    I'm doing a presentation in a months time and I'm looking for presentation ideas using Keynote.

    Here's one I found: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrpajcAgR1E

    If you have seen other really good presentations that can be viewed online, please let me know.

    Thanks.

    I think it also has a lot to do with how good the speech is which contributes to how powerful (or beautiful) the keynote presentation is. Somehow I don't think watching a keynote presentation by itself without at least a voice over is enjoyable (or even coherent)

    Reggie, I always tell my students that it's the story that counts, not the software. I know people who have bought a Mac and Keynote after seeing a terrific Keynote presentation, thinking that the same hardware and software will lead to the same results.

    In any case, I like to point people asking for tips to these three presentations on TED.com:

    How to make an engaging presentation without slides: Ken Robinson.

    How to make an engaging presentation with minimalist slides: Larry Lessig.

    How to present really complicated information in an engaging way: Hans Rosling

    Hope these help.

    That's the Turntable Smart Build, available in the new Keynote.

    That was a big issue, since Keynote exports to iMovie or QT always kept the audio out of sync. I had to extract the video and paste back in the AAC with QuickTime Player Pro. Also, the exported file to iMovie, despite being set to the highest quality setting, was pixelated... so it's better to stick with QuickTime .mov with videos.
