dans ma cuisine / by Stephen Meaux

"dans ma cuisine" is the name of a cooking series I am working on. I've been working on it since November of 2013 and I am nearly finished making it. The idea first came to me after I bought a  camera. I watch a lot of cooking shows on TV. I like watching chefs making different meals, describing the process and why they add each ingredient. 

So one day I decided to film myself making lunch. I actually just heated up leftovers from the night before but it was really just to see what it would look like. I put the food in the bowl, microwaved it and then ate it. After that I went shoot some b-roll around my house then recorded some voiceover describing each step in the process. Once all that was complete I added some music under it and had myself a three minute video. I showed it to some friends and they really enjoyed it. 

So I filmed eight people cooking different Cajun dishes in the comfort of their own home. The meals range from smoked ponce to turkey neck maque choux to okra gumbo. I even got some friends of mine to make some Cajun music for it. So we got Cajun food, Cajun music, Cajun homes and Cajun folks. Can't get any better than that.
