Your guest's will be convinced that they're watching Chef's Table

We use a wide array of cinema equipment, from motorized sliding timelapse rigs (as seen in the first shot in the Netflix’s Chef’s Table intro), to Hollywood style motorized gimbals, an arsenal of highly specialized lighting gear, and extremely high quality microphone systems. We’re obsessed with ensuring our gear is hand selected for each project.

Our restaurant promotional films range from $1,250 – $3,500, based on the complexity of the editing style, and the number of days that we spend filming. We’ll work with you to hone your vision, and create a film that represents your brand’s core identity.

 

An example of a multi-day promo film; follow this link, or click play on the video below to view the film we made for Agora, in Tyson’s Corner, Virginia.

 

Ambiance Films begin at $850. They’re tailored to capture what it’s like to actually dine in your establishment, without bias. There’s no staff, no other guests, nothing except the space – fully prepared for service. 

 

These films are a blank canvas for your guest’s imagination; allowing introverts who want a quiet space, or socialites who want to mingle, to both envision what it’s like to spend their evening in your restaurant.

 

An example of an Ambiance Film; follow this link, or click play on the video below to view the film we made for Donahue, in Georgetown, Washington DC.

Our pricing for our Dish & Cocktail Build films are $250 each, with discounts per film given for shoots that consist of three or more.

 

These films are made to highlight the process of creating a masterpiece in the kitchen or at the bar, showing your guests the work that goes into crafting each piece – while enticing them to try it. These can be filmed in either portrait (9:16) or landscape (16:9) orientation, giving them the proper dimensions for your website, YouTube, Vimeo, or social media apps like YouTube Reels, Instagram Stories or TikTok.

 

An example of a Dish & Cocktail Build Film; follow this link, or click play on the video below to view the film we made for the InterContinental‘s restaurant, at the Wharf, in Washington DC.

 

We charge between $650 and $950 for our moving timelapses, and sometimes less, if it’s being captured during the filming of other content.

These films require highly specialized equipment, and quite the time commitment. They’re captivating; taking the movement of hours, and turning that into seconds – showing the social blood-flow of any given space, and the amount of work that goes into running an efficient kitchen. These are great for stand alone content on social media, but they shine their brightest when used as assets in overall promotional films.

 

Our Moving Timelapse’s are highly complex, comprised of thousands of 60 megapixel images, individually edited in their native RAW format, and then laid out onto a video timeline and sped up to the desired length, delivering a file that is in 10K resolution. Not HD, not 4K, not 8k. 10K

 

An example of our Motion Timelapse; follow this link, or click play on the video below to view the film we made for WHINO, in Arlington Virginia.

 

Not quite a video, and not quite a photo – our 3D Walkthrough Tours range from $550 – $1,250, depending on the square footage of the space. These tours utilize the Matterport system. We create an account for you on their network, allowing you to have full control over your space.

 

These tours are perfect for uploading to Google’s search results, allowing users on Google Maps to walk through your space on their mobile phones, and they’re invaluable for clients to use while remotely planning their private event in your space.

 

An example of our 3D Walkthrough Tours;

DONAHUE, a speakeasy spot in Georgetown, Washington DC.

WHINO, an 8,000 square foot restaurant in Arlington, Virginia.

All TikTok footage is filmed natively in portrait orientation (9:16), to fit the elongated aspect ratio of modern phones – using state of the art cinema cameras, hand selected lenses and a balance of ambient lighting and mobile studio lighting equipment. For all of those nerds, we use the Sony FX3 (at 4k 120fps 4:2:2 color depth), with ultra fast prime lenses and various physical optical filter options.

 

All photographs will be taken with a Sony A7R IV, with various ultra fast prime lenses, and masterfully edited to represent the brand.
