Running behind kinds with with the camera at their height produces magic every time. Using a wide angle lens lets you never have to worry about your shot (because you almost always have something).
As soon as I saw it, my heart sank a bit. I don’t know if any of the aforementioned fine folks are even familiar with the aforementioned Campus Sessions, but they are similar enough that I’m sure they assume I’m a big dumb copy cat.
I honestly had no idea this project existed until this morning, but I still need to give them props for coming up with the idea (and executing it beautifully) first.
Check out all the Small Town Sessions videos.
Last weekend, we took Claire outside for a little walkabout in her sled. I filmed the little outing, and cut this together.
I enjoy cooking quite a bit. I love taking raw ingredients, and then chopping and grating and mixing and slicing and frying and creating them into something new and tasty.
What I’ve never really enjoyed, however, is recipes. Sure, I know some dishes need their chefs to follow the directions step by step to a T, but I hate having to go back to a book or computer or phone to see how many teaspoons of cinnamon I’m supposed to add.
Therefore, I have a mental collection of what I like to call “unrecipes.” They’re simple, straightforward recipes that are easy to memorize but yield tasty little meals or snacks.
The other evening, I filmed one of my favorites: baked haddock.
I’ve always wanted to do a video recipe, and figured that an easy to memorize unrecipe would be an ideal candidate for one. This one is straightforward enough for any dude to make, and is tasty and fancy enough to impress even the most discerning of dates.
This video serves another purpose as well: it’s something of a pilot. I’ve wanted to produce a regular video podcast for a while now, and thought that unrecipes would make for a good subject. I’m soliciting feedback on whether folks would dig more regular videos like this one. Lemme know what you think.
