This morning I saw a blog post on the website for PremiumBeat https://www.premiumbeat.com/blog/first-short-film-canon-c200/
PremiumBeat is a curated royalty-free website that also happens to have a blog about things related to filmmaking. They are one of several sites that offer a blog of this kind and I often read posts such as the one I linked.
This post in particular caught my attention, less because it is about a shiny new camera and more because of the two videos that are contained within. The first is a short film made by Canon with director Andrew Fried and director of photography Byrant Fisher – called “From Dock to Dish”. You can watch it below:
First and foremost I think this is an excellent video. A few months ago my wife and I began watching the four part documentary Cooked on Netflix. We had previously seen two seasons of Chef’s Table (which Mr. Fried is both a producer and director for) and it seemed like a natural extension of our now food-oriented television watching. Both shows are excellent but Cooked caused both of us to start thinking about what we eat, why we eat it and where the food truly comes from.
This video takes a look at that particular chain regarding fish and it’s as entertaining and interesting as any episode of Chef’s Table I have watched (I have now seen all three seasons and Chef’s Table France).
The blog post also contains a second video, which offers behind the scenes interviews and footage about the making of “From Dock to Dish” which I think most people would find interesting. This is largely a promotional film for the C200 but a good deal of the content is about the hows and whys of capturing the images to tell this story. I enjoyed it greatly and I hope you do, too.
