Mike Lee from Studiofeast wore a Contour HD camera on his head to capture his team’s main course execution for the L Train Lunch. This video captures the entire experience from the staging apartment, to platform plating, to train service in a first person point of view.
It’s been over a month since Studiofeast collaborated with A Razor, A Shiny Knife, The Cheeky Chef, Winetology‘s Jonny Cigar and many others to plan and execute the L Train Lunch. Since then, we’ve received a lot of attention and the reactions from people have been overwhelmingly positive with coverage in countless publications. Our main video, edited by Ronen V, has collected over 250,000 views and Melena Ryzik’s piece in the New York Times has spawned new countless conversations from friends old and new.
While you may or may not have heard one piece of the story about this event from the media sources above, I wanted to share with you a video from the Studiofeast vantage point. This event was a large undertaking, with A Razor, A Shiny Knife spearheading the overall concept execution and various groups such as ourselves and The Cheeky Chef dividing and conquering the courses.
Team Studiofeast was responsible for the main course, which arrived on the train at the Morgan stop in Bushwick, Brooklyn. We had our 5 person food crew along with our photographer David Christiansen (his photos are at the end of this post), and I wore a Contour HD camera mounted to a sweatband on my head. Above is the 18min feed from that video camera where you can follow along with our team from the staging apartment, to platform plating, to service on the L Train. It’s a long video for sure, but I wanted to share with you this unique viewpoint on what it was like to execute this event. Hope you enjoy.
