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.
Justin Timberlake at Bennett Media Studio for SNL Skit!
We had a shoot for Saturday Night Live with Justin Timberlake here at Bennett Media Studio. It was filmed all day Friday, and went quickly on air the next (Saturday) night. So you get a sense that this is quick turnaround time, one day to be precise.
The shoot lasted for a good 12 hours, had lots of preparation, and a fairly large crew of people. It was a closed set, so the work went quickly. The episode was called: “Romantic Comedy”. You can see it here.
PandoMonthly at Bennett Media Studio: A Fireside Chat with Ben Lerer
Thursday, August 16, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT), New York, NY
On August 16, PandoMonthly, a division of PandoDaily - a newly launched web broadcaster hat offers technology news, analysis, and commentary, with a focus on Silicon Valley and startup companies is coming to Bennett Media Studio to have their third monthly conference event in New York City. Entrepreneur and investor Ben Lerer will be the main guest speaker of the night.
Lerer is the co-founder and CEO of Thrillist -- the modern lifestyle brand for hip, urban guys everywhere. I always thought of Thrillist as DailyCandy for dudes, but it has continued to evolve well beyond the basic email newsletter. It now includes street wear flash-sale site JackThreads and the Groupon-like Thrillist Rewards.
Lerer is also a partner in Lerer Ventures, a firm that is aiming to do for startups on the East Coast, what SV Angel has done on the West Coast (read: Invest in most everything promising). Indeed, the two firms have a co-investing agreement to cross-pollinate Lerer Ventures' Huffington Post-soaked media expertise with SV Angel's Ron Conway-soaked Silicon Valley dominance. Given that Thrillist grew with very little venture capital, I'll be curious to hear Lerer's advice for startups when it comes to raising cash.
Lerer Ventures' portfolio includes BirchBox, Chartbeat, greplin, Pair, Romotive, RebelMouse, and plenty of other companies we're watching closely. It also includes PandoDaily.
Bennett Media Studio was the stage for a private Vanessa Carlton concert. It was also a podcast presented in 5.1 surround sound!
JAWBONE presented the CULTURE CATCH MUSIC SALON with MS. VANESSA CARLTON -- an evening of champagne, food, music and smart conversation.
This extraordinary night of music and talk affords a select group of invited VIPs an unprecedented opportunity to discuss in an informal and casual setting the impact of music and the cultural significance it may or may not have on our society. We're looking for the integrity of the musician and their symbiotic relationship with our culture.
