Is Vine Paying off for Smaller Brands?
"There’s not a huge difference between a stop-motion Vine and other content, like photos and/or text, when posted to a channel like Twitter."

Vines have become the preferred choice of content for major brands that want showcase creativity and stand out from the competition. M&M has created 22 Vines, all but one of which are stop motion.
Seth Weisfeld, Vine’s product design lead, recently told Digiday, “creating stop-motion animations with the Vine app is very easy and doesn’t require any additional equipment or post-production.”
Similarly, reports Digiday, GE has used stop motion for more than 80 percent of its Vines (out of a total of 100), using the platform from everything to explaining Sir Issac Newton’s theory of gravity to Pi Day.
“There’s a level of complexity required for stop-motion animation,” GE’s global manager of digital marketing, Katrina Craigwell, told Digiday.
