This is a project that I am very passionate about. I approached the owner of this restaurant with the idea for this documentary. He loved the idea and gave me complete freedom, which is rare. This was shot over 3 days with my Sony F3 and Nikor lens package. For the look I wanted, I chose to use all natural light and I fell in love with the outcome. By just using the daylight from the windows, I was able to get a nice soft look that was natural in appearance. After getting all the footage I needed, I handed the project over to my trusty editor, Nick Shell from Purpose Video and he turned hours of footage into a great story. Nick took his time and showed that telling a story can be a mixture of beautiful images and a great flow that he was able to create on his own.
This was truly a labor of love. Thank you Nick and Jean-Francois.
