Growing up with Southern California in his backyard, Ian Nelson chose to go into the entertainment industry, a decision that seemed almost inevitable. Though he had a true, deep love for film, he soon felt that Hollywood was not as innovative a sector as he wanted and so made the leap to immersive. In this episode, Ian shares with us how he went from some of the most renowned Industry companies to Ryot Studios (right after Jaunt) and also lets us in on how 5G will shake things up for immersive.


Ian Nelson is the Senior Manager of Business Development at RYOT, Verizon Media’s Emmy Award-winning content studio and innovation lab based out of Playa Vista, CA. In his role at RYOT, Ian oversees partnerships to develop products, formats and creative projects which leverage the power of Verizon’s 5G network. Prior to RYOT, Ian was the Content Acquisition & Programming Manager at Jaunt, an immersive content start up backed by The Walt Disney Company, Madison Square Garden and Evolution Media Partners.
