Probably the most overused format ever. Everyone makes powerpoints (or the equivalent) for everything. I like slideshows as much as the next person, but generally, boring. They're ok when people spice them up and add something other than text and images, and when they don't have obnoxious transitions
Who wants to read an academic essay?
This could be fun and interesting. Interactivity is always nice because then people can look at what they want and skip over parts as they so choose.
4. Flash Presentation
Flash is Fun. That's why they both start with 'F.'
5. Silent Film
Everyone loves Charlie Chaplin.
6. Old Fashioned Slide Show
This would be sweet because no one does them any more, except for my lighting professor who has been at the U since the 60s.
7. Interpretive Dance
No one would ever understand it, so we could basically do what we want.
8. A Play
Theater: hammer or mirror? No one really knows, but maybe this would make people THINK, because I hear that theater is supposed to do that because it is ART.
9. Museum Exhibit
We could really attract the intellectuals.
10. Panel Discussion
People could ask the questions to which they want to know the answers. Interactive so no one falls asleep.
11. Straight-up Speech
All words, all the time. No frills.
12. Musical Composition
I've heard that music speaks the things that we can't say/don't have words for, so we could say more with music than we could with anything else.
13. Series of Artworks.
A picture is worth a thousand words. A series of pictures would be quite the essay.
14. Photojournalism Story
This is why we all love National Geographic; why not give it a shot?
Make people really understand, and feel, what's going on.
