With New York 2150, he wanted to tell a story he connected with and build a realistic sci-fi world with his own aesthetic style. Assouline says” I’ve always been interested in new technology, space, science and psychology, and I wanted my series to explore all of these subjects. I have never done a project on this scale before: designing a new world, its bible, and communicating these aspects to my dedicated cast and crew. I am still working with many artists all over the world to help me bring this vision to life.”
