Ted Thayer whips up cool PowerPoint presentations with amazing animations. He’s 14 years old, but that did not stop him from taking part in iFilm’s Best PowerPoint Moment contest and becoming one of the winners. Visit Ted’s site here…

Geetesh: Tell us what got you started with creating such amazing PowerPoints at this age?

Ted: I started using PowerPoint when my friend showed me a short animation he had done in PowerPoint. It was very simple and had very few pictures and animations. After that he basically forgot about it. I however was really interested. First I made a few take offs on the original. Then when I understood the basic concept, I decided I had to get more. I convinced my parents to upgrade to version 2003. With this, I discovered more and more features. When I thought I knew them all, I came across PPTHeaven. By looking at those PowerPoints, I realized there was so much more I could discover with PowerPoint. That was a couple of months ago.

Geetesh: Tell us more about your entry in the iFilm PowerPoint contest.

Ted: The biking presentation was one of three presentations I made to be submitted. It was also the only one that made it to the finals. This was kind of a spur the moment presentation. I sat down one day, thought of an etremely original topic, and created from there. As I look back I can see things that I could have developed more or cut out but overall im proud of what I did.
