What makes a good clip
The best clips are stories. This is something you can watch that has a beginning , middle and an end. This means that people are engaged from the very start and want to watch to the end to follow the unfolding narrative. If you filmed a kill but either missed the chase or the take down then it is not as interesting for the viewer as they feel they have not followed the animal on its journey.
If you have caught something on camera that is rarely seen in the wild then this is something we want to see. It could be a predator such as a leopard interacting with a prey animal such as an impala without killing it. It could be a birth or a melanistic/leucistic animal or it could simply be a mother rushing to help her infant.
Baby animals are super popular the world over, so if you have some cute clips then we would love to see them.
We all know that predators have to survive in the wild and the way they do that is by killing prey animals. The strength and power that the animal shows is nothing short of a miracle and if you have caught this on camera then we would love to see it. We are far more interested in seeing the hunt and the chase than the killing or the eating because many global viewers around the world find this traumatic to watch, understandably.
