The film will include interviews with leading dignitaries from Zagreb including: Croatian President Ivo Josipovic,  writer  and academic Predrag Matvejević, Choreographer Milko Sparenblek, award-winning author  Julijana Matananović, and Maximo Estupinan Hurtado leader of the Croatian band Cubismo…

Derek’s inclusion is not only due to his role as a  internationally renowned futurist, but also because he spent a large part of his life living in Croatia, where he gained his Masters in Political Economics from the University of Zagreb, a city he considers home.

Future Entertainment and Events Lab (FEEL)

After a period of intensive discussion and collaboration, Derek Woodgate , President of The Futures Lab, Inc. and Maggie Duval, the CEO of Plutopia Productions Inc, have decided upon a merger of the two organizations under The Futures Lab, Inc. banner. The new business unit within The Futures Lab, Inc. is titled FEEL (Future Entertainment and Events Lab), will be located in Austin, Texas. This is an apt name given Derek’s extensive consulting, authoring and speaking work over the past decade on the future of entertainment, media and communications and his input as Chief Creative Officer at Plutopia Productions. Derek has become recognized as an authority on the application of emerging and immersive technologies and the changing human in the design and production of experiential entertainment with his creation of what are termed “Sense Events.” These multisensory, immersive, interactive events show in practice many of the wonderful, creative inventions and innovations that are under way to future‐proof and augment our future, with content often reflecting ideas resulting from The Futures Lab’s consulting assignments.

The Futures Lab, Inc is in it seventeenth year of operation and will continue its global consulting activities for a myriad of categories and world-renowned clients, extending its network both in terms of territories and personnel. With sister companies/partner offices now in eight countries and having conducted consulting work in over 20 countries worldwide, the new set up will enable FEEL to expand it services which include the creation, design, content acquisition, rendering, curation, production, implementation and marketing of future focused ‘sense events’ into new territories. Plutopia events in the US have always had an international character, involving artists from across the globe.

Maggie was CEO of Plutopia Productions for six years. In addition to the revolutionary five SXSWi and two SXSW Music related ‘sense events’ that she produced during that period, Maggie also created and produced Showdown at the Unobtainium: Tesla vs. Edison and numerous other events featuring famous futures-related speakers and performers, such as Bruce Sterling, Cory Doctorow, Douglas Ruhskoff, etc.

Whilst most of the existing Plutopia Productions team will be integrated into FEEL, Maggie has already confirmed the addition of Randall Aretoo Squires as the Technical Producer. Randall was the technical producer on the Plutopia FutureMusic Summit 2012 and Maggie’s Showdown at the Unobtainium.

These changes coincide with Derek’s recent appointment as Consultant in Residence at DAEL: the Digital Arts and Entertainment Lab at Georgia State University.
