Use special effects to wow your followers.

There are no effects or filters in the app so make your own. The Vine audience is baffled when they have no idea how you did something. I've turned all my living room furniture and the camera sideways to make it look like I was floating away off of my couch. I made a little rig with an iPad and an angled piece of glass over it to "project" video and words into a scene. Little screw-on iPhone lenses and color filters are fun. Fishing line is my favorite tool to make things move in real time (rather than using stop-motion techniques). It's better to put the effort in and set up interesting special effects than to fake it by filming a video edited in iMovie and Vining the computer screen.

Vine: "Taking a lil snooze" turned my living room sideways. Here's a behind-the-scenes pic.
