ABOUT US

Our projects involve writing and producing original stories about the future

OUR STORY : The TExT-TUBE concept grew from the academic work in Futures Studies, scenarios visualization and trans-media production by David L Wright (PhD), former Associate Professor, and Kosuke Mikawa (MA) a pioneering media student, whose passion for communicating about futures issues evolved into a start-up media production studio originally based at FUTURE UNIVERSITY HAKODATE in Japan. TExT-TUBE is unique as the world’s first dedicated to creating stories about the future by applying concepts, methods and tools deriving from Futures Studies. THE NEED : Despite our media and story saturated world and the numbers of science fiction stories and movies, few, in our opinion, embody the potential that futures-oriented storytelling holds. Our mission is to bring a whole new dimension of intelligence and depth to the craft of telling stories about our collective future/s through the strategic application of leading-edge and pioneering futures analytic tools. THIS WEB SITE : The projects featured in this website are in various stages of development from pre-viz to preliminary concept design through to fully completed.
