Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 09, 2014
JoBlo.com, one of the Internet’s original movie fansites, established in 1998, has now expanded its corporate umbrella to include movie-themed photo shoots featuring up-and-coming actresses and models dressed up like characters from popular, mostly “fanboy”, movies, under their MovieHotties brand.
The site’s inaugural pictorial features model/actress Sandra Vergara dressed up like a character straight out of the “300” movie franchise. Sofia Vergara’s younger cousin was elated when approached by JoBlo.com’s MovieHotties brand and had a great time during their first shoot: “I’ve always been a fan of both JoBlo.com and MovieHotties, and was very happy with the overall shoot and interaction with the boys. They may come off as fanboys on their site, but believe me when I tell you that these guys are professionals. I had a blast!”
Berge Garabedian, CEO and founder of JoBlo.com, had been dreaming about this possibility for years as the popularity of their MovieHotties brand continued to grow: “We started interviewing young starlets on the site in January 2013, getting to know them a little more personally, and it was a great success. Within months, we had reps contacting us for their clients to appear on our site, so the transition to actual photo shoots was very organic.”
Garabedian adds: “For each photo shoot, we will invite the model to choose a favorite character of hers from a fanboy flick, and we will do our best to recreate that film’s appeal via our photos. Each shoot will also include a behind-the-scenes video of the actual production a few weeks after the pictorial is published to the site, as well as an interview. In the end, our site has always been about the fans and we are hoping that these photo shoots become as popular as our photo galleries, celebrity interviews and our annual Top 25 Hotties of the Year list.”
The “300”-themed photo spread featuring Sandra Vergara can be found on their site today, while the behind-the-scenes video will appear on their YouTube channel in a few weeks’ time.
JoBlo.com (aka The JoBlo Movie Network) was founded in 1998 and has since become one of the most popular destinations on the Internet for movie fans from around the world. The site welcomes over 5,000,000 visitors every month, and their YouTube channel recently surpassed the 650,000,000 views mark. The website features daily movie news updates, the latest in trailers, celebrity interviews, set visit reports, movie reviews, release dates, as well as a horror sub-section called Arrow in the Head and a celebrity-based section called MovieHotties.
