PechaKucha

PechaKucha is a presentation style I presented my final presentation in. PechaKucha is a presentation format, you show 20 images in the presentation and each individual image stays on screen for 20 seconds. It does sound pretty boring at first showing an image for 20 seconds but you make the presentation what it is by talking; the focus is more on the verbal side of the presentation rather than a bunch of text and images.

The format was created by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham architects of Klein Dytham architecture; they created this format to prevent presentations being long winded and boring. There is a great quote on the PechaKucha website ‘Give a microphone and some images to an architect — or most creative people for that matter — and they’ll go on forever! Give PowerPoint to anyone else and they have the same problem.’ Meaning when people create a power point from scratch they could just go on forever they have no limit thats what makes the final presentation slow and boring.

I found allot of great PechaKucha presentations online but this was my favourite because you get to see the person presenting in front of an audience which I had to do, it gave a better view of how my own presentation could go because he had to think about his audience how he presented himself to them as well as his presentation.
