Looks like our former Mediabistro colleague Andrew Gauthier (TV Spy) has some capable new company at BuzzFeed with regards to cranking out memorable video material.
With BuzzFeed’s acquisition of Ze Frank Games, Frank will build a team of video producers in Los Angeles and establish a studio to create content native to the social web. The acquisition and hire are effective immediately.
“I’ve been a longtime fan of the way that BuzzFeed creates and curates great social content, so it’s a thrill to join them. There is a great opportunity to bring BuzzFeed’s philosophy to the wild west of online video and I’m excited to be putting together a talented team in LA to make that happen,” said Frank.
