Micro documentary about candy making sweet!

As I had mentioned in an earlier post, we shot a short film (micro doc) about confectioner Minas Zuniga of Coastal Confectionery and his love of making candies. It was a real joy to watch Minas, a quite, unassuming person, in his natural element. Minas is self-taught through books and experimentation and can create a range of custom treats.

Here is the finished film:

finishing notes

One of the neatest things that happened on the film (aside from enjoying the candy spoils from the shoot) was acquiring the music. I happened to stumble upon Reynold D. Philipsek, a musician, jazz guitarist, singer-songwriter and poet. Reynold was gracious enough to allow us to use his song “Grey Chalet” in the film and it fit perfectly. I highly recommend visiting Reynold on his website and on iTunes.
