The TED Talks series is some of the best videos ever in terms of pure inspiration and education in what’s going on with the technology, entertainment, and design industries. They feature all kinds of important people in the industry, where they talk about what they’re currently working on and such. This new TED Talk that just premiered is by a man named Peter Weyland and its from.. the year 2023.. (and yes, its a real TED Talk, kinda)
TED Talks collaborated with the makers of the film, Prometheus, for one of the most interesting viral marketing campaigns in a while. If you guys know your Alien lore, you know that Weyland is one part of the company heavily involved in the Alien films. The upcoming film, Prometheus, is a spiritual/spin-off prequel to the Alien series and it seems that Peter Weyland and his Weyland Industries is heavily involved in the film. The short film, of sorts, (none of the footage is from the film) is actually really well written and shot in a way that it feels like an actual TED Talk. There’s some really dope one-liners in it.
Here’s the Prometheus teaser for those of you who haven’t seen it yet. Its so beautiful.
