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.
May 14th, we had another TV commercial shooting for a straight 14 hours at Bennett Media studio. It was for VMware, Microsoft's biggest competitors, a software company that provides cloud and vitualization software and services. It was founded Palo Alto, CA. The production company StarDust is also a California based visual supply company. We had great fun with all the people bringing Cali breeze.
Hand it to the folks at Golin Harris and Unilever...They held an elegant VIP press and Branding conference at Bennett Media Studio. It was packed with good food, conversations, clever presentations and seemingly a lot of fun.
It was the main stage for announcing the joint deal with Ne-Yo and Cher Lloyd for their song writing talents embracing the inspirational ideas for the Fruttare Brand...kinda clever actually.
The main area was used in the residential part of the Building, providing a home-like feel to the event. Click HERE to review the article on ArtistDirect.
Last Wednesday on Sept 19th 2012, PandoDaily, the new exclusive media aggregator in Silicon Valley had their second panel event at Bennett Media Studio. The audience had a nice and intelligent talk with Jonah Peretti, the founder of BuzzFeed and Huffington Post, centering a topic on what it means for content to go viral, his belief that human curation is more important than SEO in the age of the social Web, and why he believes that BuzzFeed can support both investigative journalism and light-hearted slideshows with the same enthusiasm.

PandoDaily monthly event PandoMonthly New York is coming back this week at Bennett Media Studio.
We are thrilled to have them back again and have a nice chat with Jonah Peretti, co-founder of The Huffington Post and BuzzFeed.
One of the New York Web ecosystem's big advantages is the talent and smarts from its old media roots as applied to decisively new media businesses. Peretti may define where new media is going more than anywhere else right now. That includes the good -- an almost unbelievable ability to grab the world by the lapels and make it laugh and cry but mostly click. And the bad -- a reliance on kittens, fluff, and SEO link bait have been snobby old-media gripes of both The Huffington Post and BuzzFeed.
Is Peretti the future of journalism? And if so, is that a good thing or a bad thing? I expect this to be the central point of our discussion next week, and will say a lot about where media -- one of those lifeblood businesses of New York -- is headed.
Please note that this event is a charity fund raising event to help bring fresh water to Rwanda. Thanks for your support!
