After asking celebrity guests to say I Love Movies, Fandango is now inviting other collaborators to its Movie3Some. The ticketing company’s Movieclips brand has taken up residency at YouTube Space LA, where it is shooting a weekly series dedicated to current films.
Movie3Some will be hosted by Kristian Harloff and Tiffany Smith, both of whom have previously made videos on the Schmoes Know channel. Each week, Harloff and Smith will complete their threesome by inviting a guest to join their discussion of recent movies. Guests will range from people within the film industry (such as director Guillermo del Toro, who is no stranger to YouTube Space LA) to those outside it (such as Dwight Howard, who also appeared on Fandango’s previous series, I Love Movies).
The partnership between Fandango and YouTube Space LA is a logical one. Fandango often creates videos that relate to current movies, and the YouTube Spaces have often housed sets on which content creators can film videos related to those same movies.
“Fandango Movieclips has a long history of proven success on YouTube, and we are very proud to have been selected for YouTube Space LA’s highly-regarded residency program,” said Fandango Chief Creative Officer, Sandro Corsaro. “We are excited to have the opportunity to explore new ideas that celebrate the movies and moviegoing on YouTube at their world class facilities.”
The first episode of Movie3Some, which covers recent releases like Minions and Ant-Man, can be found on the Movieclips Originals YouTube channel. Dan Perrault, who is himself the host of a Fandango series, serves as the first guest star.
