In May 29th, Bennett Media Studio was working again with NBC Universal and Hoda Kotb for a Dateline Story on teenagers getting cosmetic surgery. We have two interviewees Donovan and Connor, they shared their personal stories of getting plastic surgeries with the help from the organization "Little Baby Face". They were interviewed by Hoda Kotb. The shooting took place on the first floor, which has a performance stage, and the catacombs. Click HERE to watch the video.
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.
August 19th-23th, our guest was from the women clothing brand Dressbarn, they were here for the whole week shooting their winter catalog. It feels like Christmas again! Not only they transform the living room on 4th floor to a fully decorated Christmas party, but also we spent good time together celebrating. It was one of the most relaxed work atmosphere that exists in Bennett Media Studio, they also got a lot of work done every day. Here are some photos for a early Christmas!
May. 17th, we had a really fun and special commercial shooting. Because it's for pet food! There were 4 dogs and 4 cats coming to the shooting. They are all stars! We all get along really well in the big house. The shooting mainly took place on the third and fourth floor of the residential area, where they captured the interaction between the talent with the cute dogs/cats, and also how they love the food. The production company Clarabelle Co. did a great job. Click "True Blue Test", "Better Ingredients" , "Mad" and "Molly" to watch the commercial.
May 14th, we had another TV commercial shooting for a straight 14 hours at Bennett Media studio.
