What’s the most fun a web-mediaholic can have in six seconds? That’s right: Vine.
If you’re still getting into the groove of the new social app by Twitter, check out some users you have to follow.
Pinot is the official Twitter videographer, and his posts are always a bit more artistic than the standard Vine fare. He utilizes experimental techniques that include hand-drawn elements and the occasional stop-motion animation. Follow Pinot if you are looking for something a little more creative.
Video producer and artist Ian Padgham is another fellow from the creative realm of Twitter. Most of his work has to do with stop motion, but he obviously has a love for smartphone cinematography!
Daniel Ojanlatva is yet another artsy type of Vine user, and his posts are some of the most creative out there. As of late, it appears he’s not been as active as he usually is, but as shown above, his Vines sometimes even use modern technology for a twist on classic stop motion.
Sometimes inappropriate, but always funny, KingBach is currently the most-followed Viner out there! His videos typically consist of short skits or jokes that are both unique and in tune with the hottest vine trends.
Former teen TV star and current big screen actor, Josh Peck has taken to Vine as a means to reignite the fire of his fans. Not to say that Mr. Peck ever dropped off the map, but Vine appears to have helped him reconnect with his fans in a much more relevant way. His Vines — despite some of his most recent movie roles — showcase his strong sense of humor and comedy genius.
Thomas Sanders, believe it or not, is still in high school. However, his Vines are the perfect mix of silly and funny, and no matter your age, chances are you’ll find his unique type of funny worth watching. Consider his small-time productions to be a hybrid of Broadway musicals, Vaudeville, and Primetime television.
What if Batman became a full-time father? BatDad answers this question with his series of videos that depict Batman as a typical suburban father of young children. By combining a Christian Bale Bat-voice, a cheap Walmart max, and the most adorable kids in the world, BatDad is worth the follow.
Long ago, filmmakers used primitive techniques to incorporate special effects into their films such as stopping the camera, adjusting the set, and starting it back up again. With Vine, that’s come back! Charlie Love uses these techniques to create interesting, beautiful videos worth watching.
Why do we like Jerome Jarre? Not sure. But he’s very funny. As a matter of fact, that’s what he’s all about. His videos are are all about bringing humor into real life situations. Does it sometimes come off as obnoxious? Yes. But if you open up a bit, you’ll find it hilarious.
Vine was released on January 24th of this year, so let’s be honest — it’s still young. While the app isn’t exactly what you would consider a full-service social network (it’s only an extension of Twitter, after all), it’s definitely growing in popularity. By following Vine itself, you’ll be able to stay clued in on what’s next. Granted, as of right now, the official Vine account doesn’t have much content, but just you wait.
Which are your favorite Vine users out there?
