TEDxOttawa

Opening Sequence

This opening sequence was meant to evoke a sense of wonder from the audience, in order to mentally prepare them for the talks that followed. Through the use of sound design and cel animation, the aim of this piece is to demonstrate that your view of reality is largely based on perspective – that a shift in perspective has the ability to shape and re-shape what you consider to be real.

This idea ties into the theme of the event, Who Knew?, where the speakers ranged from scientists to entrepreneurs, from designers to Olympic athletes, all of whom were discussing topics that are happening in conjunction with our lives without our knowledge.
