MOVIE REVIEW To begin with, David Gallo is articulate in his presentation, he engages the audience in a modest tone of voice. His voice pitch is moderate and modest in nature throughout his presentation and speech. He uses simple language and words which are easily understood by the audience such as flying turkey. Throughout the presentation it is elaborate and clear that he uses the full stage thereby reaching most corners of the room. This means that all people feel engaged since David Gallo reaches close to their proximity thus engaging them on a personal basis. It is important to note and mention that he involves humor thus introducing comic relief ensuring the audience relaxes to engage during the presentation. Another advantage and merit is that David Gallo uses hands and gestures to make points clearer and show vigor during the presentation (Dunlap amp. Lowenthal, 2011). This is to mention that the use of body language enhances the ease of putting the message across thereby stressing on the important issues and points. In some instances, the speaker uses short sentences which in conventional knowledge are used to portray tension. Thus, the fact that David Gallo uses short sentences at the end of the presentation is akin to introducing tension or some sort of edginess in the presentation. In all fairness and respect, the use of short sentences is a short coming of the presentation. Similarly, there is less use of rhetoric questions in the presentation which means that the presentation translates to a monologue. Thus, few uses of rhetoric questions reduces the presentation to a one man show.
Sir Ken Robinson
From the outset, it is notable that he uses a fast paced approach of talking in his speech. This is so because one easily notes that he speaks in a relative fast pace. It is important to note and mention that the voice of Sir Ken Robinson is commanding and authoritative in a way and manner. In terms of his use of stage, he does not move around the stage and instead stands in one place. This is to say that he does not engage the whole audience effectively. Secondly, he maintains eye contact with the audience thus improving the appeal of the audience and attract their attention. Equally interesting in the presentation of the speaker is that he maintains facial expression which are used to mean and imply different things. For instance, during the times of humor, he contorts his face in a friendly way therefore engaging the audience during the light moments.
On the other hand, this presentation is non-interactive because the speaker seems to be static and stand in one place in most of the session (Robinson amp. Creativity, 2006). Secondly, the fact that the speaker, Sir Ken Robinson uses a commanding and fast voice reduces the chances of people or the audience in enjoying the presentation.
Comparatively, I would encourage a person to use the presentation skills of David Gallo because they help the audience to be engaged and focused during the discussion and presentation. Similarly, it would help an aspiring speaker to learn and engage the audience effectively such as body movement and balanced tonal variation.
