Growing up to an expatriate family in Indonesia, Nicholas Pudjarminta moved through nine different homes in four countries by the time he was an early teen. Meeting people from different cultures and religions he gained an enthusiasm to tackle the problem of empathy. How do we get people to understand each other? At age eleven, he discovered the power of technology and storytelling. Since then, he’s produced, designed, and developed virtual reality projects that have attracted the attention of the LA Times, been recognized by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, and received distribution from Meta.
At the moment, he is technical producer of Alex McDowell’s (Fight Club; Minority Report) World Building Media Lab. They are currently developing Inner Space, a project that explores an empathetic, data driven simulation of the human cell.
