No need to watch the whole thing, I've seen this in many videos but this is the one I was watching most recently.

Now, it seems to me that all the top video bloggers on youtube do this thing where they talk for about 10 seconds and then turn off their camera. Then they take all these 10 second clips when they are done, and mash them together to try and make them seamless.

Is it some sort of way to avoid using words like uhmmm or ahhhh. Is it to avoid pauses during the video? I'm really interested as to why they do this. To be honest, if there's no logical purpose for this, then it really bothers me...

Because they realise that what they have to say is so boring and insignificant that they feel the need to spice it up a bit with faux SFX.

because its logical to do it that way?

think about it, if you were ranting on about britney spears or something, and you crap up, you want to sit and look like a fool for all of the interwebz? no


its called editing, some people use it to take out the stuff they dont want to put on video. but dont take my word for it /queue reading rainbow music

They dont take ten-second clips i dont think. They do one long taping, with several takes of what theyre saying, and then edit it down into one video. It makes things shorter, and jump cuts can sometimes be used effectively.

EDIT: I wouldn't exactly have picked that video myself. Posting something like that on a music forum tends to be distracting imo.

I think it's called editing. Some movies have it, too.

Try Terminator, that one definitely has editing.

That's not comparable, that's good editing. This is **** editing that is blatantly obvious and makes the person in the video look like an ADD riddled fool.

I can't believe that no one has given you the props you deserve for this yet.

In relation to this thread: Yeah, it's just to cut out awkward pauses. I've done videos like this before, and it just makes things look better. Also, the technique isn't to turn off the camera after 10 seconds... you just film yourself doing one long take, then cut out the bad parts. It's easier and takes less time.
