Episode Info:

During CES, we spoke with John Canning, a senior executive at Digital Domain, one of Hollywood's top-tier visual effects (VFX) creative development studios. Examples of DD's work include the villainous Titan Thanos from Marvel's Avenger film series. Brought alive on the screen by actor Josh Brolin and the Digital Domain VFX team, Thanos is a fusion of human performance & creativity, AI smarts, and cloud computing scale. Now, many of the technologies and techniques used to develop a character like Thanos are being re-imagined for platforms beyond film and television --- holograms, AR/VR, immersive media for indoor and outdoor locations. John's job is to figure out how to make that jump from a few screens to ubiquitous screens, or no screens at all.
