This week we were given a new task which is due week 12, and this is to put together a PechaKucha style presentation on one of 8 core figures relevant to our field. (it’s loudly evident that they’re all.. men.. and our year group is about 80% badass females but what can you do.)
So still working with Jack, James and Dermott, we have to research and put together a presentation on… Maurice Noble!
In class Conánn briefly explained that PechaKucha was a form of concise, fast-paced presentation that is widely used all over the world for festivals and conventions. It originated in Japan and is considered to be one of the most effective presentation styles, particularly for the arts!
There are a lot of resources on PechaKucha, I got a lot of my information from this, this and this. but what is very clear is that the presentations are quite strictly 20 slides at 20 seconds each, 6 minutes and 40 seconds long.
400 seconds, which gives us 100 seconds each!
I think the challenge with this task will be taking a figurehead of the animation field and trying to summarise a lifetime of information and a massive career into 400 seconds, all the while doing it justice!
