    An excellent video and to the point for me since I’m working to add metadata to my photos right now. The only scene I would cut was where someone used a Sharpie ink pen to write on the back of a photograph. Ouch!

    Great job! I am a video editor and have been thrown like the rest of us into the IT world of metadata also in video. Great production process too. Teamwork os the absolute key – especially in the revision stage as you discovered. (On a side note, the Sharpie pen doesn’t bother me – just let the ink dry! Much better than a ball point!)

    This is a refreshing insight to the other side of the house. Im on the IT and Internet Marketing side. I appreciate the thoughts on Thinking about retaining a viewer’s attention. And tagging videos with data. I especially like this phrase: “In informational videos, as in writing, it’s best to get right to the point and not dawdle over fluffy language,” thanks for the post it will help me to better target and market to my customers. And I’m smiling because I think you may have not even known that that’s what you’re doing.
