Presentation Guildelines

Because this is a class in visual analysis, I like presentations to be image based, limiting the number of words on slides to 10 maximum, with slides set to run at automatic 20 second intervals. This creates an abbreviated pecha kucha style presentation. Your presentation should allow for Q&A, whether through comments on YouTube link or showing up at a time on Zoom to show your video and answer questions (see sign up).

Abbreviated Pecha Kucha format: 2-5 image-only slides, set to run automatically at 20 seconds each (or 5-7 slides set to run at 15 seconds if using google slides). Have a title slide and a source slide, which do not count toward slide total. You may pre-record narration, or do a live presentation accompanying your images. Want to do more? True Pecha Kucha is 20 slides set to run 20 seconds, resulting in a 6:20 presentation!

Want a sample? Here’s a professional level scene analysis–you do NOT have to acheive this level of analysis. But the sequence from 1:30-4:30 is a great example of how you might do this. You only need to work with still shots, not clips, unless you want to. Clips require video editing software and patience; stills are quick and easy to drop in and analyze.
