Planning First Non-Adult Video Review

Lady of the Lab Lady of the Lab
I am seeking advice from both those who have made videos & those who have watched such videos on EF. I've included a poll of some of the factors I've noticed that make a good video.

The video is a review of a toy cleaner if that is pertinent to any advice.

Please pick the answer choices that influence your opinion of a video.
Answers (private voting - your screen name will NOT appear in the results):
Some sort of music intro. & slide

Good lighting
25
Slides that summarize the most concise points of the review
5
Lack of distracting background noise/movement
24
Other

Make sure you have good lighting, the camera is properly focused and that the mic is picking up your voice loud & clear. I don't care about much else.

Yup, pretty much the most important things for sure.

I have a very clear, concise idea of what you want to say. Have a basic background (rather than looking at your fridge, turn so that I'm looking at a green wall). Don't make-stuff up as you go. Do an overview in the beginning, go into more detail later so that I don't have to watch an entire five minute video to get an overall idea of the product.

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who has offered advice. I am very optimistic this video review will be good ^.^

One thing I would add to the GREAT advice already given - don't just rehash the entire text review with some extra info added in. The video supplements the text review, so does not need to include info that can be found in the text review. The video is to demonstrate things that can't be explained in words.

Also important is to keep it brief, 3 minutes or less.

Good luck! I'm sure you'll do well, it sounds like you're going to work really hard!

PS - here's a link to the Video Review Content Guidelines, it might help too! link

Good lighting, talk clearly and loudly, and keep it brief and don't ramble.

I like basic toy reviews that are basically and oral overview of the toy, adult themed video's don't really help me know more about the toy

I totally agree! I want to be able to see the item and hear you. I personally get annoyed by all the slides and fades in and out....but that's just me.
