So, a girl moves out to Los Angeles and within one week (thanks to an old friend), lands a great gig as the culinary talent on a new Web TV lifestyle channel that just launched on YouTube called the Kin Community.
This actually happened to me! And it's been a great experience. I am so proud because the people behind it care about putting out high quality, original content as well as being very gracious and fun to work with. It's a young crew of people who are really talented - check out the sets, great camera work and beautiful lighting in each video.
The Kin Eats section is what I worked on and you'll notice me (my hands, sleeves and shirttails, mostly) doing the cooking in just about all the videos that are set to music. I also shot 6 videos as the "personality" and here's the first one, above. It's a recipe for olive stuffed cheese puffs, which make a fabulous hors d'oeuvre for the holidays. They were inspired by my mom's glamorous, Seventies cocktail parties. Speaking of the Seventies, maybe I should do a video on bringing back Harvey Wallbangers - its time has certainly come and it doesn't get more Seventies than that!
Each video recipe is not only user-friendly and accessible but they all use Real Food. Hurray! To me, that's what makes this channel really shine.
The other 5 videos I shot will be coming out steadily through December. Please note that in each one I will be wearing a different piece of fabulous vintage statement jewelry. Hey, these things matter.
There's also some very creative content on fashion already up and more soon on parenting and personal storytelling. I hope you'll tune in and let me know what you think.
