(April 2012, Burbank, CA) — Loyal Studios in Burbank has become a favorite for artists looking to produce high- definition greenscreen music videos.   The two stages in Burbank and Santa Monica have a history of hosting great talents from Snoop Dogg, to Jason Bonham, to Ray J and Bret Michaels, as well as producing videos for  Nicole Sherzinger, LMFAO, Odd Future and NeverShoutNever.

Hellyeah,” the formidable super-group is the latest to join the ranks on their way to their Asian tour to shoot a high concept video for their new album.  The group idea came about during the Tattoo the World tour in 2000 between Tom Maxwell from “Nothingface” and Chad Grey from the metal band “Mudyvane.”  Eventually, they convinced Vinny Paul from  Pantera” and “Damageplan” to take over the Drummer position from Nothingface’s Tommy Sickles.  Their first album self-entitled “Hellyeah” dropped on April 10th, 2007 through Epic Records, and quickly landed their single “Hellyeah” to the top 5 of American rock stations.

“Hellyeah rocked our studios hard,” says Producer and CEO of Loyal Studios, Bob Bekian.  “With our 2000 watt amplified playback system, the parking lot was literally shaking!”. “We shot this project with a series of cameras including the Canon 5D  with Zeiss prime lenses combined with the new RED digital Scarlett,” Bekian added.

Loyal studios is a favorite for music video productions  because of the high level of technical equipment and crew available to produce videos with the latest visual effects (“VFX”) and style.  The studio quickly gained a reputation for being a place that has the best cameras, crews and technical support as well as a place where artists feel comfortable and free to express themselves. The new addition of a complete  post production and editing studio inside the shooting location combined with their 75 HD camera systems has put Loyal Studios into a unique position to be able to offer a one-stop shop for Producers.

“Hellyeah’s” new album called “Band of Brothers” is set to release in stores across the U.S  June 5th, 2012.   The band remains in full creative swing, and is currently touring with Anthrax .

REALHD.TVis an entertainment site which brings together trends, stories, trailers and

behind the scenes content from Movies, Television, Commercials, and Music Videos,” Bekian says.  “We are excited to bring our visitors a fresh view into the entertainment world and provide advertisers with a high traffic venue.”

A unique feature about the site is the design that does not “pre-roll” advertising on the video screen, nor does it obstruct the content with a lower third ad.  Rather, the site feels as if you are watching a TV screen with clean advertising neatly organized in the player and control panel.  “We felt that the pre-roll and lower third traditional web-ad strategies can be obstructive and a turn-off to viewers, so we have designed the site to be more viewer friendly.”  Keeping the website clean and functional are very important to the feel of the site.

Ray J and Bekian started working together in Bekian’s Loyal Studios for “For The Love of Ray J” and “Family Business” produced by the Endemol Company 51MINDS. Their relationship grew as they collaborated on other projects together, such as music videos and behind the scenes content. “I’ve always admired Ray for his Talent, but he has a serious business side that I respect as well,” Bekian adds. Ray J and Bekian plan on doing multiple projects including a pilot and talk show hosted by Ray J. as well as cutting edge branded content.
