What kind of stories go well with video?

Angela Grant at News Videographer has listed some char­ac­ter­is­tics of sto­ries that work well with video. These slam-dunk video sto­ries should have:

  • Lots of move­ment and action
  • Something peo­ple just want to see
  • Emotion

Of course, these char­ac­ter­is­tics are obvi­ous, but Grant includes sev­eral exam­ples of each kind of story beneath the list items. It’s worth check­ing out the list of links.

  1. Dear Michael,

    Thanks for posting a link to my blog! I still think the tips in that post are handy, but your readers may also be interested in subsequent information that I learned after analyzing video views. People overwhelmingly gravitate to news videos and sports videos. A well done feature can still attract a large audience; but this new info may change how your readers decide what is worth the time and effort to create a video. Here’s the info.
