TEDxMelbourne, one of the local chapters of global thought leader TED, has partnered with Cummins&Partners to launch their first major event in their tenth anniversary year – Limitless.

Featuring a range of high profile speakers, Limitless explores the question ‘what’s on the other side of impossible’ for humankind, as we combine creativity, collaboration, and ever-evolving technology.

To help launch the event, Cummins&Partners has created the short film ‘Life Assist,’ inspired by the themes of Limitless.

‘Life Assist’ was produced completely in house using C&P’s internal directors, producers, and creatives.

Cummins&Partners’ creative director, Luke Wallis: “Already we can see that a side effect of rapidly improving technology is social awkwardness – we DM, sext, message, Facetime, but don’t actually talk.

“Staring at the three dots of an incoming text message is anxiety-inducing.

“We wanted to take this idea to its logical conclusion, and use it to ask more questions.”

TEDxMelbourne licensee and curator, Jon Yeo said: “Limitless explores how we understand ourselves and the world we live in.

“The future is both uncertain and exciting.

“We are delighted to have Cummins&Partners work with us to explore this journey.

“They understand and appreciate the values and attention to detail required to bring an event like this together.”

Wallis added: “We were honoured to work with a group that has helped revolutionise content and thought leadership across the globe.

“TEDxMelbourne’s ‘Limitless’ is closely aligned to C&P’s philosophy of what can be achieved creativity, imagination, and innovation.”
