Lake to Plate is the first in a series of videos following Ayden Kitchen & Bar behind the scenes as they search for local ingredients, visit local suppliers and prepare for the restaurant opening in November.

Prior to opening, we will be releasing a new video each week. Along with each video, I have created a 15 second trailer to be uploaded via their Instagram account, as well as a 30-second trailer to play on Facebook.

When shooting these videos, I wanted the style of shooting to reflect what was happening in the scene, shooting a majority of the video hand-held, using a Zacuto Z-Finder to give the camera movement, but keep it from being too shaky. Once the chefs begin preparing the meal, I incorporate a few different shots utilizing sliders and tripods, making specific shots more purposeful and focused, much like the steps they take in preparing the food.

I took a similar approach when creating the music for each video, using more acoustic based instruments, and aiming for a very organic sound.
