When you’re deciding how to film your video, it’s important to consider your target audience and where they’ll be watching. If your content is going on your Instagram story, keep it vertical. If it’s going on YouTube, make it horizontal.
Video should be shot and viewed in landscape mode — that’s the "long way" instead of the "tall way," the orientation that mimics your HDTV screen.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is it easy to shoot a portrait video?
Shooting in portrait can sometimes be a restrictive format. Those new to capturing video on their mobile devices just lift and shoot. The ergonomics make it easy for the device to be held vertically. Yet people appear to forget they have articulated wrists. Handy for both filming and viewing.
