TED: It's Not Amazing Enough from Duncan Cowles on Vimeo.

TED – It’s Not Amazing Enough

It’s Not Amazing Enough is a film I was commissioned by TED, to make and premiere at TED 2018: The Age of Amazement in Vancouver, April 2018.

Stylistically, a companion piece to my earlier Channel 4 short film Taking Stock, this film explores diminishing attention spans, the pressures to excel and perform in our careers and crippling self-doubt.





Nothing is ever good enough… or at least, that’s what we tell ourselves.

The pressures of having to make an amazing film send this deadpan deep-voiced filmmaker into a crippling spiral of self-doubt and comic indecision.

It’s Nice That
