The Building Blocks of a Video Essay

In the comments below, note techniques employed by Tom Scott to engage his viewers' interest and to teach them. In noting techniques, think back to your training in mise-en-scene analysis: what do we see, what do we hear, how does the camera move, how does Scott integrate different clips together, etc.?

In addition, if you have a favorite YouTube educator, link a video that you like. For purposes of the upcoming video essay assignment, I'm particularly interested in videos that teach by reference to museum exhibits, interesting locations or (more generally) tourist destinations.
