The average attention span of human being probably clocks in at around one nanosecond… and spoiler alert: you can’t say much in ONE SECOND, let alone a fraction of one.

With much of the content we create, we live by the philosophy of “shorter is better.” If you can tell a strong story in a short amount of time, that’s a win. But what happens when your message requires a longer-form video, but you are concerned about viewers scrolling right past it?
