There’s this new trend out of India. According to the makers of the app 2014 was the year of the selfie now it’s time for the Velfie — the video selfie.

A brief twitter search reveals most of the velfies come from India. So I decided to make one of my own. It’s not as easy as it sounds.

I chose a song from my iTunes to lip-sing with — a Judy Collins one of course. I then proceeded to take video of my face. First I used a selfie stick but that was too long so I took to a smaller tripod. Hence I came up with the piece of instagram art you see in the previous post.

There are a few rules — it has to be 10 seconds. This is set by the free velfie app.
