Thanksgiving meal preparation video series for Open House, the official blog of Biltmore®

Roles: Director of Photography, Producer, Editor

Project Description

Watching an amazing chef prepare beautiful and delicious food is always exciting. And to film that process in a unique and engaging way to be shared in under two minutes was certainly a challenge. This series consisted of three videos highlighting various Thanksgiving (or anytime) meal courses that visually instruct the viewer to replicate the recipes.


“It’s a great opportunity to have creative control with the visuals and post production. Having experience in both fields, it allows me to have more flexibility with the finished product.”

The creative team wanted to showcase these how to videos in an overhead style to suit the vision of a number of food stylized videos you see online currently. By adding a distinctive visual effect that accelerates the video and then converting the frame rate, I was able to create a dreamy feel as the chef moves through the recipes. I had the privilege of working with Sommer Collier from A Spicy Perspective, food stylist extraordinaire.
