The Future is Now: The Future of Media

As a renowned film producer and President of Scholastic Media, Deborah Forte is spearheading efforts to bring modern technology to the rapidly changing field of educational entertainment. Earlier this year, Deborah and her team at Scholastic Media announced a partnership with Intel to deliver collaborative gaming experiences on Intel-based All-in-One PCs for Scholastic’s timeless properties Clifford the Big Red Dog and I SPY. Using Intel’s immersive RealSense technology to create high quality children’s media, Deborah hopes to bring children back to reading and introduce them to the future of interactive education.

Currently, Deborah and her team are breathing new life into classic stories such as Goosebumps and The Magic School Bus. Previously available only on TV and CD-ROM, Deborah is utilizing modern animation techniques and 3D technology to reboot The Magic School Bus series, which will soon be available on a wide variety of platforms. With advances in technology, Deborah and Scholastic are bringing these beloved stories to life for a new generation of readers and viewers.

We recently visited Deborah at Scholastic’s New York headquarters to understand her creative process and see how she is using technology to redefine the future of media. While touring her office and learning about her current projects, she offers us the very first glimpse at the concept art and early creative direction for the 3D The Magic School Bus TV series. Watch to see how Deborah and Scholastic Media are using pioneering Intel technology to fuse the worlds of education and entertainment.

The Future is Now is a 10-part video series that explores people and companies using Intel-powered technology to reinvent the future.
