One of the things we love about our job is that we get to work with so many different kinds of people! And that doesn’t mean just our clients — a couple of weeks ago and also a few months back, we were able to work with Seabiscuit Films, a production house that makes awesome videos! We first collaborated late last year to work on a teaser video for Shawarma Bros, a new food truck business that sells super delicious shawarma rice! We were able to work again just this January on a new video for Shawarma Bros’s new product, their Chicken Naan Pockets.
Check out the amazing video shot and edited by Seabiscuit Films, with food styling by Tender Blender! Also, here are a few behind the scenes photos from our shoot day!
Our call-time was at 6:30 in the morning so we were basically fuelled by the great-tasting coffee at Rammy’s.
Seabiscuit’s Director of Photography, Aaron, had brought out a Canon 5D MkIII with a 100mm f/2.8 and I ALMOST DIED WITH ENVY alskgjalghae;gha’igha THE BOKEH IS AMAZING ON IT. But anyway, back to being somewhat composed, watching from behind the camera got us all excited to see the final output! It also burned into my brain what lens I need to get next, LOL.
It really is a whole different thing when we’re hired to do styling for video. The set turns into a beautiful mess!
Rammy, our Shawarma Bro during the day, was our gracious host (and one of our hand talents after our naan bread chef Emerson left later on in the day)! When he wasn’t our talent yet, he watched from behind the camera with the rest of us. :D
Because it was a video shoot, Nicky & Aaron did a lot of the work while we stepped in every now and then to assist with styling food. Kiks occupied himself with Marvel vs. Capcom on his iPad Mini when we had some down time! Haha :)
Dough for the naan bread rolled out! We’d need quite a few for all the takes, and then we’d need to pick the best looking ones for the final dish set up.
Kiks was Tender Blender’s star for the day, as he did most of the styling. He even worked his styling magic to get the steam at 00:27 and 00:36 in the video!
And of course, the final dish! My role in the shoot came at the end, but it was worth getting up at 5 AM! Kudos to everybody at the shoot! Our kind of porn indeed!
With that, we invite you to head on over to Cucina Andare at the Glorietta 3 Park to check out Shawarma Bros and their amazing food! Maybe even take a photo in front of their awesome food truck. :)
