    W!ZARD Studios Launches

    W!ZARD Studios was officially launched on 3rd of October 2014 and has already seen extremely positive results, pointing in the direction of a successful future.

    Originally announced was a biweekly podcast series from Honey Ross (online blogger) launching on Christmas Day 2014 and a client-based podcast from popular online music blog 'The Last Mixed Tape' for early 2015.

    The podcast series from Honey Ross has, since, been pushed back to a date still to be confirmed. However, The Last Mixed Tape Podcast will still launch on 17th January 2015 for its own bi-weekly series.

    The bi-weekly podcast series 'Roman & Adam' (originally produced by W!ZARD Radio Station) has since signed a partnership with W!ZARD Studios due to it's great success in Week 1, achieving over 3,000 downloads in 7 days. The new deal with W!ZARD Studios will ensure it's heightened success and greater distribution packages.

    A further three podcast series have been confirmed to be released under W!ZARD Studios - all for release in the first and second quarters of 2015.

    One of the three podcast series is set to be a music-based production in conjunction with a charting recording artist, with another set to be a remake of a popular 2010/2011 W!ZARD Radio Station radio show. Commenting on the remake, Executive Producer James Gilmore said, "In W!ZARD Radio Station's early days we produced a wide array of unique and, potentially, influential formats - however, due to lack of experience and low budgets, these were often poorly produced. It is extremely exciting to be able to reinvent one of our older formats with new talent, a new production team and greater backing and see it be as successful as originally anticipated".

    The arrival of W!ZARD Studios into the marketplace has been extremely well-received, with backing from the likes of Universal Music and The Walt Disney Company.

    It is predicted that by December 2015, there will be at least 5 active W!ZARD Studios projects operating - including at least one major project opening W!ZARD Studios to the film market.
