We’re extremely proud to announce that this month we taped the Pilot Episode of our new television show “Rough Draft with Reza Aslan“! Our first guest was Damon Lindelof (Creator of Lost and The Leftovers) with musical guests Composer Antonio Sanchez (Birdman)and super Producer Daniel Lanois (Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Peter Gabriel). LAist described this brand new Speaker Series as “part Salon, part Speakeasy, where Aslan talks to various screenwriters, novelists and journalists about what inspires their work and craft”. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting new venture that we are producing under our creative content production company called 1215 Creative!

Earlier this week, AJA took over Mack Sennett Studios to debut their newest CION Camera! This exceptionally state of the art device features an ergonomic design and is capable of shooting at 4K/UltraHD and 2K/HD resolutions. Over the course of two days, AJA welcomed hundreds of guests into our studio to showcase CION’s features and functionality. Stage 1 was converted into a mock set where guests could give the CION a hands on try, and Stage 2 was set up for speaker demonstrations. We are excited about this new product and can’t wait for a client to bring it on set for a future production at our studio!
