Hollywood Tries Its Hand at Virtual Reality Content


Warren Mayoss, head of technology product development at DreamWorks Animation.

Warren.mayoss@dreamworks.com - in spreadsheet

Mayoss’ team at DWA has been working for the past few years with Oculus and USC’s Institute for Creative Technologies to address what may be the most important question of all in this sector: Just what is VR video content, anyway?

Cory Strass-burger, a producer for VR who has created content for clients including NBCUniversal and Lionsgate
“There is a lot of energy in Hollywood around immersive video as a new content type that they’re interested in exploring,” said Nick DiCarlo, VP-g.m. of immersive products and virtual reality at Samsung. “That all looks like real investment and the risk-taking necessary to get something like this off the ground, so I’m very encouraged.”
“If Magic Leap makes projection-based VR the thing we need to focus on at certain point, then we want to be flexible enough to transition to whatever the right thing is at the right time,” said James Milward, president of Secret Location, which produced a VR experience for the Fox series “Sleepy Hollow.” “VR is an optimal platform that we’ll go hard in, but we won’t be boxed in.”
