FUTURE NOW

Exploring the future through short animated stories

The Future Is Now

Taking place 50 years in Earth’s future, each 6-8-minute webisode features one person’s battle to survive environmental catastrophe under authoritarian rule. Our heroes endure through wit, will and technology, using machines and artificial intelligence to prevail in the future and offer hope in the present.

Grounded in Science

Future Now dramatizes hypothetical science questions raised by our distribution partner’s hit show, WHAT IF, the internet’s most-watched science & technology series. Each webisode is based on expert predictions from science and technology fields.
