The first-of-its-kind production studio in Orange County will feature a tech review set, a kitchen set, a beauty/lifestyle set, a talk show set, and a green screen set to serve creators across all genres and serve as a major destination for innovative video content creation. Mark Thimmig, Founder and Executive Producer of Mindstream Studio noted "Video receives exponentially greater views and likes on social media - from 10 to 1,000+ times more engagement than static posts, especially if an influencer is involved. Advertisers are looking to these influencers to tap into more powerful direct-response networks." The new studio build-out supports Mindstream's growing network of creator collaborations, brand promotions and original productions. "Look...TV changed our lives, heck...it changed the world. What's more exciting today is what short form video is doing for brands - it's just the best bang for your buck," stated Thimmig. "...These days you don't see people looking forward to the next episode of their favorite TV show (Netflix killed that), you see them waiting for their favorite YouTuber to release their next vlog," said Lee Decker, Creative Director at Mindstream Studio. Mindstream Studio also hosts and produces its own shows, Crowdfunding Voice and The Crowd Gadget Show, which have garnered over 100,000 YouTube views in the past month alone. Mindstream Studio is situated across from Orange County's John Wayne Airport in the heart of Irvine's tech hub at 18004 Sky Park Circle, Suite 150. The new space is expected to be operating at full production capacity by March 2017. Please see attached photo of design inspiration for Mindstream Studio set design and buildout.
