when you are interested in a topic and want to do a story on it, you need to do your research. you need to have some background knowledge of the story to really get an in-depth story. You want to let the audience know that you are an expert on the topic. Let’s say you went in and made a video on something with no background knowledge about it. The story would seem unprofessional, unclear and people won’t take your end products seriously. Research is what makes your story real and seem as if it were polished.
