How Hollywood Is Making Sure the Metaverse Goes Beyond ‘This Moment in Time’ (Video)

TheGrill 2022: “If you don’t play the game, you’re almost guaranteed to lose the game,” Paramount futurist Ted Schilowitz says

Ted Schilowitz, a futurist with Paramount Global who is leading the studio’s pursuits into the metaverse, says there’s a lot of “head scratching” going on when you try and figure out why a company like Wal-Mart has felt the need to dive into the metaverse. But Schilowitz says for his and other companies across Hollywood, the point of dipping their toes into these virtual worlds now is about making sure they’re looking at the metaverse beyond just “this moment in time.”

“We don’t exactly know what’s going to happen here, but we want to make sure we have a place in the metaverse…it’s just better to be in the conversation than to be outside looking in,” Schilowitz told TheWrap as part of The Grill 2022.
