Greetings for the New Year ? 2015 ? the year TExT-TUBE will launch as a media production studio dedicated to creating images of the future. Over the Christmas / New Year period I saw dozens of films about the ‘future,’ someone’s future, a future ? including Andrew Niccol’s The Host and Philip Noyce’s The Giver. This confirmed three things: that films and media productions in general about the future are as popular as ever if not more so; secondly that interest and concern in futures issues are growing stronger; and that movie-viewing audiences are demanding something more of these futuristic films, but aren’t always able to articulate what that something more is. For that something more ? enter TExT-TUBE.
