This vinyl chair repair video opens with a nice shot of the outside of the shop. It turns an ordinary how-to video on YouTube in to something similar to what you might see on TV. The next shot sequence in the video gets right to it with a close up of the damaged chair cushion being taken apart. There isn’t much of an introduction.
The video does a great job of having close ups when needed and having a clear view of what steps are being taken. The close ups of the work being done on the imitation leather fabric are great. It is easy to see what is going on and you get a clear idea of what to do. However, there is not much talking; it almost seems as if the man is talking to himself and not to the viewer. There are a lot of how-to videos that don’t have talking in them, but usually, when there is no talking done by the instructor, there is some other form of instruction to make sure the viewer gets what is going on. The video is great for a visual learner, but there could be more verbal instruction on how to upholster the cushion. If the person did not want to talk in the video, a slide in between shots could be added with written instruction on what to do to repair the damaged chair cushion.
It’s also great that there is music in the background, but it might have been better if it was added to the video afterwards so that it was a little clearer to hear for those watching the video to enjoy it, too.
The slide with the website name at the end was a nice finish to the video. Overall, it was a strong how-to video but it would be helpful for either written or verbal instruction as well.
