If Educational Videos Were Filmed Like Music Videos
There's a reason music videos look strange. I could just talk about framerate, cuts and continuity... or I could get an actual music video director. And a leaf blower.

    Names in the credits: I went to school with Stevens family. I'm older than all of them, but three of them were born before me! I know it sounds weird, but somehow we all celebrated our 10th birthday on the same day. Great guys; pleased they finally made it. Especially the pool scene...

  • youraftermyrobotbee

    2:04 "This is the part where we break up the video with a bit of diegetic audio just so people can't rip the whole thing off ISnets." You didn't have to call high school me out like this fam.

  • realvanman

    AWESOME! Gawd I hate spastic TV shows of ANY kind. The constant drama and cutting from camera to camera. NAUSEATING! Thanks for calling them out on how STUPID it really is!

    Besides the aspect ratio, what makes this video look so "music-video-y"? Like it looks crisp and the lighting is in such a way that only looks like in music videos
