How to Tie a Knot Video

How can you use narrative as an instructional device? This video shows the tying of a Windsor Knot through interactions between a couple showing that instruction can be more than lists or diagrams.



The initial objective of this exercise was to create a video of two minutes or less that describes how to execute a chosen task without using words or voiceover. Out of the options, I chose to made a video instructing the viewer on how to tie a Windsor knot. I chose to frame these instructions with narrative to make clear that tying a tie is an activity most easily done with the help of another person.
