e-Bama: First Weekly Presidential Web Video Address

Seems like the Obama team anticipated the suggestions we and others have made about making the weekly radio address a Web Video address.

Great graphics and message. But otherwise - c’mon guys – let’s up the production values, and quick. The video doesn’t look presidential:

• YouTube is an Intimate, Small Screen format, not a widescreen format. Don’t waste resolution just to be artsy fartsy film school chic. It’s just dumb and self-indulgent.

Center the Shot. Again, leave the gratuitous Sundance composition styles back at NYU.

Background: Blech!!! No depth of field, texture, etc. Think of oval office addresses.

• The Chair: Really? A high backed chair? Makes the President-Elect look like Dr. Evil, or my 6 year old nephew. Either way, not what you’re going for.

Nit picks, sure, but your visuals have been so strong, it’s odd that this one was so weak. Lower production values are fine for campaign, or for aides, but he’s the president-elect now, and so the model is the Oval Office TV Address (minus the incumbent in this shot).

To be sure, most don’t watch these videos with “producer eyes” - but I imagine future Webcasts will be sharper even so.

All that said, congrats on the first Web Video innovation of the Presidency.
