3 ways to spruce up your talking head video

Have you ever wondered how you can keep your talking head video engaging?

Talking head videos – the 8 second rule

There is one simple idea that I like to follow that I call an 8 second rule. If 8 seconds pass and you are still on your talking head, consider adding a visual supporting element to stimulate the viewers. This element can be a graphic animation, cutting to a B-roll shot or a super animating in. A healthy mix of all three will help make your talking head video more engaging.
