Producing a video adds another layer of complexity to an argument. Unlike written passages, a video captures the verbal response from the author as well as other more insightful aspects. A video allows the viewer to see the author or speaker’s facial expressions and emotional connection to what they are talking about. Furthermore, a video gives the viewer a more personal connection to the author, as opposed to written text which makes it easy to alienate one’s self from the author.
Despite these benefits to a visual response, a video is more difficult to successfully produce. In my video I struggled convey exactly what I wanted to and I feel that because I used guidelines rather than a script, the video may have lacked smooth flow from one topic to the next. On the other hand, verbal responses are not usually held to the same level of speech as written text because people generally write better than they speak. The trick is to juggle the two and find a healthy median.
If I had more time to work on the video I would make it longer and improve my statement in order to make it more concise and meaningful.
