‘SNL’ Time-Lapse: Watch an Entire Episode Come Together in Under 3 Minutes
However many years you’ve followed ‘SNL,’ or even ‘30 Rock,’ fans don’t often get the chance to go behind the scenes of their favorite sketch comedy series to see how it all comes together on stage. Now we can, with a condensed time-lapse of the entire Anna Kendrick–Pharrell installment, from setup to curtain call in Studio 8H!
NBC has released an intriguing new video from this past Saturday’s ‘SNL’ installment, placing a time-lapse camera toward the back of the studio to show the entire process of a solitary episode from top to bottom. Unless you’ve actually been to an ‘SNL’ taping, you might not realize how small the actual audience on the lower level can be, or how sets end up put together and disassembled in mere minutes on multiple sides of the stage.
‘SNL’ will look to continue its streak with this Saturday’s return of two-time host and ‘Neighbors‘ star Seth Rogen, with musical guest Ed Sheeran, so check out the behind-the-scenes time-lapse above, and tell us what you think!
