A celebration of everyday Foodies who translate their passion for hospitality and cuisine into extraordinary community experiences.
NEW INCENTIVE LIVE NOW: $125 pledge = Reward of Homemade Pasta, Cutlery, Artwork & Episode Credits!
"Good Taste & Gatherings", a DOCUMENTARY WEB SERIES, is a celebration of everyday Foodies who translate their passion for hospitality and cuisine into extraordinary community experiences.
This show will offer the “why” stories behind a Foodie's handiwork and the “what” he brings to the table for his community; and discovering this community is a significant highlight of each episode - you'll get an up close look into great companies, organizations and neighborhoods near you. The Foodie’s positive and significant impact on others is the final product...This is the beauty shot of each story!
We're using our expert detective casting skills to find the Foodies and communities that matter most, who have a beautiful story to tell and can inspire others to gather around good food.
Our FIRST TWO EPISODES will feature Foodies from these two fantastic communities!
DARLING MAGAZINE, a former successful Kickstarter:
MUSEMENT, a Los Angeles-based community art thrashing experience:
OUR 3RD EPISODE COULD BE YOU, KICKSTARTER FANS!
Check out our incentives and UPDATE #2 to learn how you can PITCH yourself as the featured Foodie and/or your personal community. If you're a Foodie without a community event in mind, not to worry, we'll find you one! And if it's your community you're pitching but you don't have a Foodie within, once again don't worry, we'll find you one! Who knows, maybe two Kickstarter donors giving their pitches will make the perfect match for that 3rd episode.
THEN, we shoot all 3 episodes!
The community's main event to be filmed is our version of the main course - where we pull out the cameras and capture the whole thing in action. We'll start "behind-the-scenes" in the Foodie's "kitchen", where he creates his craft. We'll dig deep and discover why he's passionate about his craft of cooking and hosting a memorable gathering. Then we'll meet his community and all the characters within it, capturing their response as they engage in the food experience that's gifted to them. All of us behind the camera will be hungry by the end of it.
Once the event is all captured on camera, we'll head to the cutting room where we pick and choose the soundbites, the beauty shots of food and the most endearing community in order to frame a moving story! Not to mention, we create original sweeping musical score that will lift the story off the screen and into your hearts forever (yes, it's that magical).
The final step is the most rewarding of all: where YOU get to experience these short documentaries online, a complimentary viewing service brought to you by the internet, us and other supporting Foodies around the world. Buon appetito!
