I have found that the auto-looping feature that Vine offers is perfect for showcasing my Derby then and now videos. Although it has limited resolution they work quite well......

My first ever Vine video. My out of control Lawn!

Now I have an iPhone6 I am able to try out new things and I have now started using Vine. If you are not sure what Vine is, its a video platform like Youtube BUT the big difference is that your video is limited to 7 seconds and is a square format. This mean that you have to be creative when you capture your footage. Because the video also automatically loops over and over you also have to consider the last frame and will it match the first frame so in my video I had to think about the starting shot and make my final clip end at the same angle as the start so it loops nicely.

Here is my first ever "planed" Vine video : "Thank God for my Flymo Mower"

The cat you can see at the end is called Tina.
