Ripple Entertainment, a company co-founded by former Fremantle Media execs Gayle Gilman and Jason Ziemianski, announced today that it is launching its digital network FXated with its first original series “Super Horse,” debuting today.
Focusing on visual effects-related content and creators, FXated will distribute its ad-supported content on YouTube, Facebook and its owned and operated site, www.fxated.com.
“Super Horse” is a scripted action-hero format developed by Joe Murayama, whose YouTube channel PixelStorm Films has 12K subscribers and 3M views. Ripple is also working with other visual effects talent including Fury Fingers, Mars Rising Films and Mike Diva to produce and distribute original series and one-off videos on YouTube and other social video platforms.
Gilman and Ziemianski launched Ripple Entertainment last fall in partnership with Red Arrow Entertainment to develop and operate online video networks.
“As the VOD world quickly evolves, we continue to see opportunity in building vertically focused media brands with high quality video programming “ said Ziemianski in a statement. “VFX-centric content is a powerful niche that touches a number of thriving categories like gaming, comics, action/adventure and comedy. As Ripple’s first network, we’re excited about FXated’s place in the market and we’re looking forward to launching our other networks in the coming weeks and months.”
