Trollbäck + Company

(T+Co) Executive Creative Director Jakob Trollbäck, recently wowed TEDYouth attendees with his :30 animated opening. The day-long conference took place on November 17th at the Times Center in New York City, and was streamed live by

TEDxYouth

Day participants around the country and the world.

Trollbäck, 13, created what he calls, "a visual metaphor for the conference's 'carnival of ideas' theme," working with Adobe After Effects, Element 3D and Cinema 4D. The 3D animation takes us on a voyage through a “solar system” constructed from the building blocks of life -- an atom, molecule, DNA, and cell -- before journeying through man's tools of scientific inquiry, such as a deconstructed timepiece and satellite, and ultimately resolving on the TEDYouth logo.

"We were blown away by August's visualization of our conference concept," notes Kelly Stoetzel, Content Director at TED and TEDYouth co-host. "He is an incredibly talented young filmmaker."

TEDYouth attendees also had the opportunity to participate in T+Co’s stop-motion lab and create their own short films using the studio’s recently released stop-motion and timelapse iPhone app called Step. To view a montage of the work:

TEDYouth coincided with 100 independent TEDxYouth Day events worldwide. More than 20 scientists, designers, technologists, explorers, artists, performers and others shared short lessons on what they do best, dazzling the student audience with mind-shifting stories and creative inspiration, and sparking curiosity to dive deeper into a broad array of topics.

Composer Michael Montes of Sacred Noise in New York provided original music and sound design.
