great images, zero reason to watch

06/29/2013

Everyone is a photographer these days. The advent of affordable DSLRs has put the power of good photography in anyone’s hands that wants it.

And video is not far behind. With DSLRs now taking stunning HD video images, everyone will soon be a videographer.

Thus, we get videos like this. Picked up and posted on The Atlantic’s website, no less.

Stunning images. Beautifully shot (though I hate the shots where the interview is in profile).

And absolutely zero storyline. It’s literally halfway through the video before we even hear anything that could begin a storyline. Even that doesn’t develop.

I have nothing against the guys that put this piece together. They can shoot circles around me. But unless you’re giving me a reason to watch, the video fails in my opinion.
