You will generally get the following guidance if you take courses on presentation skills (this list from write-out-loud.com) Slow speech is usually regarded as less than 110 wpm, or words per minute. Conversational speech generally falls between 120 wpm at the slow end, to 150 - 200 wpm in the fast range. People who read books for radio or podcasts are ...

This requires a repetitive motion and good lighting. You expose the position of the droplet on successive oscillation, but capture it at a slightly different spot on each. Thinking about it from the perspective of a ball bouncing. On the first photo, I take a quick photo of the ball on the ground. The ball bounces up and then back down. I then take a ...

The final presentation has been digitally altered and compressed. Even if it was full quality, you'd likely be unable to tell as film grain can artificially be added (or removed) and color grading can adjust for much of the differences in the way color is captured. If no editing had been done to the source, it would be pretty clear even on your home set if ...

For something shot in a controlled setting, you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between top-end digital cameras and 35mm film. The usual tells would be grain vs noise and highlight handling. Resolution is not really an issue, because even the finest film negative is reduced to (at best) 4K digital as the first step in post. Aside from the taking ...

I received an answer from an actual lawyer: Context matters. As a general matter, it is perfectly "legal" to use anyone's logo or brand indicia in a film, without permission, as long as it is done in a manner which does not falsely suggest the endorsement or sponsorship of the film or the producer's products by the trademark owner. For example, it is ...

In addition to what AJ says, and I am also not a lawyer, one reason for not displaying actual brand logos is if your use (by a character, etc) could be seen as placing the brand in disrepute, or in some way showing it in a negative light. Many companies are very touchy about reputation and won't hesitate to call out the legal beagles.

I think you have the reason that brands don't appear in films backwards. "Promotional Consideration" is the term for a company paying to have their product used in media as a form of advertising. Generally, entertainment companies avoid displaying any brands because they want to be paid for the product to appear and couldn't charge for it if they just did ...

Regarding @rich's suggestion... if you don't have Quicktime, will iMovie work instead? Or some other program? Create your Keynote presentation. Record your speaking part (separately) with an audio recording program. I recommend Audacity. It's a great free application. You can download Audacity from www.sorceforge.com among other places. You'll also want to ...

Do you have the option to display your answer in text on the screen as you're saying it? You could probably speak faster: The viewers would be reading along anyway, so if you were unintelligible for a few words, the viewers would still get the meaning. I agree with @DrMayhem about speech speeds, but I think you can get away with 175-200 wpm and not sound ...

I've not heard of it referred to as a style. The only thing I could imagine it would be is trying to emulate a style similar to the voyeuristic feel which would probably be made up of roughly shot and edited clips of what would normally be a private, intimate scene, but I am not familiar with a "voyeur shot" as a thing.
