PechaKucha Presentation

Pecha Kucha Chicago: Repetition and Variation (Live) from Felix Jung on Vimeo.

PechaKucha is a simple 20x20 presentation where the presented shows 20 images for 20 seconds and the images advance automitically as the presented talks along the images.  PechaKucha or Pecha Kucha (Japanese ペチャクチャ) follows a format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called PechaKucha Nights (PKNs).  PKN's were designed in 2003 by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Tokyo's Klein-Dytham Architecture (KDa), as a way to attract people to SuperDeluxe, their experimental event space in Roppongi, and to allow young designers to meet, show their work, and exchange ideas.  In 2004, a few cities in Europe began holding PKNs, the first of several hundred cities that have since launched similar events around the world.  As of June 2012, PechaKucha Nights were held in 534 cities worldwide.

You will be creating a PK presentation to describe your song that will need to be presented to the class as your first quarter milestone.  

Here are some tips to making a PechaKucha Presentation:
  • The images should tell a story
  • Use as litte text as possible.
  • No more than 4 images per slide
  • Make things consistent
Places to find images:
  • Google Search:  Images
  • Flickr
  • Image*After: A large, free collection of photos. Images can be downloaded and used for both personal and commercial purposes.
  • Stockvault: A photo sharing site with images from designers, photographers and students. Commercial use is NOT allowed, but personal use or internal presentations is acceptable.
  • morgueFile: The site name refers to old files/notes kept by criminal investigators and newspaper reporters, for use as quick references. High-res images are available for personal and commercial use, so long as the image is altered in some way.
  • Pow!: A large collection/list of stock photography resources.
  • iStockphoto: Royalty-free images, available for purchase based on a “credit” system. Great quality, but you need to pay for the images (worth it though).

You can create the presentations using the keynote presentation on Apple.
