Oops, that was last night. Sorry for the too late notice. Hopefully there will be another one soon.
Though this might be of interest to the group -
What is Pecha Kucha Night?
Pecha Kucha Night, devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham (Klein Dytham architecture), was conceived in 2003 as a place for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each – giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. This keeps presentations concise, the interest level up, and gives more people the chance to show.
Pecha Kucha (which is Japanese for the sound of conversation) has tapped into a demand for a forum in which creative work can be easily and informally shown, without having to rent a gallery or chat up a magazine editor. This is a demand that seems to be global – as Pecha Kucha Night, without any pushing, has spread virally to over 100 cities across the world.
20 slides x 20 seconds = 400 seconds of fame.
Doors at 7:30, show at 8:00
Admission is free with a two drink minimum.
62 S 2nd St · San Jose
The theme for the first PKSJ event is REFLECTION.
Pecha Kucha themes set a tone but should not dictate a content barrier for presenters. Arguably an association with the theme is preferred, and probably expected by the audience.
Presentations will include:
"The Perils of Reflection" Michael Moon will be presenting . He adds "it’s likely to be perilous. "My Problems with Monkeys" by stand up comic and user interface designer Howard Cooperstein
"I Shoot at Night" a review of amazing long-exposure night photography and stories about exploring abandoned places in the dark
"Form over Function" - Surprises from a graphic designer
"Making of Crackpot Comics" a small filmaker on a budget makes a big "Clerks-style" movie as a series of webisodes. Sounds like a movie in itself? - Likely a sneak preview too.
"Myth to Comic" - Taking the millennium-old Persian Shahnameh myth into modern comic books
"Creating Your Resume on YouTube" this one has to be seen!
And several more...
