WVUA-TV, the television station owned by the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, is prepping to debut a new set from Provost Studio and has offered up a preview in the form of a timelapse video of the installation.

The video, which is available on Provost’s Tumblr blog, shows the installation progress from a variety of angles.

Chicago 'RedEye' studio goes live


The Chicago Tribune‘s free daily publication RedEye (not to be confused with the Fox News show by the same name) has debuted a new home for its online video segments.

The new set, from Provost Studio, includes a edgy, industrial feel with a faux brick and plaster wall, windows and a standing anchor desk.

The set is dominated by skillful lighting design, including splashes of color on the wall to bring out its texture. Other scenic elements include a stenciled outline of the Chicago street grid and small, square photos of city landmarks as well as a prominent RedEye logo.

Small but flexible studio gains traction in St. Louis

Tucked into a suburb of St. Louis, First Rule Film & Broadcast has built a network-caliber studio that plays host to many types of broadcasts.

Located on the 16th and 17th floor of a high rise, First Rule has set a high standard. With sweeping views of downtown St. Louis, the company’s office commands a certain presence, a presence they also wanted in their studio design.

First Rule Film & Broadcast is the brainchild of Travis Brown, who owns parent company Pelopidas, an issues-based advocacy and lobbying firm that works with many campaigns across the state of Missouri. Brown makes many appearances on national networks, such as Fox News, and he and his partner envision the space as a multi-purpose studio for hire.

“Travis and I laid out a plan to build a ‘broadcast ready’ event space and a separate broadcast studio that would match up with any national cable show set,” said Rob Glessner, director of broadcast operations for First Rule. “Provost Studio and Peter Hyde Design had recently built a broadcast ready event space for the Chicago Bears and had done numerous studios for the major networks. They were perfect partners.”

The home of the Chicago Bears Network has been nominated for an Emmy Award by the Chicago/Midwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

The set debuted in fall of 2013 and was designed by Peter Provost of Provost Studio.


Chicago MundoFox affiliate launches news program

Last week, “Hoy Noticias MundoFox 13″ launched on WOCK-TV, Chicago’s MundoFox affiliate.

The show is a unique partnership between the Tribune-owned Hoy newspaper and the television station, owned by KM Communications.

The newscast has a selectively-curated list of stories, tailored to Chicago’s Spanish-speaking community.

Provost Studio designed the set for the newscast, which features a view of Chicago with a bright red color palette.

“MundoFox 13 is Chicago’s fastest-growing Hispanic TV station,” said Donald Bae, General Manager of WOCK-TV. “The next step in the evolution of our station is, not only to entertain, but also to educate and inform our viewers. The partnership with an established news organization like Hoy will allow us to deeply connect with our viewers and, at the same time, give our advertisers a unique opportunity within our two powerful brands.”


Bears open Halas Hall to business events

Ted Phillips always was struck whenever visitors walked through Halas Hall. The Bears president saw their eyes darting around and the look of fascination on their faces as they toured the team's headquarters and training facility in Lake Forest.

He realized he had an untapped commodity.

"It amazed me that they were so intrigued," Phillips said. "Usually, the team wasn't playing. There weren't any players around. They loved just being where the Bears practice. It got us to start thinking, how can we do more?"

Bears studio up for ‘Set of the Year’

Provost Studio helps Chicago Bears Network relaunch

As the 2013 NFL season kicked off, the Chicago Bears Network moved into a state-of-the-art broadcast studio at Halas Hall, the teams headquarters.

The 2,300 square foot studio was designed by Peter Provost of Provost Studio, a cross-disciplinary design firm that works on both television and commercial architectural projects.

Connected with modern technology and Chicago Bears heritage, the studio was designed to accommodate multiple shows that air on both network television and internet platforms. Shows broadcast from the studio include: “Bears Gameday Live,” “Bears Gamenight Live” and “Inside the Bears.”

The studio is split into two halves, like a football field, with a main anchor desk and an informal standup area on opposing ends. The two halves are tired together with a 48 foot-long backlit graphic wall that shows the Bears practice field. A LED header intersects the wall, creating a floating NFL yard line marker.


Bears open up new multimedia studio at Halas Hall

The Chicago Bears are one the NFL’s iconic franchises. When a franchise has been around for so long, it often tries to find ways to keep up with the times.

The Bears recently opened up a new multimedia studio at Halas Hall, recently profiled in USA Today. A majority of the 40,000-square-foot addition to Halas Hall features state-of-the-art TV and radio studios, network studio shows and deluxe new interview rooms for the team to use and a technical center. Also, there is an event space, allowing the team to bring in studio audiences for shows.

Team president Ted Phillips told USA Today that the facility is the perfect way to give the fans more access to the team.

"What we've found is that you can't give the fans enough, especially the inside access," Phillips said. "When we air programs about the draft or our mini camps, we get unbelievable traction from the fans. It made us think, 'How can we do more?'”


Bears’ state-of-the-art center something to behold

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- It is late Monday afternoon, and the shade starts to hover over the idle practice field. Halas Hall, the Chicago Bears headquarters, is relatively quiet the day after a tough and costly loss to the Washington Redskins, a game that saw the team lose quarterback Jay Cutler and linebacker Lance Briggs to injuries.

But in another part of the facility, activity is ramping up. Bright lights flash on, and men test four cameras positions in the shiny new broadcast studio. HostChris Boden and analyst Dan Jiggetts go over their notes for the last time in preparation for Bears Recap, which will air shortly on Comcast Sports Net Chicago.

Jiggetts, an offensive tackle for the Bears from 1976 to 1982, takes a long look at his lavish surroundings, which went live last week. He has memories of playing in relatively spartan digs during an era when owner George Halas, who died in 1983, kept a firm grip on his wallet

Almuerzo Creativo- Provost Studio

For our most recent Almuerzo Creativo, we shook things up a bit. As you may have noticed from previous posts, we typically watch and discuss a video that one of us has wanted to share with the group. Last week, however, we discussed something equally awesome, but different: Architectural design. Peter Provost, who we are lucky to have working alongside us in our new office, gave us an inside look at his design firm, Provost Studio, and some of his recent projects.

Peter is an internationally recognized architect and designer who has worked on projects ranging from museum installations to broadcast studios. He has a strong appreciation for experiential design and branded environments. Peter talked about how a successfully designed space has the ability to serve as so much more than its basic function. It has the ability to stir emotions, to inspire, to ignite, to refresh, to transform, and to make you feel something.

Chicago Bears launching new TV show Sept. 14

Making use of their soon-to-be-finished broadcast studio at Halas Hall, the Chicago Bears will debut a new weekly half-hour TV show this fall on Fox station WFLD-TV/Channel 32 and WPWR-TV/Channel 50.

"Inside the Bears," a feature-focused program that "will be more personality-driven than x's and o's," says Bears Vice President of Communications Scott Hagel, will be produced at the team's new 4,000-square-foot studio addition at the Lake Forest facility; it'll be hosted by former Bears defensive tackle Anthony Adams, with a female co-host still to be determined.
