Food video production and still photography for cooking videos is exciting, fun, complicated and yes, sometimes stressful. But Matthew and Company has it down to a science which eliminates the stress. Well, most of it anyway.
Bringing the right video crew together for your food production is important. We have access to some of the most talented people in our area. So finding the right Producer, Director, Director of Photography, Gaffer, Sound Operator, Food Stylist, Set Dresser, Still Photographer, Special Effects Technician and Talent are essential. Pre-production planning and scheduling are essential to a successful food video production and timing is everything!
The proper tools are also essential for food videos. Selecting the right camera, lighting and gear package for each video production is important. Also, choosing the right tabletop props, location and kitchen set are important. We own one of the largest selections of napkins and table coverings for still photography sets. Our portable kitchen has a working sink, a four burner gas stove top and plenty of working cabinet space. It can be set up just about anywhere.
This food video is a compilation of footage shot for various clients primarily for commercial use. Clients include Shan Foods, American Heart Association, Sirloin Stockade, Montana Mike’s, Coyote Canyon, Silver and Stone and Texas Steak Express.
On the other side of the “kitchen counter” so to speak, is video production for cooking shows or demonstration of easy dinner recipes. The Simple Cooking with Heart series that you will also find samples of on our web site, also takes a tremendous amount of coordination and specialized production crew to produce informative and appetizing results. Food video production and on set food preparation are one of our favorite types of production.
