The Early Years
After graduating from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in 1979 with a B.A. in direction and production of film and television, Shelly Palmer’s first full-time job was as a staff composer and producer for Don Elliot Productions.
By 1982, Palmer had raised enough money to build a digital recording studio, one of the first in the world. He opened Shelton Leigh Palmer & Co., which had principle offices and studios located on East 57th Street in New York City. His company primarily serviced the top 25 AAAA advertising agencies. Palmer also started a small electronic mail and BBS company called Musicom to enable touring musicians, tour operators and concert promoters to communicate using portable computers and modems over telephone lines.
Shelton Leigh Palmer & Co. (soon to become known as SLP&Co.) quickly became busy, composing music for companies like Burger King, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, AT&T and Meow Mix, among others. By 1986, the company built Creative Audio Recording Services, the world’s first commercial tapeless digital audio studios in Midtown Manhattan. That year SLP&Co. started creating and producing music videos and television commercials as well.
In the late 1980s, SLP&Co. branched out again, this time to full service advertising. Palmer became creative director and agency of record for Seagram’s Soft Drinks, No Excuses Jeans and Candie’s Shoes, among others.
SLP&Co. soon expanded to become SLP Productions, Inc. In order to handle the ever-growing production work, the company was divided into six operating divisions: Full Service Advertising, Film/Television Production, Music Production, Radio Production, Broadcast Services and Palmer Intermedia, an Internet division. The company operated complete, in-house, digital audio, video and graphic arts production that serviced the advertising, television, radio and film industries worldwide.
Palmer Advanced Media
In the early part of 2001, SLP Productions closed their studios in New York City and Los Angeles in order to concentrate on an evolving business model in advertising, production and technology consulting. The company thereafter restructured, with a new-found primary focus on television production and advertising.
Partnership with Landmark Ventures
