Haci Maci it’s Pecha Kucha!

Pecha Kucha pronounced “pe-chak-cha” is a presentation style that is basically Powerpoint on crack (20 slides for 20 seconds totaling 6 minutes, 40 seconds). It is all content, no frills; minimal aesthetics with barebones basics. (Read more here). I just finished creating/ scripting my first today and I am kind of digging the terseness of the form. One of my creative writing teachers used to argue that the editing process (even in fiction) is all about cutting down. You just start hacking until you can make every sentence advance the plot by providing some new piece of information. It is fantastic challenge to any kind of communication: making less mean more.
