I’m a long-time lurker, and I recently started doing some videos that aim to do pretty much the same thing Cecil’s been doing for years. The idea is that people nowadays are more likely to watch a short, engaging video on youtube than they are to read a page of text. Plus, some topics really benefit from the visual aid.
Anyway, to get to the point, does anyone have a topic that might work well for this medium?
If you’re interested, it might be worth checking our current stuff as examples:
Chemotherapy and How it Works- our first one, but also the one we did for family/friends https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-FNfrC3EX6c
Booze, Drugs and your Brain (Part 1 of 2: the second part will involve serotonin and dopamine)- we had it on Reddit and people seemed to like it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kckjc_T-pBg
We really enjoyed making these, but we need suggestions on where to go next, and what people’d like to see. We’ve got a few ideas right now, but if anyone has a general question they’d like explained in a very straightforward way, or a suggestion for how ‘science-heavy’ vs ‘approachable and casual’ you’d like it to be, please let us know! We can get each video done within a week or two.
