Hot Docs and The Globe and Mail teamed up to present Curious Minds Weekend, a 3-day speaker festival showcasing ideas and discussion. Featured speakers include Naomi Klein, Gigi Gorgeous, Dan Savage, Craig Kielburger and the Cast of Orphan Black.
The main direction from them was to include a podium or mic stand so people would clearly know this was a speaker series and was distinctly different from the usual documentary programing. Starting their, we developed the concept of all the little icons each representing a different speaker or subject and connecting them all with brain synapses. I felt it was important to not only show the topics, but to illustrate how these discussions could be linked and overlap each other.
