#JOBYAmbassadors NAS Daily Bootcamp in Morocco

By | Gorillapod, JOBY Ambassadors, Travel, Vlog | No Comments

#JOBYAmbassadors NAS Daily is an engaging content creator on Facebook. With his 5+ million followers, he highlights tons of amazing locations and people throughout the world. We sponsored his second boot camp in Morocco, where he flew a small group of content creators from around the world, to show them how he creates his videos. Check out the videos and make sure to follow him on Facebook.

Morocco For Free?!!

Two months ago, I proposed the idea of bringing YOU, the person watching, to come travel with me and learn how to make videos like mine....for Facebook and not Youtube! 🙂 Because everybody deserves to tell their story, even if you can't afford to. I was lucky enough to get thousands of applicants, and even more lucky to get thousands of dollars to pay for 5 people to come and travel with me for a week! All expenses covered. All the way from Mongolia, New Zealand, Poland, India, and Syria.... we've brought 5 amazing people thanks to the help of Royal Air Maroc airlines and Joby the camera accessories company! Trust me, I can't afford it. And this is the best form of sponsorship: one that HELPS YOU, the viewer, and not just ME. And these two companies are rockstars for taking a chance on this!

i hated my name

As a kid, I struggled with my real name and I wanted to legally change it. But now that I'm old, I think it would have been a bad idea.It's nice to be at a place where my name makes sense. And father, thank you for being so creative with the name you chose for me 🙂 It was the worst thing, now it is the best thing :)Thank you so much to Royal Air Maroc and Joby for helping me in bringing the Nas Daily Bootcamp participants to Morocco! We're loving it so far! LIKE Nas Daily on Facebook and Instagram!Music: Full River of Reflections by PremiumBeat

I love Ahmed Gharib!!! The best stories are the ones you're least likely to expect. ---This video was shot and edited with the help of the second Nas Daily Bootcamp, where I'm bringing 5 of YOU to travel and make videos with me...all expenses paid!

COME TRAVEL FOR FREE!

I want to take you to Senegal with me for a week. Making videos for Facebook is a lonely process. Not many people make videos, and not many people make videos for Facebook.That's why I want to help you make better Facebook videos (this is not sponsored by Facebook) for a full week in a new country like Senegal. This is not fun. This is hard work, stress, lots of fights, but really worth it. APPLICATION PROCESS:Show me that you are a good fit (or tag friends)!This is for video makers, and people interested in storytelling and video production. That's why your application should include your best videos, or a link to your channel.Deadline for applications in March 1, 2018 and the Nas Daily Facebook Video Camp will be held in SENEGAL from March 21-27.Chosen applicants will be e-mailed by March 3. Please send your application to NasDailyBootcamp@gmail.com by March 1. Special thanks to Royal Air Maroc and Joby for sponsoring the second Bootcamp in Morocco. Sponsorships like these are the ones that excite me the most - ones where the viewer benefit, not just the creator. P.SI'm not rich and I certainly don't have $15k to spend on the third bootcamp, that's why if you're a company, this is a good opportunity for you (E-mail me!)) LIKE Nas Daily on Facebook and Instagram!Music: Fade by Alan Walker P.P.S Why Facebook not Youtube?It is my belief that the best place right now to get your voice heard is Facebook, not Youtube. It's where your message can reach millions of people no matter who you are. But I'm not here to promote Facebook. I'm here because I genuinely believe Facebook is the best (and only) option for our purpose of storytelling. And if it worked for me, it can work for you.

How to Capture the Best Instagram Stories with #JOBYAmbassadors Cailin O’Neil

By | Gorillapod, JOBY Ambassadors, Snapchat, Travel, Vlog, YouTube | No Comments

#JOBYAmbassadors Cailin O’Neil shares with you her top four tips on getting the best Instagram Stories and snaps for Snapchat, with the help of her GorillaPod.

As a global travel blogger for the past eight and a half years, my GorillaPod has always been an essential travel tool. I’ve used it to hold my cameras, iPhones and now, with the new Action tripod, my GoPro. With my GorillaPod, I’ve captured some pretty awesome pictures, videos and, of course, LOTS of Snapchats and Instagram Stories. I wanted to share some of my best tips with you. Here they are:

  1. Bring It With You Everywhere

This might seem like a silly tip, but no matter where you go, always have your GorillaPod with you. They are light and don’t take up much space. Due to its diverse shape-shifting abilities, I can even attach it to a small purse to bring with me on the go.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve left it in my hotel room only to find the perfect use for it later on when I didn’t have it. So, ALWAYS bring it with you. It is also ideal to bring into places that don’t allow tripods, such as museums and churches because it doesn’t look like your traditional tripod.

  1. Think Outside The Box

Anyone can record and publish Snapchat and Instagram Stories, but they may not automatically be great at it. Having a GorillaPod can help personalize Snapchat and Instagram Stories and help you stand out from the crowd with more unique content.   One advantage is being able to move beyond the “talking head” shot to capture interesting angles thanks to the GorillaPod’s flexible body. Additionally, the GorillaPod allows users to go hands-free, capturing more authentic emotion and personality with a JOBY Impulse. The hands-free capability also provides for a steady, smooth shot.

  1. Capture Time-lapse Videos

For all the reasons a GorillaPod is perfect for still shots and regular videos, it also allows you to capture the passage of time. You can either use the time-lapse option on your phone, use the fast-forward option on Snapchat or use my favorite app, Hyperlapse .

With Hyperlapse you can capture time-lapse walking shots by moving the phone, for example, as you walk through a busy market.  Not only does Hyperlapse have great built-in stabilization but holding onto your GorillaPod instead of directly holding onto your phone with your elbows up and away from your body increases stabilization for smooth-moving time-lapses.

  1. Use It For Close-ups

Admittedly, I am one of those people that likes to photograph / Snapchat / Instagram my food if it looks extra tasty. I don’t, however, want to be that person standing on a chair over a table with their camera making a scene in a restaurant. With my GorillaPod, I can capture close-up shots and videos of my food without facing social scrutiny. Whether it is a time-lapse shot of nachos being devoured or other hands-free close-up shots, you might be surprised at what you can achieve with a GorillaPod.

No matter how you decide to use your GorillaPod for filming, your social video game will definitely benefit from it. Do you have any other tips that I forgot to mention? Leave a comment below!

Three Tips To Make You A Better Vlogger With Valentina Dang

By | Gorillapod, JOBY Ambassadors, Travel, Tutorial, Vlog, YouTube | No Comments

JOBY Ambassador, Valentina Dang shares three helpful vlog tips on how to use GorillaPods to make your videos more watchable.

#1 Stabilization

No one wants to continue watching a shaky video. The GorillaPod acts like a buffer to dampen your arm movements for a smoother video.

#2 Use Your Environment

Give some context to where you are vlogging from. You’re telling a story and you need a setting. Make sure the viewers can see where you are and not just an up close selfie.

#3 Perspective

Having multiple angles in your video will help make it more entertaining. Using multiple GorillaPods setup around your shot location will go a long way to creating a better overall final video.

GorillaPod Love
