Time to Singularity

Our intuition about the future is linear. But the reality of information technology is exponential, and that makes a profound difference. If we take 30 steps linearly, we get to 30. If we take 30 steps exponentially, we get to a billion. How do we keep up?



    The Public by Default Film Fund

    The Public by Default Film Fund is an independent film fund that seeks to get people engaged with important trending topics and pressing issues of today. How can we drive public conversations towards more meaningful topics? (What’s meaningful to you?) We want great stories that can spark important conversations. At the same time the fund seeks to support experimental projects for new ways of visual narrative. We want innovation in storytelling formats.

    Stories we fund
    There are three types of stories we are interested in funding, unrelated to each other, but free to be combined if desired.
    1. Stories that push the Asian culture forward on the global stage.
    2. Stories that address the pressing issues of today.
    3. Stories told in new types of formats.
