Clever Society aims to directly address missing perspectives in film, technology and design.  Using immersive media, and storytelling, we create products, exhibitions, events and classes for exploring ideas outside of current societal constraints. Clever Society works with artists who are collectively using storytelling and technology to build ideas for the future.


Wow, what a joy it is working with this team of talented individuals
— you might say one day


We design and fabricate custom tools, and practical effects for filmmakers, photographers, artists and designers. Inquire for more info.



Our events are immersive stories. Participants are dropped into another reality where they question the way we live, work and play.

We'll build you a world if you let us. 



Clever Society classes focus on making information and skill sharing in the areas of technology and digital fabrication freely available. Each class/ workshop consists of an immersive design challenge, focused on teaching fabrication skills, critical design and technology development through making. These classes provide access to technology in a way which provides opportunities for both experienced and inexperienced makers.
