Reality video is here to stay. Well, in fact it has always been here though we used to just call it the “interview” or “talk” show. The interaction in those shows gives a great combination of fun and learning. But these days, reality shows do more. People still talk but they also show us stuff - like how to do something - and do it well. Like making latkes (potato pancakes). The format is already pretty well set. But now you can find it on the web. Check out Saveur’s latkes competition.
So what’s the big deal? With costs of making video going down you will see lots of folks developing reality video formats like this for all sorts of purposes. The videos will help us connect with people in our communities and learn faster what is going on around us — and how to do stuff better. They will work if they are fun to watch.
So, made any videos recently?
