It would appear that potato PR has hit a low point due to foodies looking down their noses at the starch as a poor option for classy cookin’. Movements taking a stand against nightshade foods are giving the potato a bad wrap. And the Idaho Potato Commission aims to do something about that.
Insert Food Network star and retro rad chef Emily Ellyn. The totes adorbs mother of all things retro and bygone. She’s fun, she’s fashionable and she’s cooks one helluva potato.
When I was still living in the UK, I was hired by the Orlando digital marketing agency Laughing Samurai to help them produce three stir and serve cooking videos featuring Emily. We worked remotely for a couple months leading up to the gig and I was present for filming in February 2017, acting as both creative producer and 1st AD. I loved working with creative director Gilbert Gomez and Orlando production company Studio Say So.
We filmed on the sound stage at Orange Studio in the Mills50 District of Orlando. Enjoy!
