Improving audio slideshows

It takes more than an interview and some pictures to create a good audio slideshow, but too many slideshows are built on those ingredients alone.  As a result, they seem to be slapped together rather than produced.  Multimedia editor Colin Mulvaney of the Spokesman Review says slideshows have become predictable and boring.  One of his pet peeves:

Stop having the subjects introduce themselves. Really, stop it! The biggest cliché in audio slideshows is the “Hi, my name is…” intro. Instead, use a lower thirds title.

Mulvaney has learned a thing or two about what it really takes to create a strong audio slideshow.  Check out his tips at Mastering Multimedia.
