For Christmas this year, my Mother-in-Law bought my wife a brand new GoPro Hero 3+. Since January isn’t exactly high season for action sports of the kind these things are typically used for, it’s been sitting in its box on her desk for six weeks.
I decided to dust it off to shoot a timelapse video of our meager snowpocalypse in D.C. The view from our apartment window is not great, at least when it comes to snow accumulation, but the finished package is doing quite well on social media.
Facebook is all about pushing their video platform these days, so posting the video there has generated more views than we’ve gotten for far better, well-produced videos on Youtube. All social media folks should take note.
