The idea for this film was given to me by my father. He was recently helping with the Alchemist's expansion and recognized the canning line as a compelling process to catch on camera. I saw the idea as a chance to tell the story of two intriguing people who began a business that slowly evolved into a mission to perfect one beer: Heady Topper.
This is my first short documentary. I was thrown into this project at the beginning of my first documentary class and given a crash course on interviewing the night before. I worked as a one person crew and captured the entire film using a Panasonic HVX.
I hope you enjoy it. Cheers!
