As we’re sure you know, Twitter has acquired Vine, a way to share short, 6 second or less clips of video. Like a GIF, the few frames loop, but with audio. And, like Facebook-acquired Instagram, Vine users can follow others, who videos then show up in a feed to be shared across social media. If you don’t have an iPhone, this aggregator is a good spot to check Vine out. Our feeling is they might have rolled it out a little too quick in response to Instagram blocking their photos from appearing directly in Twitter streams (now, if you share a Instagram pic on Twitter, your followers will have to click off to Instagram to see it). And there’s the porn issue - Rule 34 people - which caused iTunes to pull the app from its featured section (it’s actually sort of hard to find now - type Twitter Vine to find it) BUT we’re excited about the possibilities and got an account. Why should you join too?

Twitter proved constraint breeds creativity - Vine adds visuals AND movement.
Brevity is the soul of wit - if Twitter enforcing 140-character posts didn’t prove that I don’t know what will convince you. A 6-second limit encourages all of us to cut the fluff and provide just the best stuff. 5 Second Films has done it successfully for years. Instagram got wildly popular for being visuals, now they’ve been one upped.

The Magic6 Ball uses Vine’s functionality to charm us here.

Since 1987 the GIF has captivated - Vine finally moves looping forward.
Vine is riffing on GIF-ing - auto-repeating every video post - while opening up the possibilities with sound and built in social utility. If social fans love the GIF (they do - the evidence is slathered all over the Internet - Tumblr in particular), imagine what they will do with its more complex offspring.

Here is Jimmy Fallon gleaming the loop.

Social moves fast - a Vine only takes 6-seconds of your (or your audience’s) time. 
There’s a lot of social media to dig through and users want to get through it fast. But they’ll gladly ingest an infinite feed of social updates, especially if its visual. Vine is video without commitment. It allows a rapid showcase of “preview” material in bite-size amounts, generating the initial interest that could lead to more interest in your brand, film, persona, whatever. 

Just like you took a tiny tour of the BRINK desert oasis above. That was painless right? 

Drawbacks to the Vine app? - There are many, for now. As of right now- there is no easy way to find a video you saw on Vine outside of the app. To share a Vine video anywhere else means hunting down the Twitter account of the creator and hoping they shared it. Even trying to share examples of Vine videos we liked for this blog post was frustrating. There are still some issues with usernames ( the easiest way to find us is to search within the app for BRINKmedia.)

QUICK TIP: We embedded our Vine video in this post with a click of the Vineit button. Vine should probably make it possible to upload to Tumblr, but until then, Vineit is the quickest, easiest way to share Vine videos on Tumblr.

Gunnar Glasses – From $68Marien van der Lelij – Graphic Designer 
Marien is either at BRINK creating cutting-edge web design, or at home taking on zombie hordes in the online world of Day Z. In either setting he uses Gunnar Glasses to increase visual function and reduce strain on his eyes. No one should spend as much time in the digital world as Marien, but anyone in front of a computer screen can benefit from Gunnar’s eye protections and enhancements.
Brush And Stylus By Princeton – $40Ally Mis – Graphic Designer
Ally is crazy adept at creating interesting digital content for BRINK clients but she still indulges the more analog arts – drawing and painting. This brush stylus combines both her digital skills and passion for painting. “This stylus is less restrictive than others, and feels more like the traditional medium.” Get this for the artist that is comfortable in the digital and well as physical spheres of creation.
Fleeces – From $8.95Kai Miller -  Producer for Web and Mobile
Not only is he producing content for web and mobile – Kai has also been poo-duecing (wow, what puns have we stooped to) a line of turd-shaped pillows.  These plush plunkers are a perfect gift for anyone that has a sense of humor (preferably of the bathroom variety) and is in need of new home décor.

This little piece of technological innovation is a “must have” for BRINK’s resident cinephile or for any other filmmaker out there.
Ostrich Pillow - $99Caroline Jackson - Social Media Director/ BRINKguide Editor
Take a vacation and dislodge yourself (temporarily) from Twitter/Facebook/Tumblr, and get some much needed shut eye. What says “leave me alone” more than a pillow you put directly on your head? De-stressing is basically guaranteed. The packaging and marketing efforts are totally cool too. Upon reaching your destination, turn that phone back on and figure out where the hell you’re going with BRINKguide. The ‘Ostrich Pillow' will have you all prepped for a serious adventure.

Take a vacation and dislodge yourself (temporarily) from Twitter/Facebook/Tumblr, and get some much needed shut eye. What says “leave me alone” more than a pillow you put directly on your head? De-stressing is basically guaranteed. The packaging and marketing efforts are totally cool too. Upon reaching your destination, turn that phone back on and figure out where the hell you’re going with BRINKguide. The ‘Ostrich Pillow' will have you all prepped for a serious adventure.

BRINK’s Ultimate Gift Guide for Tech Savvy Folks Still looking for a gift for that special someone in your life? Well you are certainly a procrastinator! Luckily BRINK is here to expose you to some things we have been into. Apps, design tools, novelty items, etc. – there is something for every tech-savvy creative on your holiday shopping list, and these are all available online.Alexis iO4, iPad Camera Connection kit, Garage Band – Under $150Joshua Belhumeur – Vice PresidentJosh, our VP, is a jack-of-all-trades. Whether it’s playing music or drumming up business for BRINK – he is tearing it up. He has some iPad app suggestions for seasoned professionals AND amateurs, to record shockingly high-quality music – all for under $150. Direct input your guitar, hook up a mic and record vocals or create samples on the fly.“It blows my mind we live in an era where you can record music on the subway to work.” - Josh
Gunnar Glasses – From $68Marien van der Lelij – Graphic Designer 
Marien is either at BRINK creating cutting-edge web design, or at home taking on zombie hordes in the online world of Day Z. In either setting he uses Gunnar Glasses to increase visual function and reduce strain on his eyes. No one should spend as much time in the digital world as Marien, but anyone in front of a computer screen can benefit from Gunnar’s eye protections and enhancements.
Brush And Stylus By Princeton – $40Ally Mis – Graphic Designer
Ally is crazy adept at creating interesting digital content for BRINK clients but she still indulges the more analog arts – drawing and painting. This brush stylus combines both her digital skills and passion for painting. “This stylus is less restrictive than others, and feels more like the traditional medium.” Get this for the artist that is comfortable in the digital and well as physical spheres of creation.
Fleeces – From $8.95Kai Miller -  Producer for Web and Mobile
Not only is he producing content for web and mobile – Kai has also been poo-duecing (wow, what puns have we stooped to) a line of turd-shaped pillows.  These plush plunkers are a perfect gift for anyone that has a sense of humor (preferably of the bathroom variety) and is in need of new home décor.
HERO3: Black Edition Camera - $399.99Jim Rundel - Video EditorIf no one gets Jim this wearable, waterproof HD camera for Christmas, he will sadly have to get it for himself. The GoPro HERO3 camera is 30% smaller, 25% lighter and 2x more powerful than previous models and is WiFi capable. This little piece of technological innovation is a “must have” for BRINK’s resident cinephile or for any other filmmaker out there.
