Camera! Lights! Food! Last November I had an opportunity to work on three episodes of "Sean In The Wild" with the host Sean Evans for "First We Feast" Youtube channel in New York City... and it was an absolutely AMAZING experience! Great crew, fantastic food and a lot of fun.
The first episode was with rapper Rich Chigga, about Indonesian food, which I've never tried before. Nasi Goreng (Indonesian style egg fried rice) and Satay Makassar (grilled chicken) were my favourite dishes.
The second episode was with Barbara Dunkelman and Burnie Burns (Rooster Teeth production company). Two Texas locals tried quality smoked meats and talked about the difference between New York and Southern cooking techniques. It was also a very nice episode to work on, but I am my self not a huge fan of BBQ.
My favourite episode was Filipino Food 101 with hilarious comedian Jo Koy, and here are a few reasons why. First of all I tried Filipino food for the first time... and ... It blew my mind. It is absolutely amazing. Chicken adobo (chicken thighs, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic), arroz caldo (A thick chicken rice porridge) and halo-halo for dessert (finely shaved ice and a generous serving of leche flan, gulaman, ube, banana, kaong, beans and garbanzos, milk and a scoop of ube ice cream.... yuuum)
Second of all Jo Koy is a great comedian. It was very hard to keep quite behind the camera. You can actually hear crew laughing when Sean tries to eat balut (17-day-old boiled duck embryo).
Picture of the killer crew. Episodes are filmed on Sony FS7. Looking forward to working with Complex Media whenever I am back in New York. <3
