Dekker is a writer / director working on the bleeding edge of technology and storytelling. As chief creative officer of Immersive studio Clever Fox his oversight on brand experiences with Star Wars, Bose, Warner Bros Records, and Disney has made him a go-to expert in VR. He directed and co-directed the first two VR documentaries for Participant Media (An Inconvenient Truth, The Help, Spotlight) as well as the first VR concert film at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre. He’s the creator of the original VR series The Depths, the immersive film series Electric Sheep, and director of the feature film The Arcadian (Starring Lance Henriksen and featuring the music of Perturbator). His novella The Tea Goddess has been one of the top 100 Amazon books in both Cyberpunk and Techno-thrillers for over five years running. His graphic novel Mondo Atomic, reimagining classic sci-fi movies from the 50s and 60s, was profiled in Wired and continues to sell digitally.


Dekker began his journey of merging technology with film in 2002. Based on his photography work with The Violent Femmes, Dandy Warhols, and other recording artists Miramax commissioned him to write and direct Closed Circuit a digital companion short to Naqoyqatsi; the final Godfrey Reggio and Philip Glass collaboration in their decades-spanning trilogy. Closed Circuit was released online by Miramax and selected for the 2002 Slamdance Film Festival.


In 2004 Dekker created the transmedia thriller series Potter’s Field which launched on Sprint mobile phones and told a narrative across video, text messages, and mobile web photo galleries.


In 2007 Dekker and partners launched the national video on demand cable network Illusion. Illusion brought a mix of indie films, iconic science fiction programming, japanese animation and original series to over ten million homes in North America with content partners like the BBC. Heading original series, Dekker was free to develop content in new formats like branching on-demand narratives. Illusion was acquired by what is now Vubiquity in 2009.


From 2010 to 2011 Dekker explored experience-based art with his wife Julia Howe capturing the internet’s imagination with pop-up restaurant experiences (Kaiju Sushi, L’Aldila), streaming radio networks, and viral products (Tentacle Grape soda). Each experience explored a different theme from the environment to spirituality to sexism and blurred the line between real products and memes. Press outlets around the world openly debated the meaning of the sometimes controversial work. With these open-world art projects Dekker and Julia succeeded in finding unconventional ways to prompt engagement with some of society’s most difficult topics.


Joining Participant Media in 2012 Dekker launched their cable network Pivot and headed their streaming service, working closing with the teams of the Emmy-winning Joseph Gordon-Levitt hosted Hit Record on TV and Freestyle Love Supreme with Lin Manuel Miranda. Dekker spear-headed a one-of-a-kind interactive TV experience at Pivot where each show on the twenty-four hour network was tagged with scene-specific interactions that allowed viewers on mobile devices to instantly take action on causes related to what they were watching — in real time. A version of this interactivity was also deployed on TV through a unique partnership with Shazam.


After two decades in media Dekker continues to be a leading industry speaker, essayist, festival juror, and commentator. He is the co-host of the multi-platform talk show The Future is Virtual live Fridays at 6pm / 3pm pacific. Visit the Press / Calendar section for recent and upcoming news and events.
