I’ve joined a service where I watch videos to earn points toward Amazon gift certificates. I figure this is an easy way to raise funds to buy my wedding dress and accessories. The first sets of videos I chose to watch were all food videos.
I was surprised at them. To me they seemed pretty useless:
- Videos in which you watched someone make a dish set to music. There is no narration, nor a recipe ever given.
- Videos where actresses read recipes as if they were erotic passages.
- Videos where someone shows you how to make something and then flashes the recipe on a couple of screens.
I don’t get it. I don’t know about you, but I watch food videos to learn something. I like the “kitchen hack” type videos that give you an actionable tip you can put to use. But what is the point of these other videos? Entertainment only? I’d rather watch a movie trailer!
What about you? What would you like to see in food videos? I’m getting ready to start making more Carma’s Cookery videos. What would you like to see in them? Please post your questions and suggestions in the comments below.
