As a Television Journalism student I think I’m pretty proficient in video editing.  But visual storytelling is different than how-to videos.

What I view as a flaw with how-to videos is that they almost require a stop which fights against what I think of as the attribute of video; movement.

So which do you find more helpful? A video of the repetitive motion or still photos of each step along with an audio narrative? I’ll be trying both this week.

This first video is edited with Final Cut and vocied in Audacity.  What other programs do you use for video or audio editing?

This video is an example of repetitive motions of Knitting and an underlying how-to audio track.
