Hi - These videos are a disappointing opportunity missed by Motorola - having sat through 5 talking heads, during each one I was tempted to switch channels because they all failed to illustrate the products the 'talking head' was trying to interest us in. Post production of the interviews, merely by adding some illustrative video of the products being described would have brought the story to greater reality, in effect making the sound a voice over.
Motorola have missed the point of such opportunities by thinking that the customer is buying the salesman - (which may be good for the ego of the relevant managers), but doesn't use this medium to illustrate the products in a 'taster' format.
