Documenting New Belgium

Almost two years ago now, New Belgium Brewing announced that they would be building a large brewery and tasting room on the French Broad River in Asheville.  Frothy beverage lovers that we are, we were pretty stoked.  Now that they are about to break ground, we are super pleased to be working with them on a two-year documentary project that aims to capture their ambitious expansion from Fort Collins, CO to their new location in Asheville.  

The project will be a series of six short digital documentary films that will delve into the history of the site, and show the process of what it takes to build a brewery with a liquid center/tasting room right in the middle of a bustling little city, on a site that needs to be reclaimed (brownfields etc) and infrastructure (roads, green spaces and bike lanes etc) that needs to be updated a bit.  

So far, we've gotten to meet some really great, thoughtful NBB-ers, and it's been fascinating to peek into their process and see how the community receives them, while thinking about what Asheville will be when the state-of-the-art brewery opens up in just 18 months.

Stay tuned!

Folkmoot Baby?

While juggling the dozens and dozens of terabytes worth of material we have (ie; moving one chunk from one drive to another less populated drive), I came across a bunch of forgotten footage we shot last summer out in Maggie Valley for the 30th annual Folkmoot Festival. 

Folkmoot is a cultural folk music and dance festival that brings in teams of performers from all over the world to hangout, dance and perform at various functions around WNC for two weeks.  We were tasked with shooting their large scale opening-night-gala with just two cameras and a GoPro, inside an airplane hangar size Grand Ole Stompin' Ground where all the different countries performed their elaborate acts over the course of the three hour event.  Right afterwards we had to turn the whole thing around, editing, mixing, exporting etc in 12-18 hours time frame so it could be burned into Dvds for Folkmoot to sell during the festival. 

I don't remember a whole lot about how it all went off.  I do remember not sleeping for a couple days and a general crushing pressure feeling.  Despite a shipload of technical problems we cut it together and it came out great.  We burned the 1000 Dvds and made our deadline.  I must have blocked it all out.  Which is probably why when I found the footage I was happily surprised at how great and colorful it looked. 

The countries represented were New Zealand, Indonesia, Puerto Rico, Serbia, Belgium, Philippines and Hawaii.  Everyone was very talented and attractive with great costumes.  I think my favorite group was from Puerto Rico.  I feel like the super athletic and highly masculine boys from Serbia had the best time and got the most out of the festival on a lot of different levels though.  There were 200 male and female dancers all staying in one dormitory in Waynesville over the two weeks.  None of the dorm life made it on the Dvd.  I wonder if there were any cross cultural (most likely half Serbian) baby dancers made that weekend.
