Two Workshops from the Mississauga Camera Club

Audiovisual Presentation Workshop aka Slideshow Workshop – February 5, 2022

This workshop will focus on how to enhance your AudioVisual (AV) presentation, (the term used by the OCCC). This workshop will look at the guidelines that the OCCC uses to judge AV presentations: quality, production, purpose, and audience appeal. It will also look at how to do a presentation in the ZOOM world with PowerPoint and minimal use of video.

There will be AV examples for demonstrations, critiquing, and discussion.

A sample of some areas that will be covered are:

  • The OCCC guidelines and judging criteria
  • Best practices in creating a presentation
  • Tips and tricks on how to enhance your storytelling theory and techniques
  • The correct usage of Ken Burns and other transition features
  • The dilemma of which comes first: the music or the images
  • How to add meaningful music
  • How to do this in an animated and static presentation format such as PowerPoint, with or without music
  • Questions and Answers
