London, UK – from more than 300 applications, the 3 final projects from the first Future  of Film Incubator were launched at a Showcase Reception on the evening of January  31st, 2023 at the Epic Games London Innovation Lab

Future of Film is proud to present the artists Ben Mole, Zinha and Frederic van  Strydonck and their diverse projects that cross film, TV, animation and the metaverse: 

  • “SAVE POINT” by Ben Mole, a science fiction adventure feature about a gamer  using her unique skills to rescue her errant father on a distant planet. 
  • “MOON MAMA” by Zinha, an immersive experience and digital storytelling  movement featuring the Afro-deity Moon Mama, who journeys to earth to save us  through the power of dance. 
  • “RIGHT CLICK STORY” by Frederic van Strydonck, a new animation studio  dedicated to telling stories for – and with – the passionate and growing Web3  community.  

The projects are the output from Future of Film’s unique 8-month ‘format neutral’  incubation programme designed to find, nurture and hone original stories and bring  them to market. Read more about the projects here.
