I have touched on this before but after reading a Lefsetz post over the weekend, decided to expand a little and log the thinking for posterity.

๐Ÿ”— Lefsetz Letter - Company At The Sphere - that’s the link to where ๐Ÿ–‡๏ธ this quote came from that I published this weekend. I said I’d be back…

Around 2016 - ‘the term ‘spatial’ was being coined’. - though I personally think Apple’s ‘spatial’ is a light year or two ahead of where Mr. Scoble was at the time (He’s very quiet these days, isn’t he?)

๐Ÿ–‡๏ธ But February this year I made some pretty logical predictions about the first Vision Pro Movie.

๐Ÿ–‡๏ธ And in October last year I was predicting that The Sphere was a pretty good place to start on a โ€˜Vision Pro Concert Seriesโ€™ - and I think Apple will be the one to do it. Well, maybe not ‘doing’ it - but certainly financing it.

I still think that.

But who will be the director and/or subject matter for this groundbreaking event?

Who’s Out?

Despite Tay Tay’s global appeal, it won’t be her. The Swifties don’t have the money to buy the Pro.

Peter Jackson is deep into the latest tech to do great things, definitely a friend of Apple - and his foray into music with The Beatles is interesting - but no, no Sphere experience and besides ๐Ÿ”— he is deep into his next Trilogy .. as Producer - not Director, but still ..

Original “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy filmmaker Peter Jackson and his partners Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens are producing the movie and “will be involved every step of the way,” Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav said during an earnings call Thursday.

Phish? I dunno - not seeing it.

So Who’s In?

Two very real possibilities …

U2 - deeply intertwined with Apple - remember the album? And then they were first up at the Sphere - and Zane Lowe hanging out with them, talking with them. We have seen some of the footage, but who knows what was taken off the ‘back stage’ for the first Vision Pro movie?

… but I am wondering - and well out of left field - but …

The Grateful Dead - who have always been at the bleeding edge of touring and spectacle

Itโ€™s all fitting in for this bear.

The only hard thing to reconcile is that โ€˜Tay Tayโ€™ problem. Is there an overlap?

I think there just might be.

What do you think?
