Movie Producer Powerpoint
Below is an idea of how the presentation could be set up with a recommendation for how many slides could be used. Each of the sections has a small description advising you about what should go in each section.
I. Introduction (1 slide)
This should be an opening slide that sets the scene of the presentation. It might have a picture and title on it which should grab the audiences attention.
II. The Pitch (1 slide)
The pitch is a really important part of the presentation. This is where you have 1 slide to try to sell your film. Any talking done with this slide should be about 10 seconds long and be very persuasive and exciting.
III. The play in general and how the plot might change in the film (2-3 slides)
In this next set of slide you need to:
a. say what the play is about
b. say how it might change
c. why might it change
IV. How will you modernize the setting and why you chose that setting (2-4 slides)
This section requires you to:
a. introduce the time period in which you are setting Romeo and Juliet
b. say why you chose that setting
c. make comments comparing old to new Romeo and Juliet
V. How might you modernize the characters and which actors you see playing them and why (2-3 slides)
--With a modern setting you will need to think about the characters and how they might need to change in terms of who they are and what they do.
a. list the major characters and what they do in the original opposed to what they do in your version
b. list the characters and say what actors will play them
VI. Compare one scene from the play with your modern version. (4-6 slides)
In this area you can show how your film will be different from Shakespeare's version. How you can do this is:
Talk about one scene from the play: what happens in it and why it happens, show how yours is different and why, give some examples of how you've changed the language from the original
Conclusion (1 slide)
This is where you round up your presentation. Go over the main points and thank your audience for thier time. Ask them if they have any questions.
******Total number of slides: 13-19
