And they’re back! One of the most popular video series of 2008 was the Gourmet Grille at Buy For Less, hosted by local chefs and business owners Sean and Cathy Cummings.
I just posted the first video from the GG for 2009. We’re talking chili today. Cathy’s mom’s chili.
Todd Fraser and I shoot these segments about every six weeks or so at the Buy For Less on NW Expressway in OKC. 2-3 segments are taped. We spend about an hour to 90 minutes setting up, shooting and tearing down.
The food always looks great, smells great and, from what I’ve tried at home, tastes great too.
Dave Cathey is The Oklahoman’s new food editor, succeeding Sharon Dowell who worked as the newspaper’s main food reporter for decades.
Cathey is bringing a new approach and is launching a video series. I shot his intro in our Studio B last week. He dropped off a tape of his chili making prowess. I combined about 13 minutes of b-roll/kitchen action/complete with barking dogs in the background into a roughly five minute video, using fast motion in FCP at about 450 percent.
