Re: Looking for feedback on these videos please

Hmm quick one, good points: generally clear narration (except for one or two pronunciation mistakes), comments are to the point.

Things to improve on: instead of using static images, possible to have short video clips especially on game previews? Should have available footage for topics covered.

I would say that the video is too static and not as dynamic. Other than that, everything else is on point.

Re: Looking for feedback on these videos please

The VO is just fine, could maybe be a little faster but not bad. If you could add any video of B-Roll to them like other news sites do it would be really good.

Thumbs up Re: Looking for feedback on these videos please

I agree with the comments above. The content is great. It covers a wide range of gaming news, concise, to the point, and is very informative. The pacing is a little on the slower side, and especially since there are no face/lip movements to see and follow, it's easy to stop listening unless I'm really focused on it.

It would take more production work for sure, but it would be nice to see a face to have a more personal experience.

Re: Looking for feedback on these videos please

I love it! The only thing I think about it is that it's a bit slow, maybe tighten the script a little bit to keep the narration flowing smoothly. Is there any possibility to also get video rather than imagery? It's no big deal, but, I would like to see moving images rather than static pictures.

Re: Looking for feedback on these videos please

It's "ok". The voice was clear, entertaining enough and held me on for the duration of the video so the under 4 minutes mark is a good length to aim for.

* Lack of videos/moving images however had me switch off from looking at it, might as well have just had a vocal recording.

* Script could be worked upon, a lot of repetitiveness wasn't helping the flow of the video at times.

The 'game on' at the end did make me lol though.

It just sounds so scripted, it's a great idea, mind.

Hi everyone - I'm the bloke behind the videos (unfortunately not the one with the sensual voice).

Thanks for all of your feedback, I'll look into making improvements to the videos in future!

Re: Looking for feedback on these videos please

I would love to see a face with the voice - keeps people engaged between static images.

Maybe something like this show I saw a while ago... think it's called Byte Control or something

Re: Looking for feedback on these videos please

In all fairness. That video is pretty terrible in my opinion and recorded it quite quickly. Other newer ones are far better.
