However, sometimes it might be easier or less time-consuming to demonstrate something using camera-recorded video instead of recreating a situation using animated objects: a product demo, an exterior site, a manufacturing process, an interview — live action helps showing your audience how something works or what you've achieved. This helps you to concretize your story, and to connect with your audience. Other examples of useful recorded video footage include stock videos, event footage but also screen recordings, e.g. to explain a software application. Of course video footage also has its downsides: a long recording of a person being interviewed or a tedious monologue might give your audience a harder time concentrating as there is limited visual or textual support. Interferences such as people walking by or background noises can also distract your audience.
