To wrap up our three-week takeover of Samsung’s Galaxy Shoreditch Studio in Boxpark, we’re throwing a total tech fest. Following last month’s launch of Visionaries, Dazed Digital’s landmark new video series, we invited some of our favourite new directors to present their latest works in the Samsung space, starting with some  trippy music visuals from directing duo BRTHR and followed by last week’s skate film take-over led by London’s most exciting new skate/art collective, Isle Skateboards.

For the third and final week, we’re bringing in tech pioneers Factory Fifteen, a UK-based film and animation studio who will be using the Samsung Galaxy Shoreditch Studio to premiere their radical CGI vision of the future. Behind it are Jonathan Gales, Paul Nicholls and Kibwe Tavares, a trio of 3D wizards whose love for alternative environments brought them together after meeting in post-grad architecture school. Equipped with a rare amalgam of skills including architecture, 3D visualisation, engineering, animation and photography, they mould their wildly imaginative future scenarios into ultra-detailed shorts that are at once cautionary tales and fantastical celebrations of modern technology’s infinite possibilities.

Expect everything you would never expect the future could hold from the animations they have lined up for their studio take-over. In keeping with this week’s theme the space will also be full of gadgets, including downloadable playlists to an opportunity to contribute your own 15-second short film using Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear.

The Samsung Galaxy Shoreditch Studio is running from Monday 9th December until Tuesday 31st December; opening hours are 11 am-7 pm on Monday to Saturday, 12 pm-6 pm on Sunday at Unit 4&5, Boxpark.
