Every year, TEDx Sydney commissions a handful of films to play between speakers. This year, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of TEDx, the theme of the event is legacy.
BMF Sydney contributed films in 2015, 2017 and 2018. In keeping with the theme, this year the agency took a slightly different tack. BMF teamed up with Glue Society director Paul Bruty to create DIY.
DIY is a portrait of Colin Taylor, a man who’s lived one hell of a life. BMF creative director Dantie van der Merwe said, “We found Colin by chance, and his story blew us away. Colin has built four houses, an ocean-going yacht, a trimaran, and an aeroplane – which he learnt to pilot. And he’s not done. Colin’s final project may be his most interesting one yet.”
