I'll do your props — PowerPoint templates & content
If you want to see advanced PowerPoint skills, head over to my Skillshare classes, they were all built in PowerPoint. Animation, video, audio clips, music, all synchronized on simple slides and exported as HD video.
What’s revealing to me, about creating these online classes on drawing tessellations, is that I’m using all of my acquired knowledge from the past decades of learning about communications and media. From the broad base in university in communications and visual arts, about human behaviour and how we communicate. Through traditional media: painting, sculpture, film, video, audio, photography, slideshow skills, animation and storytelling. Melding with new media: digital video, audio, pixels and resolution, software and apps.
Following the flow of interests, and shaking my head in wonder at what happens when people let their imaginations explode in creativity. All of this just to tell you that all of my classes on Skillshare were created because of my amassed knowledge and skills in PowerPoint. Script writing, photo stills, animation, transitions, on trigger audio bookmarks, bookmarks on video files, video clips, audio clips, successive stills animation, time lapse photography, live video capture…
These classes, all possible because of my accumulated knowledge in being proficient in PowerPoint!

But for now, I can share a few screen captures of my slides and process.
Seventeen slides containing each their own audio clips. Script details M.C. Escher’s vast body of work. Bookmarks on the audio clips trigger some animation to explain his process.
Video headshot on slide two, followed by six slides containing animation that is triggered by bookmarks on the audio clips.
A complex series of screen captures with on bookmark animation, closely linked to what is said on the audio clips.
Well, I’m suitably impressed at the versatility of PowerPoint. I’ve learned much over the years about a multitude of different media, and have been able to put all of these skills to good use in this huge project. I still have fifteen classes to build and upload to Skillshare. Might take a while.
