In this episode of “The Ben & Marc Show”, a16z’s co-founders Ben Horowitz and Marc Andreessen take on the most hot-button issue in Hollywood: artificial intelligence.  Over the past few months, the topic of AI technology has pushed the entire industry into unknown territory.  Screenwriters fear they’ll no longer be needed, while actors believe they’ll be replaced altogether. But is it possible AI can actually level the playing field and create new opportunities for all artists? In this two-part conversation based on YOUR questions from X (formerly Twitter), Marc and Ben examine the evolving business models of the film and television industries,  as well as explore how writers, directors and actors can soon use AI technology to unleash their creative potential in ways they never thought possible.  In fact, AI’s future in Hollywood may not be as dystopian as some of our favorite films have led us to believe. We hope you enjoy this episode! * Episode Note: This conversation was recorded in two parts.  Part one took place before the WGA and AMPTP reached an agreement.

In this episode of “The Ben & Marc Show”, a16z’s co-founders Ben Horowitz and Marc Andreessen take on the biggest  and most important film of the year – Christopher Nolan’s latest blockbuster “Oppenheimer”. The film – based on the 2005 biography “American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer'' by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin – chronicles the life of the American theoretical physicist, whose direction of the top secret Manhattan Project forever changed the course of world history. In this one-on-one conversation based on YOUR questions from Twitter, Marc and Ben examine the historical accuracies (and inaccuracies) of Nolan’s epic work, explore in-depth the life of the enigmatic physicist himself, and tackle – from all angles – the social and philosophical aspects of communism, a theme that weighs heavily in the film, as Oppenheimer’s association with party members led to his political downfall. We hope you enjoy this episode! Watch the video version here:  https://youtu.be/AwOFcxENsVk?si=vUF9ZO5Fcj9W0O49 Resources:Marc on X: https://twitter.com/pmarcaMarc’s Substack: https://pmarca.substack.com/ Ben on X: https://twitter.com/bhorowitz NY Times: "The Problem With Everything-Bagel Liberalism" by Ezra Klein: ’https://www.nytimes.com/2023/04/02/op... Books mentioned on this podcast (and others you’ll want to check out):– “Red Decade” by Eugene Lyons https://amzn.to/3OEQMbZ– “When Reason Goes on Holiday: Philosophers in Politics” by Neven Sesardic https://amzn.to/455zYRv– "Witness" by Whittaker Chambers https://amzn.to/3OEu0RC– ”The Great Leap Forward" by Alexander J.
