Mixing Talks With Infographics to Create a Story

I was watching several of video from the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce - or simply the RSA. Besides having a YouTube channel filled with interesting content, they have created some of the best story telling videos I have ever seen.

They are combining the audio from talks with extremely clever and artistic infographics. They are not just telling you a great story; they are showing it to you.

It's similar in concept to the many great videos from The Common Craft Show, just a bit better, and more profound.

Like these:

The surprising truth about what motivates us
