I’m finishing up a video I worked on during Hurricane Isaac. In the meantime, here are two interesting videos about animals. One shows a feisty cat slapping an alligator (thanks to Mark H. for the link). The other is of a clever heron using a piece of bread to attract a fish (thanks to Joy M. for the link).
These are examples of videos with amazing content but are poorly shot and edited. Both feature animals doing something unexpected. Suspense is also a characteristic of both videos. These features apparently override any deficiencies in the quality of the footage since they each have over 1 million views.
Food for thought when designing your next video….
