If you want to get it down to 3-5 minutes you’ll have to start cutting. And cut hard! It’s the only way to do it. In the business it’s called “killing your babies” although I always hated that phrase. Still, the idea is the same. You may like it, but does it move the narrative along? If not, cut it out!I try to keep mine at about 9-10 minutes depending on the topic or type of video.
Honestly I want to get down to 3-5 minutes but I have a tendency of ranting.
I don't know if I should be posting this in the editing section or general discussion, but my question is "How long should a Motovlog be, to keep the audiences attention?" I imagine that once you have a relationship with the audience they will sit through longer videos, but I think that generally peoples attention span are getting shorter. They want to consume information and entertainment quickly and won't sit through a longer video unless, UNLESS they are really interested in the topic.
So my question is, what have you found from your analytics and feedback from subscribers is the ideal length for a Motovlog. What is the average length of time someone will watch one of your videos? Personally I think around 5 minutes is what most people will watch. As a Motovlogger / content creator I would like 8 minutes or more to say what I want to say etc. Any thoughts?
This.How interesting is it? Remove anything boring and then whatever length it is, is the perfect length.
