The video essay boom

Terry Nguyen, for Vox:

One can even argue that we are witnessing the video essay’s golden era. Run times are longer than ever, while more and more creators are producing long-form videos. The growth of “creator economy” crowdfunding tools, especially during the pandemic, has allowed video essayists to take longer breaks between uploads while retaining their production quality.

Did I mention I've been uploading 30-60 minute videos about my photography to YouTube lately? Yes? I have? Well, allow me to mention it again. :-)
