For my entry into the SAP NetWeaver Portal Movie Critic challenge I have decided to review the video “The World Today – Intern creates a pretty freakin cool event site” which can be viewed below.
I have chosen to review this video because it shows the ease with which sites can be created and does it in a fun, humorous manner that made it stand out from the crowd.
Across the internet there are so many “how to”s and demonstration videos and if you are like me then after a while they all start to blend into one in your memories, well I’m sure that won’t be happening any time soon with this video. By exaggerating the “young people are able to do anything with technology” stereotype into this breaking news bulletin format the creators have given their video a signature look which makes it stand out from the crowd, and in this age of media content overload standing out from the crowd is the first and usually most difficult challenge a video will have to go through. There is some nice attention to detail with the humour too, it is worth re-watching the video just to see the antics going on in the background which would have likely been missed first time around.
On top of being humorous the video is also quite informative, the viewer will go away from the video with the lasting impression that the software in use is easy to understand and quick to pick up and the fact that it got this message across while it hardly even shows the software in use for more than 10 seconds of its run time is really impressive to me, I come away from this video knowing I would find it easy to create a site using this software even though I am a relative novice when it comes to development such as this.
All in all I really enjoyed watching this video and I would be glad to see the further adventures of our favourite intern Emma should any more of these videos be made.

Thank you for taking the time to read my review.
