This year’s competition attracted 79 entries from New Zealand,
Australia, South Africa, Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands.
For the first time, all the top awards went to entrants from other countries.
The successful AVs will be shown once at the Presentation Evening which is held in Tauranga in early August.
51 I have recently reviewed the successful AVs as I was making up the programme for the Presentation Evening.
What I noticed was that more than half the successful programmes had a spoken commentary, but that included only two successful NZ programmes.
About a quarter of the programmes had a written explanation and those with text were all from New Zealand and the Netherlands ลาวสามัคคี วีไอพี.
With a spoken dialogue the viewer is able to listen to the story while watching and interpreting the images.
Some programmes had the text on the first few slides, so the audience knew what to expect. This works as long as there is not a lot of text.
Because some people read faster than others, deciding how long to show each slide is an issue.
Some people don’t have time to read everything and others sit and wait for the next slide Tauranga Audio-visual Salon 2018.
Text written on the images means that people need time to read the text and then to ‘read’ the image.
This slows down the presentation of the story so, if you do this, it is important to keep the text brief.
So, why are so many of us reluctant to add a spoken commentary to those programmes which would suit it? Often it is because we don’t like hearing a recording of our own voice.
To start with, we are often so uncomfortable speaking to a microphone that our presentation becomes stilted and unnatural. Keep trying, and after a while you will overcome that problem.
Imagine you are talking to a group of friends and that will help you to be more natural.
If you are lucky enough to know a trained speaker you could write the narrative for that person to speak.
However, if the person you ask to speak the narrative has no training it is much more difficult.
I have tried this and found it quite unsatisfactory. You know what sort of emphasis and expression you want
and you have to convey that to a person who has no idea what sort of mood you had in mind. It is often easier to do it yourself.
