What's a good length for a promo video. Would you say 1 minute is too long?

From what I've read (various sources) it seems 30-60 seconds is recommended. I try to keep mine between 30-45, but a few are closer to a minute.
Thanks. I've just done one at 57 seconds so it sounds about right. Any shorter and there wasn't time to read even short captions

I think it really depends on the trailer. I've seen cinematic-style trailers go up to a little over 2-minutes and keep my full attention, and I've been bored by 30-second trailers that just quote reviews and offer nothing interesting visually and/or don't seem to follow any script.

(I would say that as between a slightly longer trailer and keeping your captions up long enough to be read, err on the side of making a slightly longer trailer.)
