Using a subtle gradient to create the illusion of depth and reflections that create the illusion of a surface, a Powerpoint presentation slide may be turned into a stage. Graphics then enter and exit the stage like characters in a performance with timed animations. Visuals employ transparency so that the stage is always visible and items such as report covers appear in perspective, further accentuating the illusion of three dimensions. The presenter is then responsible for telling the story rather than listing it with bullets. Designed in 16:10 aspect ratio and modifiable to 16:9 for high definition (HD) viewing.
