I absolutely love these Vox Pop videos. There are “50 People, 1 Question” videos from all over the world. I liked the San Francisco one for multiple reasons: I love the personality and diversity each person brings to the video, I am from the Bay Area and it is always nice to see videos/articles from your home town, and it is shorter than the other 50 people videos and therefore keeps my attention better.
In my video editing class we talked about the length of videos and how shorter videos are bound to keep an audience better than longer videos. This one is a perfect example. Although I would sit through a 50 People, 1 Question video that was longer than 3 minutes, many times people lose interest after 2 or 3 minutes and don’t watch the video through to the end. I feel as though this video holds attention and isn’t so long that it loses the viewer’s interest.
What do you think? Do you like this style of video editing? What didn’t you like about the video?
