TEDx Sydney 2018: Humankind
Humankind is both poignant and profound. Cerebral, well-conceptualised and beautifully executed, it is a masterful pairing of exquisite visuals and powerful soundtrack that propels you through the heartbreak and hope of the human journey.
Judges Choice — Rachel Terkelsen
I watched this once, I watched this twice. I shared it. I watched it again and again. I couldn't stop thinking about it. Imagine sitting in the room already intrigued and moved enough to engage with the theme of 'Humankind'… and then to start your day with this powerful, evocative piece. I want, so badly, to travel back in time to feel this in its grand moment. Breathtaking in its craft, gut wrenchingly thoughtful in its cinematography and poignant in its concept - this title sequence not only captures the spirit of TEDx and the quality of Australian motion design today but it also earmarks — quite remarkably — a bubbling, furnace-like tipping point in history.
