The Power of Good Visuals

In response to How to Make a Music Video: Rihanna’s ‘Stay’ :

Thanks for sharing this, Jon.  I thought I’d watch the video with no sound first just to see how the story came across.  The sense of longing and sadness came through.  Watching a second time with the sound made it even more powerful.  With all the talk about the importance of storytelling in culture and politics, it’s good to remember that the visual component should be just as powerful as the written or spoken element.

Including the video again below in case anyone missed it.
