Esports and entertainment brand Evil Geniuses has announced plans to build a new full-service studio for its content creators. The studio will support the company’s growing roster of creative talent, which it calls its Creator Collective.
John Jung, EG’s vice president of operations and studio, will lead the new content studio. He told GamesBeat in an interview, “This is our first foray into building a production facility as well as all the talent we would need to build and shoot, edit, post-produce, inception to end. Additionally, we have incorporated the Creator Collective to create an entire community or creative individuals who will all be part of EG’s content plan in the future.
The company has already created its first set of content with the studio, specifically its EG Files docuseries and a video featuring CEO Nicole LaPointe Jameson. It plans to begin construction of the facility, located in Seattle, in the coming months. The goal is to have facilities where creators can create video content as well as live streaming and podcasting.
Evil Geniuses plans to expand its Creator Collective, led by Director of Talent Management Taylor Chou, this year. Jung told GamesBeat, “One of the purposes of this announcement is to let the creative community know that we are here and looking to grow our roster of creative talent.”
