He apprenticed at New York’s 3-star Michelin, 4-star New York Times-rated Le Bernardin, under executive chef Eric Ripert, served as head cook at Quince Fine Cuisine, tournant at C Restaurant, and senior sous at Milestones’ signature restaurant in Yaletown.”

Thank you to Fray restaurant for allowing us to make this video. We really enjoyed the whole experience and we’ll be back with our friends and family to enjoy the food again!

Also thank you to Katrina and Wilson for assisting me with the lighting and filming of this video.

Technical notes:
Canon EOS T2i with Magic Lantern, Canon 18-200mm IS lens, ISO 6400 (in restaurant), ISO 1600 (in kitchen).
Sony ECM-MS907 condenser microphone on a Rode Shotgun mic clip attached to the camera’s hotshoe, plugged into the camera directly. Manual audio gain was set. Audio was normalized in post.

Editing: Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 (5.5.2) on a Windows 7 Dell PC (Intel i7 processor). Usb 3.0 workflow makes this video very fast to edit (took about an hour to edit).
