Can narrated-photo-sideshows work in lieu of videos? Of course, it can. But there are good reasons to use video. To name a few:
Presenting highly motivational leader, like the CEO in orientation programs.
Showing complex operations of an equipment or skill, like a surgical procedure.
And many other reasons.
However, if you are cost conscious and must produce video like narrated photo case studies, interactions, or illustrations, the narrated-photo-sideshows might do the work.
In this example provided by Psychological Associates, Inc., owner of SPQ4 (Selling to the Power of Q4), it was decided that narrated-photo-sideshows can keep the emotions, drama, suspense, and impact at far lesser cost than a video production.
