For our TALONS 9 science final, instead of doing a TED talk I’ve decided to make a TED- Ed animation. I did say that my In-Depth wasn’t going to over right? The main difference between a TED -Ed original and a TED Talk is that TED-Ed is usually shorter, more informative and visual-based, while a TED Talk is usually longer, slower, and idea-based. Both are equally amazing. Here’s a link to both of their websites, I highly encourage you to check out both of them:
Since I usually binge watch TED talks and TED-Ed a lot, this project was very exciting for me. And since I just finished my In-Depth project on animations, what could be better to combine those two together? TED-Ed was one of the reasons that I chose animations for my In-Depth and every lesson they do is worth sharing. I was very inspired by the style and colour choice of one TED-Ed lesson in particular on depression. In that lesson it said that genetics may be related to depression, so that kind of got me into choosing this topic.I’ve decided to use the same style as that animation as well as the black dog representing depression because I really like that art style. Here is the link to the original TED- Ed that I based my animation off of. It’s also because I was in a rush to finish this animation in three weeks so I used two colours instead of multi-colours for this animation.
I hope you enjoyed this imitation TED-Ed, because I certainly did!
Thank you very much.
