My friend Mehrnoosh who, with his wife Gina, owns Casa Mia, is someone always willing to entertain my crazy ideas, and today’s crazy idea was to shoot a daily video introducing the café’s daily specials. So this morning I showed up at Casa Mia with my trusty Nokia N95 phone-cum-video-camera and we shot the pilot, an actual video for today’s actual daily special, which is Grilled California Chicken Pizza:
The pizza actually is very good, and if you happen to be reading this on April 7, 2009 I encourage you to stop by and have it for lunch: it’s $9.95, and enough to feed two people. Tell them you saw the video.
It took about 20 minutes to shoot the video, with little or no advance planning or discussion. It took me another hour to edit it all together in iMovie back here in the office. I’d welcome any comments you might have about the video and the general idea.
The background music is Millie’s Waltz from the Roy Johnstone-Steve Sharratt album Longshore Drift. You can purchase an MP3 of the track for only 99 cents if it strikes your fancy (or buy the entire album — it’s very good).
