Services Provided

IMDb contracted Broadcast Management Group to help produce a 90-minute live web show during San Diego Comic-Con. IMDb LIVE @ SDCC – hosted by Kevin Smith – featured interviews with actors and celebrities discussing all things Comic-Con. For the third consecutive year, IMDb rented out a yacht at the San Diego Pier and turned it into the #IMDboat, which was used as a location for shooting multi-camera interviews for several days leading up to the live show. On their final day of production, IMDb wanted to produce a live show from their location, and contacted BMG to provide all of the on-site technical setup and logistics to turn their interview set into a live production environment. BMG provided full production services for the live show, including procurement and technical management of all production equipment, booking and managing all production labor, and on-site encoding and captioning. The program was streamed live to 3 platforms: Twitch, Twitter and Daily Motion.
