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.
