“I was very impressed with Cat’s desire to understand and then communicate the understanding of the meteorological reasons for the flood, and the limitations of our current forecast products. I especially appreciated that Cat involved me in all phases of the production. Scientists fear their work being taken out of context; for us, scientific accuracy is paramount. Cat let me see her edited product and make suggestions about what could be cut, what extra material needed to be added, and asked me to review her own narrative to determine if it was factually accurate. Were there another project that Cat were to work on that needed my expertise, I would be extremely happy to work with her again. The first time around was an unadulterated pleasure.”

Online videos continue to experience explosive growth. According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index (VNI), globally, consumer Internet video traffic will be 69 percent of all consumer Internet traffic in 2017, up from 57 percent in 2012, while online video users are expected to double to 1.5 billion in 2016. 1 Nearly 60 percent of viewers watch video before reading text on the same webpage 2 and are 2.5 times more likely to engage in longer short-form video if the content is personally relevant to them. 3
With the web rapidly moving from text to video, businesses are quickly adapting to this shift in technology to avoid becoming irrelevant to their consumers, who expect to see video everywhere online. According to the SundaySky 2012 State of Online Video US Research Report, online video advertisement spending is forecast to grow from $2.9 billion in 2012, to $9 billion by 2017, a 26 percent growth rate per year. 4 There is no disputing that Internet technological advancements including video streaming and faster connection speeds have launched a new era of global communication and marketing in the form of digital multimedia.
