Inspired by six-time James Beard nominated Chef Whims' many trips to Italy, the kitchen at Oven and Shaker unites tradition and creativity in the arena of wood-fired Neapolitan pizza and Italian street food. Oven and Shaker Restaurant and Bar and the non-profit, Fly Fishing Collaborative, approached us to produce a short film featuring renowned mixologist Ryan Magarian. This cocktail class short film was used in FFC's 2021 Online Banquet and helped raise more than $215,000 to combat poverty and sex trafficking.
An 8-minute short film that was included in FFC's live-stream online event.
Ryan Magarian, the co-founder of Aviation American Gin and co-owner of Oven & Shaker, was an absolute stud and joy to work with. From capturing the look and feel of his restaurant and bar to his charisma and passion for high-end drink-making, we storyboarded a two-take scene by scene as he taught the viewer to make his signature Honey Basil Collins drink.
The short film was a massive success and helped raise more than $215,000 to combat poverty and sex trafficking through FFC.
