Picking up where we left off, a series of brainstorming sessions occurred while working out the details of the script and all of sudden we had a new idea for a better story (we are always looking for the best story). These meetings took place during March Madness, and at least one member of our team (me) had been watching a little bit of basketball (note: the phrase “a little” is meant to be read “hours a day”). So from this healthy obsession, sprang the idea of making our food stars into sportscasters. Recent cast changes had replaced Triple B Burger with Pub Burger (Triple B had a scheduling conflict) and Buffalo Chicken Salad with Buffalo Chicken Wings (the salad had a diva moment and backed out).
So, to make a long story short (TOO LATE!), we had new characters and a new story (Interested in storytelling? Funny, we are totally into storytelling. Seminar and blog posts coming soon on that topic). With the story set, and our new toys (a Canon 60D with some beautiful new lenses) we set out to make a funny story with delicious food. Using our home-made tray (See picture: don’t worry it wasn’t heavy or anything) we got the shots we wanted. After all the shots, we put into our magic cave (watch our Process video to get that joke) and out came a shiny new commercial. We will let you judge the story, but take my word on the food (my word: delicious. Go ahead, take it). Check out Carolina Ale House.
