TEDx SYDNEY


My job as Film Curator for TEDxSydney 2017 was to co-commission and executive produce ten original short films, across a diverse range of genres. Premiering at the International
Convention Centre, each film needed to answer a one-word brief: 'unconventional'. 
More about what the role entailed here. I also acted as Host of Fast Ideas for the
second year running; eight sticky ideas pitched onstage, in 30 seconds flat.
Clips below.

Fast Ideas 2016

Great ideas can hit us at the strangest of times. Shampooing sleepily in the morning shower, gazing out the window on the commute to work, debating a sticky issue over dinner. We know what happens to the big keynote ideas launched from the TEDxSydney stage, but what about those great ideas that everyone else has – where do they go? With TEDxSydney’s annual Fast Ideas competition, great ideas from the audience find a home on the Sydney Opera House stage.

How do you celebrate a property developer's landmark birthday?
With 892 home-baked, hand-iced cupcakes.
Still getting flashbacks.

The brief

To mark their big birthday, AV Jennings were gifting $8k to customers
on 80 properties across the country. They needed a 30 second TVC
w/digital and print touchpoints — and a sticky idea to drive it all.
