When we’re not closing down Sunday brunch’s, mixologizing (made up) variations on the Vieux Carre or baking sourdough bread from hundred-year old starter, you’ll likely find us at any of the local farmer’s markets. Local, in season and keeping small farmers afloat is one of our many passions. So imagine how thrilled we were to have the opportunity to work with Serena Creative on a package of public service announcements for Food Forward – “fighting hunger and preventing food waste by rescuing fresh surplus produce, connecting this abundance with people in need and inspiring others to do the same”.
Check out the :60 spot directed by Ric Serena, music by PB, mixed by Durand Trench, location sound by Stan Gonzales!
Artist Robert Townsend, subject of the latest documentary from director Ric Serena, was featured in the March 30 issue of LA Weekly. The three-page article highlights the recent success of the documentary on the film festival circuit and details Townsend’s background and career.
“The unveiling of serendipitous events surrounding the project, coupled with the film’s original score (composed by Paul Bessenbacher of Opus Orange and Matt Bowen)… touches on inspiration, connection and the journey of our belongings after we’re gone.”
The documentary, which features an original soundtrack composed by Emoto Music’s Paul Bessenbacher and Matt Bowen, has already won the Audience Award for Best Short Documentary at the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival and will be showing at several other film festivals this year, including:
Beverly Hills Film Festival: April 6, 7:15PM
NYC Independent Film Festival: Producer’s Club Theater S, May 10, 4:45PM
American Documentary Film Festival in Palm Springs
