The problem with Snapchat.

Snapchat is something that everyone is using these days, at least from the vibe at school. I think that Snapchat’s fine, apart from one little thing. Vertical video. Now, I don’t want to be a hater of vertical video, as it does have iots uses, but vertical is a format that is much more suited towards pictures of people where the face is the main focus, and since the face is vertical, taking vertical photos of it make perfect sense. The only problem is that with video, there is more of a feeling of immersion that has to be created. In video the goal is to make you feel like you’re a part of the experience, like you’re actually there. And to give that effect you need the background, you need the focus, you need the FOV, you need it to be wide. And if Snapchat offered the option of horizontal video, I’d probably use it.
