Film Frenzy!

We had a blast this past weekend participating in the First Annual Reel Change Film Frenzy, brought to life by the Alamo Drafthouse and Lights. Camera. Help.  Ten teams of filmmakers were partnered with ten different nonprofits and tasked with writing, producing, shooting, and editing a short film in under 48 hours.  On Sunday evening, we viewed the final products at the Alamo Drafthouse and a winner was crowned.


We were honored to be paired with ONE STORY PRODUCTIONS for our challenge. We began Friday filming at Congress, doing interviews with Sommelier June Rodil and Chef David Bull. Then we headed to the Red Room Lounge at where we hosted a small get together and interviewed 2011 Scholarship Winner, Renee Morgan and the 2011 TexSom Best Sommelier in Texas winner, Bill Elsey. Filming was not done yet! We headed to Max's Wine Dive to interview the wonderful Chef Erica Beneke. On Saturday, we made our way out to Spicewood Springs Vineyard which provided the perfect backdrop for filming.


We are honored to have our video alongside nine other fantastic non-profits! The winner was Austin Bat Cave and fan favorite was Whole Planet. Check out our video titled Eat Well, Drink Better here. Huge thank you to everyone that helped us during our Film Frenzy!
