For the first time we’ve got our own video studio in which to work.
Although Mendip Media moved lock, stock and barrel to its new home in July, it’s taken a while to get used to the space and creative freedom of a place designed specifically for filming – especially food filming.
And it is different.
We now control our start and finish hours, which is a luxury, allowing us to spend longer on shots we’d previously have had to rush to make sure we didn’t over-run.
With a chef’s kitchen incorporated into the studio, the food designers are literally humming with pleasure as they work in a bespoke area to create even better looking recipes for the camera.
So we are still pinching ourselves to see whether we’ll wake up from the dream and find ourselves back in the old days, having to book & pay for studio space or continually looking for appropriate houses in which to film both a kitchen set and set up a food design kitchen.
For the moment though we’re enjoying new found freedom and creativity!
