin was over-produced, preventing the breakdown of fat. 👏⠀ .⠀ .⠀ And here we are today. 👏⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Yes, I have a definite program for maintaining healthy blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity. I have done it, and I am doing it today in the metabolic systems of many who supplement with me. 👏⠀ .⠀ .⠀ My program is based upon this simple principle: transporting glucose to the cell mitochondria where it is needed for energy, therefore not letting it accumulate in the blood to cause constant insulin over-production and become fat deposits. 👏⠀ .⠀ .⠀ I pledge you, I pledge myself, to a new deal for your metabolic system. Give me your help to win in this crusade to keep your insulin sensitivity and blood sugar at their optimal levels. 👏⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #thenewaladeal #alphalipoicacid #insulin #bloodsugar
