FuturePerfect is an extended reality studio creating immersive experiences for global audiences. We build interactive narratives that push the limits of virtual production in order to maximize both cultural and economic impact. Our work is distributed across VR, live performance, physical installations and game consoles. The studio is based in Brooklyn, NY and led by Founder & Creative Director Wayne Ashley and Xander Seren.
Our current work combines game engines, virtual reality, 3D scanning, photogrammetry, motion capture, volumetric video, and animation.
Wayne Ashley founded FuturePerfect Studio in 2008 with the goal of mobilizing the unrealized innovative, artistic, and economic potential of joining two important sectors in New York City: the long established culture industry and the city’s still emerging technology sector. We aimed to build complex works across the fields of art, media, and technology in order to grow new audiences for artistic content across the globe. Over the past 14 years we've created experiences in parks, warehouses, music venues, theaters, and online. We induced intense hallucinations in hundreds of audience members, invented new instruments for an underwater music concert, made theatrical interventions in public libraries, deployed databases and algorithms to generate new dramatic texts, and developed a live animation system for a French Shakespeare production using computer vision.
