I sent 2 vids.
The first one was raw exactly as recorded - no music - no editing
The second was edited with music and transitions.
I loved the second and was really proud of the editing work I did on it.
My question was simple:
which vid do you prefer.
the answer was pret clear:
60% prefered the raw version
40% prefered the edited version
I was really surprised but in a way, of course, it makes.
Here are the reasons that were invoked for prefering the raw version:
- It is more real! More personal!
- When I am hurting in a break up, not sure I want to hear some high energy techno music blasting through my ears.
In other terms, the raw version was connecting slightly better + was matching an energy level.
60/40 is not a big difference, I agree + It is still possible the the edited version attracts more sales when used in a commercial way.
To keep in mind for future vids
