It was announced this week that a Belfast digital media company plans to take on more than 20 new staff after securing a partnership with a US content creation studio headed by a Hollywood director.
The two companies – both of which appeared at this year’s Digital DNA event in Belfast - have together launched a new multi-channel network which will see the creation of 50 new digital media channels covering every market vertical from sport and fitness to innovation, environment, adventure, economics and education, creative, fashion and technology and many more.
The new roles will be focused in the fields of creative, technical and production. Navada Studios now has UK offices in Belfast, London, and Newcastle Upon Tyne and are expanding into Sweden and both East and West coasts of the USA.
Navada Studios said the new transatlantic partnership with LA-based Rebel of America – founded by Rock Jacobs - will disrupt the entertainment industry with new digital formats, multi-channel approaches and immersive and interactive content experiences for digital-savvy audiences.
Speaking this week, Founder of Navada Studios, Matthew Scott said, "This is a really exciting deal for us. Rebel of America is the most respected content creation studio in the world and their involvement is testament to the respect we’ve built up in the industry. We’ve been in development mode for a few years and have worked hard to build up multi-million audiences for our clients. The next few years are going to see the business grow, not just in Northern Ireland but around the world."
