Ep. 134 - Paramount Pictures’ Futurist Ted Schilowitz on VR, AR & Mixed Reality

Inside Outside

Ted Schilowitz serves as Paramount Pictures' Futurist, as well as an advisor to the University of Nebraska’s Johnny Carson School of Emerging Media Arts. He sees himself as an explorer, with an eye toward storytelling and creativity. His modern lab rat approach, allows him to experiment with all types of technology and determine what makes it valuable for the future. Brian Ardinger, Inside Outside founder, and Ted discuss the intersection between storytelling and human behavior. Specifically, they address next-generation screens to create the illusion of reality.  Highlights from the discussion: - VR is an emerging process of teaching people about new ways of using more powerful screens in their lives.  - People want entertainment when they want it and where they want it. Connecting the screen to your eyes and your brain, something that doesn’t exist yet at scale.  - Experiments with VR, AR, and mixed-reality headsets. Logging hours in experimenting, then bringing back experiences to the studio.  - The power is accelerated to create an illusion of things that aren’t real. There are ethical, safety and truth concerns. - Mixed reality or extended reality is the thing to watch.  - VR is a multi-level/multi-year evolution. We’ve seen good progress, investment, and predictive analysis.  - Viable businesses are enterprise and heavy and light industrial markets. Things are getting adopted when people use them differently.  - Read The Innovators Dilemma by Clayton Christianson. - How can people tap into creativity and adaptability? Read Creativity Inc, about Pixar, where story means everything and technology is used in service to the story.  To find out more or connect, find Ted on Twitter at @virtualtedfor email him at ted_schilowitz@paramount.com.

Replay: Ted Schilowitz (Paramount) on the Magic Leap One and the Potential of AR (Part 1)

AR Show with Jason McDowall

Preamble:This episode is another highlight and one of the most popular from the year. What follows is part 1 of my interview with Ted Schilowitz, which was recorded in early August, 2018. Ted is a futurist at Paramount Pictures and a passionate believer in the potential for smartglasses, including Magic Leap’s efforts. Magic Leap publicly launched shortly after we recorded this interview, but Ted’s comments about the device are still relevant today.----Ted Schilowitz is a Futurist at Paramount Pictures, where he explores the future of media and technology, and tries to suss out where things are headed. Prior to Paramount, Ted held a similar role at 20th Century Fox.Throughout his career, Ted has successfully moved back and forth between creating live-action content and creating better tools to make that content. For example, Ted came to Fox from RED, the digital camera company. There he was the first employee and chief product evangelist responsible for convincing Hollywood studios and directors that digital was the future.Prior to that, he founded another hardware technology company that supported the creative development process. That one is now part of Western Digital. He was also a producer and director, and started a successful production company.When you put all of those experiences together, the title of “Futurist” at Paramount Pictures seems appropriate.This is the first of two parts of my conversation with Ted. In this first part, Ted and I talk about where his passion comes from, and the difference between immersive and spatial entertainment.He shares why current VR is good, but not nearly good enough, to reach its potential. We also explore Ted’s perspective on the current crop of AR smartglasses, including his take on Magic Leap. He advises us to be patient and is very hopeful for where they are going in the future.We recorded this interview in person on the Paramount Studios lot in Hollywood, California. I think you’ll love this one.You can find all of the show notes at thearshow.com.
