Re: [videoblogging] Re: series experiment
- Hey, Christopher,
Congrats on executing your idea in full. Your subject was compelling, the
fellow cutting the tree charismatic and easy to watch. Liked the quality of
the video in all respects, color, compression, editing.
The thing is, once I figured out that your intention was string me along, I
waited for & skipped to the end. An overreaction to being manipulated as
with soap operas.
My attention span in this medium is limited. I prefer folks to get to the
point - even if there is no point or resolution.
A more realistic test would be whether regular subscribers would watch all
the vids through to the end.
What I would like to see is those 3 10-minute pieces edited down to 3
minutes, and how that would play.

I hope you catch more of the episodes.
I am curious if the suspense thing sustains itself throughout the series.
