Alexander Porter is an immersive director, digital artist and business person. He is a co-founder of Scatter, an Emmy-award winning immersive storytelling and software company.
Scatter is recognized for defining the discipline of Volumetric Filmmaking through creating immersive productions, and virtual and augmented reality creativity tools. Scatter’s first product, Depthkit is the most widely used software for volumetric video production.
Alexander's work has taken him from an ill-fated plane ride with Rihanna, to the Isthmus of Corinth cataloguing the minute surfaces of historic lamps, to photographing Bill Clinton, to directing a virtual reality documentary in the New York City subway, to South Korea using a 3D scanner to investigating the role of video games in the lives of one of the most wired societies on earth.
Alexander was founder and creative director at Specular, a design studio pursuing the application of photography, reality capture and speculative design to interactive art. Specular was an inaugural member of New Museum's NEW INC, the first museum-led incubator and maintains a studio in Brooklyn.
Alexander has taught workshops and classes including a photogrammetry workshop called Exquisite Cities in Belgrade, an ongoing course called Computational Portraiture at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program, The Camera of The Future at the Museum of Art & Design.
Above are sketches – works in progress for projects that may or may not ever be born. They're from my Flickr.
For recent commercial & educational work please see my design studio Scatter, where we’re building a volumetric tool called Depthkit. That is where I spend most of my hours.
