The Broadcast Journalism class went out into the field this month to produce a video story on sledding.  We also came back with an Instagram video of our very own Dan Swank skiing down the hill at Brittain Lake.  He’s hot dogging it as he jumps the ‘Rock’ at the bottom of the hill.  SWANK IT!  That mean’s ‘cool’.

We shot on GroPro and DSLR and edited a short little video to share on social media platforms including Instagram and Vine.  We’ve posted the HD video here for you to check out and share.  We advocate sharing video in FULL HD.  Instagram and Vine are fun, but the formats fail to embrace HD video.

This is a great time to advocate using your smartphone to shoot video in the correct aspect ration of 16:9.   Instagram and Vine foster Vertical Video Syndrome (VVS).  Please!  Help stop the spread of VVS!  SAY NO TO VERTICLE VIDEO SYNDROME!
