South of Hobart at Huntingfield an audience gathered in a gymnasium to listen to some inspiring speeches.
TEDx was in town.
For those unaware of TED, it’s a forum for thinkers and doers to present a short talk under the catch phrase Ideas worth spreading.
The two main annual TED events are held in North America and Scotland, while TEDx events are held at a local level all around the world.
The recent TEDx at Huntingfield had a youth focus and involved a broad cross section of local Tasmanians speakers.
They spoke about how they got into their field of endeavour, what is important to them and reflected back to some of the driving moments and thoughts from their own youth.
Benjamin, James and Lachlan year nine students from The Hutchins School joined me on the day to document and make a film of the event from their perspective.
After a brief pre production meeting, which involved a discussion about what we might need for the film, some basic interview strategies and a very quick camera lesson, I left them take charge of the days filming.
We followed up with a meeting to sort through the raw footage and find a way to shape the film in the edit.
Making a film that documents a performance or event can be a tricky process, so great work by Benjamin, James and Lachlan, who worked as a team to make a film that was a good reflection of the day.
Produced by Troy Melville.
