Incorporating user-generated video (UGV) into professional coverage of public events has the potential to enhance experience through offering alternative perspectives. However, current tools for choosing video rely on objective technical quality metrics that might not identify these offerings. This work uses an Open Profiling of Quality methodology, in which participants freely describe and refine a vocabulary of positive and negative qualities of music festival video. By validation with a second viewer cohort, we show that this method can yield attributes with strong descriptive consensus. Our work should help enhance creative processes for selecting footage that transcend conventional criteria.
