PechaKucha - Lincoln

Soon after we arrived in Lincoln, Steve jumped into editing his thousands of photos and videos from the trip. He got a call from the local Pecha Kucha organizer and learned that she had a spot open for the upcoming presentation on Friday.

  I'd never heard of PechaKucha either, so here's some background.

- PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. -

Steve had presented 20 of his photos the year prior and was stoked on the experience, so he agreed to do it again with a focus on the Skate the State photos. He jumped into picking out his 20 best photos and was soon all set for FRIDAY.

On the night of the presentation we posted up in the foyer and I sold a few SKATE THE STATE tees and before long, Steve, Phil and Mike took the stage...

I love the color in this shot
