Prezi Design Strategies

Can we apply concepts used in video production to Prezi design? Let's find out! In this Prezi I pull terms from Bruce Block's book The Visual Story: Seeing the Structure of Film, TV, and New Media. Let me know what you think.

Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, February 15, 2013 6:44 PM

Some great advice here on creating powerful slideshows
