Well, w/ the support of my PLN and more specifically Shelly Terrell, I have decided to create my very first Pecha Kucha. Which is the name for a presentation that is 20 slides long at 20 seconds each. However, after more research I have discovered that this term also means "bane of my existence" which is exactly how I felt after giving it a shot.
To make a long story short, I switched between using PP and Keynote to create the presentation and after many many many attempts was able to record my audio. Although, after finishing w/ the "bane of my existance" aka Pecha Kucha, I realized that my timing was a tad off and I was two seconds over.
Worst case, I'm going to put this movie into iMovie and just chop the last two seconds off. I really enjoyed this learning experience but realized that it is hard to record your narration when having to be aware of changing your slide every 20 seconds. For some reason, I just couldn't figure out how to record my audio w/ preset timings at 20 seconds a slide, meaning I had to manually switch the slide each time. NOT FUN.
I can see how this works better being improvised (which I did) and having somebody switch the slides for you. I really think I could do a good job at a "live" event.
That being said, this was a great learning experience and I look forward to my next attempts. I recommend contacting Shelly Terrell for more info on Pecha Kucha.
