Vine-1-1 Parody App for Simultaneous 911 Calls While Recording Emergencies

Parodies come in all shapes and sizes. Now, they’re in the form of app concepts. This one mocks the nature of recording real life emergencies rather than acting on those emergencies – like calling 911 or making a vine of a truck jump a highway guardrail. While this app isn’t real, it brings our attention to the strange and peculiar age of mobile journalism, where everyone is expected to show and share, rather than act and care. Read more

HowAboutWe Uses Vine to Promote Book

Online dating site HowAboutWe has released a new dating guide and to promote the Book, the site has produced a series of videos on Vine.

Over the next two weeks, the site will release a series of six-second videos through the video sharing app which reenact different sections of the book Modern Dating: A Field Guide from the Experts at HowAboutWe. For instance, one video illustrates the don’ts of choosing a photo for an online dating profile. (Don’t include a photo of yourself with someone else’s arm around you, don’t pucker your lips and don’t hold a baby).

The book is a dating guide for modern daters and includes advice on when to call, who pays and how far to go on the first date. Here is more about the book from the dating site:

Modern relationships are…complicated. Or so they seem. The dating “rules” of the past — the ones that dictated when and how and what to do in a romantic setting — no longer apply, leaving even the savviest of us feeling slightly disoriented. Dating today feels hard, when it shouldn’t.

David Cross’s Latest Feature Film Debuts in its Entirety on Vine

Independent film company Oscillope Labs is debuting its feature film, It’s a Disaster, in its entirety on Vine – six seconds at a time. Since the video looping app only allows users to create videos using a mobile iOS device, the video clips are recordings of the film shown on a home television. The film stars Julia Stiles, America Ferrera, David Cross (of Arrested Development), and Todd Berger (Kip from Parks and Recreation). The story follows a couples brunch that goes awry when dirty bombs threaten the city.

The film is set to be released for digital on-demand viewing on March 5 followed by a limited release in theaters. According to director Todd Berger, “Jean-Luc Godard once said that he pities French cinema because it has no money and American cinema because it has no ideas. Well this is certainly an idea.” The company’s humorous press release states that Oscillope Labs is aiming to bring its media to as many media as possible: Read more

Use VineGifR to Turn Your Vines Into Animated GIFs
