One of our new productions is called Open Flame. Dave Cathey calls it “open mic night” for local chefs. To kick off the event, and there are six total planned at American Propane,
Cathey invited Ryan Parrott from Iguana Grill and Luke Fry from Good Egg Dining Group to step up to the mic/grill. I think Mark Ridener from Good Egg’s Cheever’s Cafe originally was to man the AGE grill but had a scheduling conflict. Enter Chef Fry, who leads the Republic Gastropub kitchen efforts.
David Jones and I shot the event last Thursday. No shortage of smoke in the awesome cabana at American Propane. Whether we violated any burn ban ordinances, I don’t know, but the crowd of around 50 people enjoyed the fine grilling put on by these three.
Some things are just understood.
Great event. Took a week for my gear to air out. Clothes needed a couple rounds in the washing machine.
As per our usual, Jones and I shot with two Canon 7D cameras, matching the audio with a Zoom H4N. Jones went hand held with his shooting, using the camera strap as a third point of contact. I stayed with the tripod.
And below is an outtake that didn’t make the final product. Dave Cathey and Luke Fry are suspiciously behind Ryan Parrott, trying to light the grill. Judging by the ensuing fireball, they figured it out.
