To help feed an operation that attracts around 54 million unique monthly visitors, CraveOnline has added a 4,000-square-foot green screen studio to its Ladera Heights headquarters. The new facility also features edit bays, dressing rooms and full live-streaming capabilities.
The Evolve Media men’s lifestyles publisher will be using the new studio in May to shoot – among other things – episodes of Clocked Out, TechKnow and The B-Movies Podcast. It’s also going to beam out pre- and post-boxing match analysis in conjunction with Sherdog and RingTV.
The B-Movies Podcast is one of two weekly audio streams co-hosted by CraveOnline film channel editor William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold. The lively pair also do something called The Trailer Hitch, which layers in fun MST3K-style VO on to the latest Hollywood coming attractions.
The new studio is also acoustically outfitted for musical performances, something the CO2 Artist Lounge series will immediately be taking advantage of. To support the expanded production activity, CraveOnline has enlisted a team of ten technicians, managers and writers.
