MORE INFO ABOUT FUTURE PROOF
“So what’s this all about again?”
There are several core elements that separate Future Proof from anything else on the market:
> An original IP and aesthetic best defined as “Silly Orwellian.”
>A cast of characters that develop and interact with you over the course of the event to help push the narrative with the help of you, the Patron!
> Spectacle and Showmanship designed and executed to be as absurd as possible without breaking the minds of our audience.
> Not settle for just a Broadway audience, an indie film audience, an internet fanbase, etc., but to hit the sweet spot between people on the crossover of each of these groups; reach out to any and everybody who we think will enjoy the things we make!
> Create a unified transmedia experience centered around dynamic narratives, capitalizing on the strength of IP over a single format or platform.
> Provide an experience that is 110% more FUN than anything else on the market in a given field.**
> Create an experience that starts from the minute you buy a ticket, and lasts for as long as you want on as many platforms as you can think of.
> Only the finest-quality satire, and artisanal hand-crafted jokes, large and small.
> Accepting that all things are derivative in one way or another, and embracing it.
> Entertainment! Showmanship!
> Never settling for anything less than the best!
> Providing 110%, and Giving 110%
> Collective, collaborative creation.
> At the end of the day we’re in the joke business, not the drama business.
> Produce all our content in-house.
> Constantly expand and develop ‘cutting edge’ tech to suit our designs.
> Stretch our budgets to the maximum reach they can take – make a lot with a little.
> Critically hammer at our content until it is more than “good enough.”
> Turn negatives into positives.
> Take our fun seriously, and make sure our Patrons have it as much as possible.
All of that In Longform Text Format
We are a fully-invested for-profit LLC, and make a majority of our money off of direct ticket sales from our live shows. In another world we would be considered a ‘startup,’ given the timeframe of our existence, and while we may experiment more than an established production company, it’s in the service of creating the best experience we can for our audiences.
We believe in content that is ‘platform-agnostic’, and will use whatever methods tell the story in a way that feels real and engaging.
Our shows and content are designed methodically, and all of our content is produced in-house by our staff and/or with the assistance of reliable contractors. While we try not to take ourselves or the nature of our content too seriously, we make the enjoyment of our Patrons paramount to how we conduct business.
We never punch down with our jokes, we try to make things as accessible as possible while maintaining a consistent tone and style, and we go out of our way to ensure narrative integrity and continuity. We aim to ensure our fans are repeat viewers and participants in our content, as opposed to trying to promise the unobtainable with splashy marketing or hyperbole.
We operate on (and always come in under) an ultra-light budget for every one of our productions, believing that limitations and boundaries allow for greater creativity, and we recycle and reuse every one of our physical and digital assets until every possible unique and creative spin on an idea has been expended.
We don’t publish jokes until we think they’re funny, and while we may have high-concepts, we go out of our way to make things as enjoyable as we can for anybody willing to pass through our doors.
