The Colors, Movement and Simplicity of the Carnival
Great videos don't have to have flashy graphics, quick moving video, multiple scenes and emotional music. Sometimes the simplest of videos are the most compelling.
Take this one minute video from the Mid-State Fair in California, produced by David Barker.
It's extremely simple, but as the minute progresses, watch the various movements in the foreground and background. The colors are rich, complex and fun.
Again, it's a simple video, but for one minute, it's pretty entertaining.
