LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 20, 2013) - Los Angeles, CA-based entertainment company WINDOWSEAT has teamed up with leading digital media company Gravity Collection, Inc. to develop and produce an original water sports series, financed and distributed through Gravity Collection and its extensive worldwide distribution outlets. The series, titled, "Drop Zone," will cast an energetic eye on thrilling outdoor ventures, peering above and below the water's surface with some of the world's leading talent -- from big wave surfers, underwater hunters, to the latest water sports emerging athletes. The series, developed by WINDOWSEAT'S Bill Kiely and Jim Reach and Gravity Collection's Harry S. Vested, Jr., will be directed by Kiely and will travel around the world to document some of the industry's top athletes fearlessly immersed in their exotic and intense environments.
Established in 2005, Gravity Collection has amassed an outstanding library of content in the extreme sport genre and is one of the largest content providers of action sports content. This strategic partnership with WINDOWSEAT will provide Gravity Collection a pipeline of Original Series that will bolster the Gravity Collection brand and position in the market place.
WINDOWSEAT's recent multi-platform media production for the 30th Annual Vans Triple Crown of Surfing featured live streaming content, short branded online content as well as a broadcast program and was executed throughout the surf series' 40 days of competition. This, along with a wide range of work for top active lifestyle brands such as Nike, Converse, Camelbak and Vans, exemplifies their expertise in not only capturing the gripping footage, but also crafting a compelling storyline intertwined in the action.
Notes Vested, "WINDOWSEAT has immediate access to some of the best athletes in this action-packed water sports realm. With the type of docu-style content Kiely directs, it was no question they would be a great partner this type of Original Programming for Gravity Collection." Adds Reach, "Authentic story telling is what we do best, and the opportunity to develop a television series which will be distributed over traditional platforms in domestic and international market place is great exposure for the athletes and brands that support us."
