Pecha Kucha - get to the point. 20 slides in 20 seconds. Talk about what you want. Your city probably has a night for it.

For those with imaginations dizzied by the one-second-per-slide presentation rate implied in the FPP, the recommended rate appears to be 20 seconds per slide.

Yeah that got me for a second.

Yes, as anaphoric says, it's more like 20 slides in 6 minutes and 40 seconds. --about the length of my attention span. Glad my city is on the list. I look forward to checking this out.

six minutes forty seconds? Even I can sit through that.

Holy crap, this is awesome. I really, really like this.

Doh! Yes, it's 20 seconds per slide.

I was at one recently and a serious, high-concept talk about an ambitious architectural project was followed by an endearingly funny presentation of a very simple list of 20 things that the artist liked.

Sounds like Ignite: 20 slides in 5 minutes.

Some coworkers helped put on the Milwaukee one recently, it sounded like a really cool idea.

I keep wanting to check out the Brisbane ones, but they always clashed with something else I have on. It seems to be very design-focused - do non-designers ever present at a Pecha Kucha?

P-K Brisbane rules. Design's a pretty broad tent, but the Brisbane organisers are all architects, so it inclines in that direction. Favourite presenter so far is a guy who did animatronics for movies, horrible gribbly aliens etc.

What other similar innovative presentations exist out there, besides Pecha Kucha?
posted by divabat at 10:33 PM on June 24, 2008


Oh yeah - and P-K Brisbane is on TONIGHT! Highlight: Andrew Leavold from Trash Video on that Philipino midget spy movie.

One of my clients introduced me to pecha kucha, as a presentation style and as an art form. It's amazing.
