Shooting on stage 2 at the studio today is Oh Sit! A musical-chairs style gameshow with an extreme edge, utilizing elaborate obstacles and physical challenges for its participants. Created by Richard Joel, Deena Dill, and also Phil Gurin (who created ABC’s Shark Tank and The Singing bee) this production has a tangible energy on the lot. After a successful first season beginning in August of 2012, Oh Sit! is underway filming its new installment of episodes. Both Jessi Cruickshank and Jamie Kennedy are on the set today filming their hosting segments. A smooth running crew and it’s hilarious talent make Oh Sit! a perfect match for Glendale Studios.
Tata Simonyan, the European superstar named Moscow’s “King of Pop” in 2008, along with second generation pop star Kristina Orbakaite, are shooting what will no doubt be yet another top european hit on stage one at the studio today. Simonyan, already mega-famous in Armenia and Russia, and Russian-pedigree pop-sensation Orbakaite, are in Glendale to shoot what will likely be an internet released video also released on the european and asian circuits. Utilizing top of the line LED backdrops, RED EPIC cameras, digitized motorcycle chase scenes, and elaborate set design. The video documents two parallel story-lines that intersect at an Eastern wedding celebration. With Russian dancers, fog machines, and motorcycles on a digital LED stage, this shoot had an exotic and unique ambiance and a well-oiled crew!
