The idea here is to create a supercut of short internet videos from Youtube. All of the chosen videos have a moment of anticipation (where the viewer expects or even desires something to happen) and a moment of payoff (when a diver hits the water, when a BMX rider does a cool trick, when complex machine finishes operation, etc.) The twist with this video is to remove the payoff component, and to leave only the anticipation. So, the video messes with the perceptions and expectations of the viewer and provides a new lens to the average viral clip. I believe that a video with this theme has great potential to spread, because the idea is easy enough to describe in a sentence or two (perfect for twitter!). Also the video can be as short or long as the viewer likes and can turn it off at any time, making it perfect for bite-size viewings.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
