Betting Big on Virtual Reality -- Neil Mandt (Founder & CEO, Mandt VR)

Neil Mandt is the Founder and CEO of Mandt VR, a media company specializing in serialized immersive video content. Neil is a Hollywood producer who has worked in both TV (Jim Rome Is Burning, Destination Truth) and motion pictures (Million Dollar Arm, Hijacking Hollywood).

In this episode, Neil explains how he got his start in entertainment as an ABC news producer covering the O.J. Simpson trial. He then maxed out his credit cards to produce his first feature film – a gamble that ultimately paid off, as Neil has enjoyed a successful Hollywood career. Neil believes “A lot of life is timing,” so he’s now betting big again on virtual reality as a medium for richer entertainment experiences and deeper personal connection.

Hosts: James Creech and Luke Wang
