Well said. I don't see why some of us have to be defensive when a negativ... OK, actually I do see why: it's just club loyalty which is unobjective and a lovely thing.well I don't think austin was "worrying about a minute long video", he was just offering a counterpoint to everyone heaping praise on it. I for one agree that it was pretty cringeworthy. Not everyone's gonna see things the way people want them to, but by VDS going the man with his tried and true "do you want the club to offer an apology" vibe it's actually counterproductive to a legitimate conversation about our media department, which some of us think has been underperforming for a while.
But that loyalty can have downsides, encouraging us to ignore deficits in our club, which brings us to this latest example.
The Deliveroo promo, and the G-Train membership video was a similar standard last year. I guess they're not BAD but they are pretty lame.
Those Linton St videos George just posted are an example of effective videos done well, so our media crew do have it in them.
I guess the difference with this Deliveroo vid and the G-train vid is they were probably knocked up in a hurry, without heaps of thought or planning. But you don't think that when you watch, you think "How rubbish was that vid?"
It's a sports team, not a university so it doesn't need to be anything particularly high-brow, but why does it have to be so dumb?
It's not even a big deal, I promise I didn't think about it after I made that initial comment, but since criticism is being criticised by our most loyal clubmen, I thought I'd give an explanation so you don't think I'm just a hater.
Edit: I don't like the Talking Jack podcasts either, sorry. JB comes off looking like the village idiot in them and the others just tease him. The ones with Lethlean are alright, though I find the presenter a bit annoying. The solution for most of these problems would be getting someone with smarter ideas involved.
