Animation with a Purpose: Jakob Jochmann’s The Fight For Better Presentations

Former student and slide swag superstar, Zachary Peterson shared today’s awesome example of animation with a purpose with me during our recent conversation about pushing Keynote to the very limits of animation awesomeness. I hesitated when he uttered the “Scarlet Letter” because often, presenters overuse animation. My hesitance for animation extends to my own presentations. I rarely use animation or transitions, and have really only skimmed the surface of what Keynote can do. I get serious animation anxiety! Well, I did until watching Jakob Jochmann’s The Fight for Better Presentations. Jakob developed this entire video using Keynote, editing only the music and tempo/pace in iMovie. As someone who only uses Keynote to develop her presentations, I appreciate Jochmann’s approach. But, as someone who believes in the power of a great presentation, I am even more impressed by Jochmann’s purpose–to support the cause for great presentations, for strong communication.  Check out Jochmann’s video below and if you are like me and must know how this is done, Jakob has made the source file for the presentation available for download. Joy!
