this project was the latest collaboration between Eric Wolfinger and me, spanning well over six months, using every type of camera we had access to. We had to improvise our shoot around the unpredictable calendar of a small winery during the harvest and production of their highly sought-after pinot. We captured every facet of the process, from as far as 10,000 feet in the air all the way up to macro shots of the droplets hitting the palette, figuring out how to edit it all together as we went along. Trying to set up elaborate moves and beautiful lights around hundreds of tons of grapes, forklifts, trucks, and workers was not very easy, but the winery gave us their total trust and our crew was as nimble as any crew I'd been with. In the end, three of my favorite DPs all had a hand in bringing this baby home, as well as composer Anton Patzner, sound designer Jeremiah Moore, colorist Ayumi Ashley, and editor Matt Notaro. We began the project humbly, not knowing what we would be able to get or how they would fit together, and I'm more than happy to finally share it in all its brisk and proud glory with you.
