TEDx Sydney 2020 assembled a global cast of contributors to create its title sequence, including our own development, design and animation agency Spillt. Each studio contributed their own unique vision of reality, with the resulting diversity of concept and style supporting reality’s elastic nature. Seen together, this suite of idents combines to illustrate the complexity of the real more completely than any could achieve alone.

Instead of a mirror, a dream.
