We looked at some slide shows in class today. my group studies this one.

check it out, it’s pretty good.

They use great photo’s, good quality which helps to suck the viewer in.

It’s only about 7 photos a minute which is quite slow but the guy in it’s voice is great. He’s french and his voice is very soothing.

While he is the only voice used in the piece, it works well as he just tells his story.

It’s a human interest piece and because it is so short (2:22) it works. If it was any longer viewers would probably lose interest.

One thing I did notice is that the pictures are all just of him within the store he runs. He talks about covering weddings in Greece and different locations around New York where footage would have been easily attainable but there is no visual from that.

Apart from that, it’s a great little slide show. I’m not interested in wedding gear but I watched the whole thing three times and it was still good.
