Check out the show opener video for the 2014 Arts and Media Festival called Food For Thought. In this film, the Food Network holds a 100 million dollar cooking competition at MxCC. The competition brings out the best and worst in MxCC’s faculty, staff and students.
This parody of the Food Network’s show Chopped ended the hiatus we’ve been on. It’s been five years since we’ve done an end of the year video, but since this was the 10th anniversary of the Arts and Media Festival, we decided to pull out all the stops and do something Rick Ericksen and I envisioned years ago: Taste-O-Vision. Thanks to the Elena Sanchez and Rose Picarelli, a script was created and production began. Thanks to everyone else in the department pitching in! After a couple of really late nights of editing, we were able to pull this one off in a few weeks.
This is the first “End of the Year Video” to shoot most of the scenes “television style”, using up to three cameras at the same time. President Anna Wasescha makes her debut in this video.
There’s a short introduction at the beginning that explains how Taste-O-Vision works. At the Arts and Media Festival, we actually handed out 100 “Flavor Trays” to the audience. However, if you want to experience this film in Taste-O-Vision you’ll just need seven Jelly Belly (jelly beans) with the following flavors in this order:
2. Root beer
3. Strawberry Daiquiri
4. Green Apple
5. Buttered Popcorn
7. Dr. Pepper
