iBallz offers students and young filmmakers an opportunity to share ideas and find common strengths from others on the Web site that will help projects to get completed with less hassle and more expertise than offered anywhere else.
Santa Monica (PRWEB) September 30, 2010
iBallz, LLC, a Santa Monica, California based entertainment web company, announced today the public beta launch of their premiere social media website (http://www.iBallz.com). The new web property is an online project management site that leverages the power of a robust social network to enable users to collaboratively create high-quality video content in a secure environment.
iBallz is the brainchild of founder and CEO Dean Crescenzi. Recognizing the need to change the monolithic and inefficient Hollywood studio development system, Dean partnered with co-founder and COO Ron De Blasio to create a new system for producing valuable content for film, TV and the web.
"The Hollywood community has been operating in the same traditional manner for over 90 years,” said Crescenzi. “Access to the studios, broadcast/cable networks and talent agencies is difficult if you’re in the “Biz” and virtually impossible for a talented content creator living in Middle America. Our platform was designed to provide everyone the opportunity to break into the business, to build a social networking community specifically for the entertainment and creative industry, to give them tools to manage their careers and to establish an on-line distribution system. No other website offers a complete range of exposure. At iBallz we are all about connections, creation and distribution.”
After shepherding the business through its infancy stages, iBallz joined forces with such innovative entertainment partners like Vin Di Bona Productions and Alliance Acquisitions, who both share the iBallz vision for a new, streamlined Hollywood.
“iBallz offers students and young filmmakers an opportunity to share ideas and find common strengths from others on the Web site that will help projects to get completed with less hassle and more expertise than offered anywhere else,” said Vin Di Bona, creator and producer of the long-running hit TV series America’s Funniest Home Videos on ABC. Di Bona recognized the inevitable shift in the industry to online production a few years ago and came onboard as a senior advisor to iBallz.
The iBallz mission is simple, yet ground-breaking: Streamline the entire video production process, encouraging users to generate quality video content that can be showcased on the iBallz site and then sold to traditional and emerging video destinations.
iBallz is an online destination that provides users with the tools to collaborate to create quality video content intended for film, TV and web distribution. iBallz, LLC is an Alliance Acquisitions, Inc. portfolio company headquartered in Santa Monica, California.
