It doesn't sound like Superfly, so is it another version?

Glad I finally found something that I could understand from "storytelling". I have been learning how to "tell a story" with vlogs for weeks now and looked at a lot of "set-up conflict and resolution", which were understandable but hard to apply. I loved how your tips gave me new insights! Thanks for the video!

So glad this video came up in my feed - really helpful right now! I have a how-to channel (Learn Tai Chi at home). How to is typically seen as straight Forward: steps to do something you didn’t know before. But I’ve been wanting to make it more compelling, so I’ve been really ramping up the cinematic quality of the video itself - more B-roll, picking better locations, using multiple angles of shots etc. still something seems missing. How do you turn How-to into a story? I love the “Normal-explosion-update” concept. But one thing still stumps me: how do I add drama/conflict to a tutorial on a Tai Chi movement?

Describe the new world we live in, showcase the stakes at hand if change were not to happen, and paint the picture of a promise land and how to get there. Great storytelling always follows this framework. Thank you Chris Do for your time and effort, you are helping others grow.

50 cent's Financial Advisor
story delaying is only effective if the audience is still engaged and interested. If people get too bored and impatient, they'll zone out. Too many bloggers and content writers take too long to get to the point of the post. People want value and entertainment, not babble and procrastination.

and it doesn't help that society has become so attention deficit. a couple years ago people were happy to watch a 10 minute video, now you have to caption and describe whats going to happen in a 15 second video for people to watch it. maybe its because so many people are creating similar content, that everyone is more picky about what will be worth their time.

story delaying is effective when their rising action. you are right that people will get bored if you don't present a problem, challenge or outcome they don't care about.
