EVENT: AJA CAMERA LAUNCH

 

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!

VIDEO SHOOT: BOOK OF LIFE

Earlier this month, Royal Interactive Studios brought in an 8-piece mariachi band for the BOOK OF LIFE digital campaign,#MARIACHIMYTWEET. The band selected songs from tweets sent into the Book of Life Movie Twitter account and “mariachi-fied” them, filmed it, and sent back out to into all social media channels. Cast members like Ice Cube and Channing Tatum tweeted in funny statements like “Lets Do This” and fans sent in hilarious requests like “Jake Gyllenhall Why Won’t You Love Me?”  It was a ground breaking campaign as ROYAL Studios and FOX DIGITAL were turning around mariachi-fied uploads in relative real time. Mack Sennett Studios served as the perfect home for this challenging digital marketing stunt. Ole’!

PRESS: COMPLEX MAG

We love the mention in Complex Mag’s Expendables 3 cast interview at our studio! They describe the Stage 1 Green Room as “the lounge, a room that looks like it was imported from an English hamlet, with exposed beams, a high ceiling, sliding wooden doors and a 20 ft leather couch” sound familiar?
