The Studio license is a TEDx license designed to provide greater flexibility for you to produce compelling new ideas anytime, anywhere, and independent of your TEDx events.
Studio talks are standalone TEDx talks produced separately from a TEDx event. They are often filmed in closed settings with no live in-person or virtual audience. They may also be filmed on a site-specific location that helps communicate the speaker’s idea (e.g. filming a scientist in her lab, a teacher in his classroom, etc.). This format, different from the traditional stage talk, enables TEDx organizers to more easily experiment with creative new production methods to communicate the speaker’s idea more powerfully. When using imagery and animation, remember to feature your TEDx speaker visibly in the talk.
Studio talk application
Studio talks follow the applicable TEDx Rules and TEDx Content Guidelines. Talk format and duration should be optimized for digital viewers. TED recommends Studio talks aim for a 6-12 minute duration. All talks must be less than 18 minutes. Talks that do not follow the TEDx Content Guidelines and TEDx Rules may not be published by TED.
