WHO ARE WE?
Clever Whatever is a content studio that specializes in delivering weird and strange ideas from inside our human brains onto computer screens, phones and old fashioned paper using robot brains, creativity and problem solving.
We've worked on everything from TV commercials, comic books and Youtube content to metaverse games and eSports executions.
Our goal is to be production trailblazers leveraging bleeding edge technology to make creating content cooler, faster and less complicated without having to lower our creative standards or water down our ideas.
We believe AI and technology should augment the production process where appropriate, not replace the authenticity you get from human weirdness and creativity.
We’re a creative duo known in the Sandbox Community as PhilFTW and Wayward Escapades and are award-winning game developers that are part of the Creator Fund, Game Maker Fund and are both Sandbox Bootcamp graduates. We placed Top 5 in a Sandbox Game Jam and have had multiple assets selected by The Sandbox to mint in their exclusive collections. Our backgrounds span fine art, advertising, video games, and comic book publishing.
Wayward Escapades has created dozens of assets for the Creator Fund and contributed content to multiple Game Maker Fund projects including Tuschay Studio’s Funguys Kingdom and Tempest Studio’s Monochrome. In 2023 Wayward was added to the internal Sandbox developing team called Cell X where she gets to work on all the top secret cool new IP building branded experience in the metaverse.
We recently wrapped up publishing an experience in The Sandbox's Lunar New Year Event, helping Pixlton and Warner Music Group’s Stickmen Toys launch their avatar collections and our Game Maker Fund Project, Planet Weekly World News, will go live in Q3 2023.
Outside of The Sandbox, PhilFTW (real name Alex) managed the global content production team at General Mills where he was an executive producer and writer on Chex Quest HD, editor and illustrator for the Untold Tales of Chex Quest comic anthology, and is currently a Senior Editor for The Weekly World News. He’s produced hundreds of TV commercials and content projects with brands like Star Wars, MST3K, Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man, Minions, Finding Dory, Critical Role, MTV, and worked with talent like Bradley Cooper, Travis Barker, Richard Sherman, Parry Gripp, Olivia Olson, Danny Trejo and Barry Gordon.
