About This Class

been used to taking photos and videos on instagram and now it's become something more? something else?!

yep, instagram stories has arrived (some saying it's a duplicate of snapchat) and we have something new to understand. i've never had an up to date smartphone so i'm a bit behind the scenes with technology when it comes to recording on the go with the new modern phones - i'm still rocking my ipad 2 mini retina and desperate need of an upgrade!

we take a look around the new feature and hopefully give you a few pointers about how you can intergrate it into your day to help you storytell what you are up to and to understand the 24hr format a little easier.

in this course. . ..

- looking around the interface using reflector 2 from my ipad
- getting into a routine - 24hr window before the content vanishes
- mobility issues to consider for recording structure for each day
- looking at stats and engagement and considerations there to increase it!

i recorded the screen from my ipad using a great application called reflector2 if your looking to make similar videos. it's a great app for the mac you should grab it and give it a go! :)

the opportunity to push content to an audience waiting for updates is huge here especially if you create content 'ahead of time' - thinking a process of having remote workers making dedicated portrait infographics or 'time sensitive' content to really add to the story making process.

don't forget to follow me and say hello! -

------ my backstory ------

currently saving to buy a laser cutter for co-working and co-creation pod called apiary and get mobile driving a vw t5 transporter across the uk and europe

sold my domain name to evan williams from twitter (they were building medium) for five figures. a great year!

assisted a town called ‘phil campbell’ in alabama (bbc news) which was a life changing event for me in terms of what i wanted to do with the rest of my life

helped lifecast from sleepydog get into the first apple app store to be part of the first 500 apps ever launched worldwide – proud social media moment.

bought a domain, (me-d-em) and ever since I’ve bartered my time as a transmedia digital artist in the social media realm. a brand advocate for word of mouth agencies from behind the lens of a mobile phone or camera.

during regularly drinking sessions at the abbey in burton on Trent I ended up on the team time episode of history hunters which is now unfortunately on youtube
