August 15, 2011 - Fullerton, CA - After
the inaugural shoot on Wednesday night in a packed studio of guests,
cast members, sponsors and crew, "The Moto Show with Jim Holley" went
into it's "hyper" post-production phase to get the show uploaded to
YouTube for the weekend. While there were a few technical (and creative)
delays, the show was live by around 12:00pm PST on Saturday, August 13
and the positive reviews began streaming in.
Laurette, the guests and our entire crew did a fantastic job getting
this new project off the ground," said Todd Huffman, series creator and
Executive Producer at Pipeline Digital Media. "The end results seem to
show it based on responses from viewers. We all learned a lot and it
will only get better."
Based on initial PR, and the flurry of
industry buzz on Facebook and enthusiast forums, views of TMS began
generating Saturday afternoon on YouTube. By Sunday evening, viewership
had crossed the pond to Europe, and also spread to Australia, Brazil and
South Africa. In only its first weekend, views are rapidly approaching
3000, which is encouraging considering the word will only continue to
spread over the next few weeks.
first episode is 36 minutes long and included four sponsored breaks
that featured commercials from JT Racing, Matrix Concepts, Husqvarna
Motorcycles, Butler Maps and Cycle News. Because there is no prescribed
timeslot to fill (i.e., 30-minutes, 60-minutes, etc.) as needed by
typical broadcast and cable networks, TMS producers have some
flexibility in what their running time will be.
"For lots of
reasons, we don't want the show to run too long but it's great to not
have to cut off a guest or edit down too much to fit a specific
run-time," said Todd Huffman. "The content is key to this show and we
don't want to stifle it."
week's guests include Monster Energy Pro Circuit and America's newest
Motocross of Nations Team Member, Blake Baggett, KTM's 7X ISDE Top
American Kurt Caselli and 2011 X-Games Gold Medalist Nate Adams plus
others to be announced.
