This October, NBA Star Amar'e Stoudemire visited Bennett Media Studio and shot a funny behind-the-scene style promo video. It's for the upcoming film "BEYOND THE LIGHTS" that he produced. Let's see how much he was a hands-on producer.
Smuggler films was in Bennett Media studio, shot a new piece for Netflix, featuring the very funny Ricky Gervais. Click above to check out the video. Also, don't forget to check out the outtakes for more laugh.
His new show is called "Derek", and you should try to watch it...if you subscribe to Netflix, of course ( I do). The Shoot was quite a large production. The outdoor lighting for the main living room scene was handled by Cranes and huge HMI Lights. The shoot lasted 12 hours. The crew was over 100.
For the last 2 weeks, we have been hosting the popular Food Network cooking show with master chef Bobby Flay called "Brunch @ Bobby's". In its 3rd Season here at Bennett Media Studio, this show really shines in its focus on the art and craft of making and hosting a delicious Brunch, which is a favorite ritual shared throughout the world. From Brussels, to Beijing, to New York, the concept of a convivial weekend daytime gathering of friends and family around comfort food is a tradition shared by almost every culture and in every country.
Bobby does not disappoint us. I have been trying his new recipes, and spirited cocktails he invents for this daytime event of feasting and munching, chatting and sharing with friends.
Another episode of Saturday Night Live was filmed at the Studio and home of BMS. This short film, shot on a Friday, was aired on the Live Show the following evening at 11:30pm. The SNL Producers know the meaning of quick turnaround time: 24 hours from shooting, editing, and on-air.
Here at the studio, I will be hosting "Counterpoint AfterHours" - an evening of new writing curated by Counterpoint Theater Company. Counterpoint Theatre Company is an international collaborative of artists, committed to producing a global exchange of the most innovative new writing as well as bold re-imagined classics. We will feature new short works by some clever and talented writers from London and New York, and live music from our friends, The Vanguard. Watching these guys at a soundcheck session is a real treat..and they thrive in front of a live audience. Sticking with our season's theme of "What's Love Got to Do With It?", we're focusing on crossed wires, gullible lovers and guilty secrets, and asking our writers to respond to the provocative phrase, "I LOVE YOU...I THINK".'
The multi-award winning US/UK lineup includes Counterpoint's Resident Playwright, Bekah Brunstetter (NY Innovative Theatre Award), Lily Bevan (artistic director of the Osip Theatre), Joel Horwood (Cameron Mackintosh Award), Josh Koenigsberg (2010 Playwright in Residence, Urban Arts), Michael Lew (Heidman Award winner), and Morgan Lloyd Malcolm (Smiffie Award Winner).
