The companion video to my recent Pressure Cooker Vegetable Beef Soup recipe is up on YouTube. Check it out:
Video: Pressure Cooker Vegetable Beef Soup (8:10)

This is a full length video, not one of my usual quick hit time lapses. I’m going to try to mix in a longer video every now and again, so let me know what you think of the format.
I already have thoughts about full length videos:
- Full length videos are hard! My time lapse video workflow is smooth – I can churn one out pretty quickly. But a full length video? Where I have to do voiceovers and cut in B-Roll? I always forget how much work is involved. And then I think “I know it takes longer, but I’ll be done in a week instead of a couple of days…” And when I’m still editing weeks later, I get mad at myself. Not a good workflow, that’s for sure.
- Quick time-lapse videos are great for embedding in my posts, or sharing on Facebook – but YouTube hates them. Well, OK, hate may be strong, but YouTube wants you to stay on YouTube, watching video. A 2 minute video doesn’t interest their ranking algorithm. But a 5 to 10 minute video? Now they’re interested. I’m going to try to mix in the occasional longer video, to see if I can get some traction on YouTube for my pressure cooker videos. (That is, if #1 doesn’t kill me. Did I mention how much work these longer videos are?)
What do you think?
