Okay, okay… maybe I’m exaggerating a bit.
Sorry, honestly, the title is a little bit of a clickbait. I think each type of content has its own complexity, power, and potential. So let’s scratch that:
Why video is king.
Why I think video is king.
Ahh… much better. With this out of the way, there are several reasons why video, as a type of content, is my personal favorite.
#1 it’s a mix of everything
First of all, this is the place where you have to make use of every discipline.
I believe a good director needs to understand so much – from writing, music, rhythm, to colors, photography, lighting, design, aesthetics, human psychology, the list goes on and on.
Pretty much the only thing missing is the smell and taste, and I can’t wait to see the day when we can incorporate those into a movie. Can you imagine the magic of being fully engulfed in a story?
#2 it’s the epitome of storytelling
By being a mix of everything, video is literally as far as art has evolved, and there’s progress being made every single day, with videographers and film producers pushing the boundaries of the audio-visual to create the type of stories that really touch you to the core.
#3 video doesn’t tell you, it brings you there
I’ve never agreed with the argument that pretentious bookworms love repeating: books are better than movies because movies leave no space for imagination. I think this couldn’t be more wrong – videos allow you to immerse yourself into a different world. They allow you to picture yourself living as someone who is also part of the story. There’s a beautiful interaction between what the editor gives you and what you, as the audience, expect or wish will happen.
