An unlikely cloud hero emerged at this year’s Boxworks event in San Francisco in the form of VyRT founder, musician and actor Jared Leto
Sometimes people say things to you and it takes a while to sink in. Granted, several months is a long time and then some. But it’s only now as I look back over my favourite cloud moments of 2012 – as we stare 2013 in the face – that have I realised insight often comes from unexpected sources.
Jared Leto is a well-known authority on many things. Pick anything from modelling to acting, his band 30 Seconds to Mars and anything in between and he’s probably got a lot of really credible things to say. He was an unexpected but welcome guest speaker at Box’s Boxworks conference in San Francisco earlier this year.
Rather than try and paraphrase what he said post the panel session, here’s our mini Q&A. We only had five minutes with the man himself, but it was enough to ensure his passion for sharing his crafts and utilising what the cloud has to offer shone through.
During your panel session, you talked a lot about sharing things with people and solving problems. That leads us to VyRT and what you’re trying to do with that. Would you be able to expand on what you said earlier about creating opportunities? And how it empowers people and allows you as an artist to do the things you got into this industry to do?
Right now, if you wanted to create a live experience online and share that with people you really have limited choices. You can cobble together some form of corporate sponsorship and broadcast using a third party platform that is generally filled with a lot of other clutter and hope that you get the biggest, broadest audience and that your advertisers were happy with what you did… At the end of it I think you would be largely going through this process and the hopes you were doing it as a promotional effort.
