Beyond the Vine

Vines are a format to squeeze the most funny, beautiful, breathtaking moments into. Defying traditional narrative with their format, they’re a lot like trailers. And like a great trailer, they make you want to watch the movie. With this beta release, a Vine can now be a trailer that points directly to a mini-movie.

I worked with a small in-house team to create an instructional video pinned to every user's feed to explain the new #BeyondtheVine feature.

Select stills

The announcement video was hidden behind a "Cover Vine" with a "Watch More" button in the lower corner. With the main objective of having users click the button to watch the full video, I created an eye-catching, perfectly-looping Vine meant to draw attention from all users and simultaneously point out the new feature.

Supporting Splash Page

Accompanying the announcement video, we created a simple splash page where users could sign up for Beta access.

The Process

With zero budget, our team of three shot and produced everything in-house simply using colored paper, our phones, and our coworker's hands. After collaborating with our Marketing PM to draft a script, I created the storyboard, art directed the shoot, then edited and produced the video for launch.
