Making a vertical video of the junk-turkey-making process

Still image of a sideways junk turkey video

I made my first IGTV video. And also my first vertical video (because that’s IGTV’s thing). I hope to do more of these, so follow me on Instagram if you want to see them. 

I’m not guaranteeing they’re going to be any good because I really have no idea what I’m doing. So far I’m shooting with my phone, uploading footage to iMovie and then editing my vertical shots into a horizontal format (because as far as I can tell that’s the only way iMovie lets you edit). Basically that means I’m craning my neck 90 degrees the entire time I’m editing.

After I save the completed sideways video, I open it in Quick Time and rotate it 90 degrees to make it vertical. Then I upload it to IGTV.

There’s got to be an easier way, right?  I suspect it might involve learning Adobe Premiere, which I have successfully avoided so far.

Anybody got any tips for me on video editing, IGTV and/or non-surgical neck-pain-relief techniques? Please share in the comments below. I need all the help I can get.
