WarnerMedia's Artist Studio Where Content Innovation Happens Slate Includes 2021 Oscar-Nominated Short White Eye and 40 Additional Projects

LOS ANGELES - WarnerMedia OneFifty, WarnerMedia's content innovation hub, today announced the launch of its redesigned platform, content acquisitions and project slate. Inspired by the nearly 100-year tradition of innovation at the company, WarnerMedia OneFifty endeavors to revolutionize the content development process, while serving as a natural complement to the industry-leading work of WarnerMedia and its premier entertainment brands.

WarnerMedia OneFifty invests in bold, poignant, and innovative storytelling, as well as artists with unique voices and powerful perspectives. The hub leverages the company's arts and culture portfolio, social impact partners, labs and incubation programs as natural connection points. It also seeks to uncover ideas and stories using new access points for creativity. Thecreators' boundaries are challenged in all forms of media, including features, series, digital, animation, documentary, interactive, VR/AR, music, transmedia, experimental, immersive, and beyond.

WarnerMedia OneFifty discovers nontraditional content sourcesby leaning into the surrounding cultural landscape and collaborating with a collection of curated storytellers to shape projects highlighting what's next in creativity and innovation, said Axel Caballero, Head of WarnerMedia OneFifty. Stories are developed differently by taking smart, daring creative risks and making small, astute investments in original projects with the goal of elevating great content within all of WarnerMedia and across the industry.

Some key features of the relaunched platform and website include an audio account of the 150 Origin Story, an inspirational Culture section, a list of Co-Conspirators who serve as key sources for content and artists, and the Content section where projects, stories, and artists are showcased.
