A who’s who of YouTube celebrities lined up for New Form Digital’s launch project Oscar’s Hotel, from the infinitely creative mind of PJ Liguori. This six-part original series transports its audience to a whimsical, fantastical universe. As the characters travel through the hotel, worlds upon worlds open up leaving nary a quiet night. Taking on the challenge of making PJ’s characters come to life, the venerable Jim Henson Company dove in head-first, creating unique puppets and costumes. Shot on the Red Dragon, the show has a fluidity and intimacy that captures the viewer and draws them in as part of the experience. The EasyRig allowed for the flexibility and freedom to perform unconventional camera movements and a unique floating esthetic. Shot over 12 days on location at Castle Green in Los Angeles, CA as well as on a sound stage, Oscar’s Hotel stars Chris Kendall with an ensemble guest cast featuring Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart, PewDiePie, Patrick Stewart, Alfred Molina, Elliott Gould and too many to mention! Check out the teaser here and mark your calendars for September 15th for the release of the entire series on Vimeo.
