In your opinion, what elements make the best videos?

The best videos I think get the point across within the first seven seconds, have several different narratives to keep viewers stimulated if it isn't short-form, and you can't go wrong with great editing.

Keep your eyes peeled for the rest of the meet the team blogs!
