Sight & Sound: How to Create an Effective AV Show

How many times have you sat through a photographic ‘slide show’, longing for it to end? Have you ever created a show yourself and perhaps been disappointed by the response from family and friends? Have you wondered what it takes to make a really good show – one that will leave your audience asking for more?

In this presentation, Kas Stone shares some helpful tips for selecting the photographs, music and other audio-visual ingredients that go into making an effective AV show, and techniques for putting them together for maximum impact. Common mistakes are discussed – and how to avoid them! – and examples from Kas’s collection are shared for illustration. The evening also includes a constructive critique of shows submitted by BPS members to this year’s Sight & Sound essay competition.
