TIME AI: Safeguarding Our Future


In 2018, the research team at Crown Sterling made a groundbreaking discovery that mathematicians have been searching for since the dawn of civilization. This single revelation birthed a mission to create the world’s first encryption system based in Quantum Physics, ushering a new era of data sovereignty and personal freedom for every human and institution on earth.

Our challenge was to distill incredibly complex concepts into a theatrical style “trailer”, with beautiful simplicity and sophistication, to be presented at the highest level of government, banking and global institutions.




Understanding TIME AI meant grasping incredibly complex, newly discovered math and algorithms. Our initial meetings with the Crown Sterling team were deep dives with Physicist and Inventor Robert Grant, who graciously led us through his entire process of discovering a pattern in prime numbers, mirror symmetry mathematics, the music of math constants and the application of quantum physics in machine learning encryption.




After our initial meeting, we spent nearly 2 months studying our notes, learning basic quantum physics, researching modern encryption and scripting the structure of our story. We needed to captivate our audience while describing an infinitely complex product. It was a massive undertaking that required countless revisions and constant feedback from the client who was, quite literally, making new discoveries during the process.



From Math to High Art

TIME AI was an entirely new concept that had never before been visualized. We knew the story could only be told through animation, and we encouraged our design team to move beyond technical accuracy into high art. They answered in spades, delivering early story boards of Leonardo Davinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’, featuring the Golden Ratio, that ultimately became the opening sequence of our final video.



Design for the Ages

One of Crown Sterling’s main sources of inspiration was Leonardo DaVinci’s “Vitruvian Man". It appeared several times in Robert Grant’s work and kept surfacing as a reference in our meetings. Once again, our design team delivered, taking this 500 year old drawing into the future with technological elegance.

Ideas Come to Life

In the middle of an intense remote meeting with Crown Sterling, Robert Grant grabbed his sketchbook and began drawing how TIME AI behaves through Particle Physics and Quantum Entanglement. Periodically, he would hold his sketch up to the camera, blowing us away with each new concept, and helping sculpt a creative vision in our mind. Our team then visualized this sketch in 3D, adding depth, movement and futuristic style to an uncharted concept.




From his early drawings to his ultimate scientific publication, it was apparent that Robert Grant had solidified his Prime Pattern discovery with both geometric and mathematical precision. We sought to honor this monumental breakthrough with pinpoint accuracy while elevating it’s story through meticulous and beautiful animation.
