Create a short film about a famous artist or musician. Tell the story of their life, and explain why they are historically significant.
Reconstruct significant moments from of their life in dramatic form. You can do it in modern dress and setting if period dress and sets aren't available.
You can do this using an on-screen presenter, or completely with voice-over, or even have the artist narrate their own life. You could interview the artist in the style of a chat show.
Intersperse the presentation with still images and video if appropriate. You could do this as a studio presentation or lecture, and display the images on a screen behind the presenter, or else you can make the images go full-screen.
Create an art gallery to display their work.
Add extra content on-screen by using text to complement what you're saying.
Add appropriate background music to create atmosphere, and ensure you have a striking title sequence.
