Randy Jackson Launches Starwest Music & Video Production Studios
Former American Idol judge and producer Randy Jackson is launching Starwest Studios, an all-in-one production house, boasting spaces for both music and video production. Joining him as co-partners at Starwest are entrepreneur Richard G. Stewart, Jr. and TV producer/composer Sammy Oriti. The official launch will take place Wednesday in Burbank, California.
"Web-based independent production, dance and broadcasts areas [are growing] in the entertainment industry, so Randy Jackson and his partners wanted to create a production space that would be on the leading edge of demand and could meet their personal creative needs and those of their colleagues in the industry," the company said in a statement.
In celebration of the new endeavor, Jackson and his co-partners are hosting a grand opening event. The festivities will take place at Starwest Studios (2010 N. Hollywood Way, Burbank, California, 91505) on Wednesday, Sept. 27, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Known largely as an on-screen personality on American Idol and MTV's America's Best Dance Crew, as well as his work with Journey and Bruce Springsteen, Jackson has recently made moves as a manager after signing YouTube star Christian Collins late last year and joining a roster at Faction Talent Management Services.
