Who is Scott Morgan?
Scott Morgan grew up mostly in S.F. and D.C., opened several small businesses by 25, then moved to Beverly Hills in 1985 after his modeling and acting career in Chicago landed him national commercials, followed by silent bits, commercials, and stunt driving for television shows. Quickly he moved to the other side of the camera, his first screenplays earned top agency representation, and Options with A-List Actors, Studios, and Producers. His first film Playing Solitaire was shot on 35mm, won Best Picture and Best Director in the Las Vegas and Los Angeles Video and Film Festival. He was always a tech nerd, which qualified him to be the first Producer/Director to shoot a High-Definition Sitcom test pilot on the same week as Jay Leno was testing High Def. From that point on, Scott was mentored by Hollywood legends in the art of filmmaking. One mentor, Barry London (Co-Head of Paramount) urged him in 2012 to use his knowledge to open a Studio in Singapore if Scott was right: that China was the future for Hollywood. Scott spent 6 years meeting with foreign studios and investors to prepare for a greater future for Hollywood-China film as both an art and an evolution in the financial profit system, knowing Streaming was on its way after all the years he spent in Japan and China.
What’s the story behind Crypto Integrity Tao/Creativity First Films?
In China travel, I realized the truth about Hollywood had to be revealed for it to honor Asian investors. Naturally, my skills in writing led me to write breakthrough books on the future of Hollywood. As it became more obvious that cutting edge technology like Apps and Games would dominate film and television, I was first to innovate to a higher evolution of merging the two industries under one roof. This required four more books, all kept secret until now. This combination maximizes profits on a level that Hollywood surely never can imagine and will rival the biggest names in technology. By designing the launch of both companies, they complete the entire “food chain” and life-revenue of entertainment and our most advanced Edge Technology, which no existing Studio or tech company could deliver for years.
What was the most difficult part of your experience in the early beginnings?
Realizing that the vision was so many years ahead of even the most innovative technology, financial systems, and film production systems required that I work alone to complete all stages for a paradigm shift that will have such fantastic impact on the art of filmmaking. I had to turn down many VC offers because they would prevent the greatest potential of the technology for competition reasons, and they don’t know enough about what it really takes from our legendary Actors, Directors, Producers, Art Directors, Game Designers, and Screenwriters to solve (or even care to solve) Hollywood’s greatest systemic problems. Going past that, Creativity First Films will put the creators first, now that corporate heads have proven set on ruining to the creative process.
What are you most proud of regarding your business?
That I did not give in to fast, big money – and stayed true to my three goals. First, to bring a new system Actors begged for so they can deliver the incredible “Power of Story” in a visual form. Second is to use my insider knowledge to protect Chinese Studios and global investment funds to guarantee profits on a level today’s Studios can’t even imagine yet (and would never allow because they only want China if it remains dependent upon Hollywood.). Third is trusting my gut to innovate the Next-Gen “interface” on the ultimate level delivers a new era in the media industry. My tech books prove I’m two years ahead of Silicon Valley – that’s pretty cool (but darn, no one is asking for autographs because Screenwriters don’t get a posse and there is no sycophant cred being in a selfie with them.).
What is your vision for the future of Crypto Integrity Tao/Creativity First Films?
The leading investment class worldwide is technology, mainly Games and NFT’s. I add the higher interface with Augmented Reality, IoT, X.R., Super Apps, Blockchain DLT. and forms of cryptocurrencies and tokens. But to reach ultimate potential it must be in a vertical business model and work with the dexterity of the human hand; therefore, the two companies are unique in delivering both prerequisites at once. The films and shows deliver the Super Apps, Killer Klusters, V.R., and X.R. experiences that will blow everyone’s mind—as early as November. But besides profits, by giving Actors and Screenwriters a share of Box Office Gross and Merchandise, this solves the Guild problems with agencies and abusive partners in charge. Possibly the most important long-term factor is that only Creativity First Films will honor the 12-week theatrical window, giving theaters what they need for financial health and independence from cannibalizing Studios, which is extremely important in film and the arts. And nothing in home viewing can compare with the positive impacts on humanity when a “hero story” is shared in a group scene – the way it saturates our senses while we absorb the humanity surrounding us as an audience is how civilization developed virtues, integrity, cultures, and free will.
What’s your advice for the businesses that are trying to adapt to this economic climate?
The VIX should be much higher, but it is masked by big players. So, FUD should replace FOMO. Listen to your intuition and gut instincts – people want and need to connect more than ever and have group experiences, and touch things, and feel they have control over what helps them create meaning and joy from within. Too many systems are only focused on solving their own problem: solve “their problem” meaning the yearnings of Gamers, and mothers, students, stressed parents, and teens. Deliver that to them, and you will thrive. Be brave, be true to yourself, and protect the innocent and young.
Please name a few technologies which have the greatest impact on your business.
Top of the list is Blockchain DLT. Through TRON, THOR, and BitFury their DLT services can protect against piracy, IP Theft, and fake advertising costs. Cryptocurrencies will bring me massive numbers of NFT’s and Tokens for Games. Crypto-Integrity-Tao presents the only system delivering the “Spirit and Scale” Blockchain seeks. But the real engaging experience will be from a new generation of apps interacting with Internet of Things (IoT) to deliver virtual reality (VR) and X Reality (XR). The proprietary analysis we have, proves a way to put it all “through the human sieve first” which is how Google became Google.
What books do you have on your nightstand?
The Janus Point is my latest book – an incredible re-imagining of our concept of Time that has parts related to creating art. Previously read are Homo Deux, The Three Body Problem, Tools of Titan, Discrimination and Disparities, a tech interpretation of The Art of War, and a multi-level interpretation on the Ren of Confucianism from several stories.
