Brixton 2012.

Next Restaurant. Thai Menu. Chicago.

Being a massive fan of Thai food + Chef Grant Achatz, I was stoked on the theme ‘Bangkok 2060’ for one of Next’s seasonal menus. They managed to replicate ‘authentic’ thai cuisine quite well while using molecular gastro techniques. Created by Grant Achatz + Nick Kokonas, Next is an exploration of world cuisine. Changing the menu every few months, Next focuses on another part of the world or theme.

GMO Film Project Sizzler.

Directed by Jeremy Seifert. Produced by Joshua Kunau. Co-Producer, Elizabeth Kucinich. Associate Producer, Timothy Vatterott. Cinematographer, Rod Hassler. By Compeller Pictures.
The GMO Film Project tells the story of a father’s discovery of GMO’s through the symbolic act of poor Haitian farmers burning seeds in defiance of Monsanto’s gift of 475 tons of hybrid corn and vegetable seeds to Haiti shortly after the devastating earthquake. After a journey to Haiti to learn why hungry farmers would burn seeds, the real awakening of what has happened to our food, what we are feeding our families, and what is at stake for the global food supply unfolds in a trip across the US in search of answers.

Michael Pollan’s Food Rules.

By Marija Jacimovic + Benoit Detalle.
Based on Michael Pollan’s talk “Food Rules” given at the RSA, this animation was created in the context of the RSA/Nominet Trust film competition. Using a mixture of stop-motion and compositing, our aim and challenge was to convey the topic in a visually interesting way using a variety of different food products. Amsterdam based editor/animator Marja created the film at home in about three weeks.
