I write articles, I speak on the radio. I’m also a middle child. So perhaps it comes as no surprise that last year, I decided to add a feather to my cap, leaping into the waves of video production.
What lies above is what happened one morning as I paid a visit to my old boss (and favorite pastry queen), Christina Tosi, over at Momofuku Milk Bar. More specifically, the Momofuku Milk Bar commissary space, located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (the Batman cave of all Milk Bar pastry production.)
Essentially, this is my video version of bring your daughter to work day, only it’s bring your former employee to work day.
Filmed by the immensely gifted Ben Richardson (the cinematographer behind, “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” who also just swept the Indie Spirit awards for Best Cinematographer) and produced by Josh Hetzler Productions, to say that I’m a lucky gal is an understatement.
This video wouldn’t have happened without the unstoppable Director, Mollye Asher, editing beast Elin Gronblom, all around visual wizard, Zoe Shack, sound boss Laura Sinnott, Associate Producer Becky Nordensten, stylist Aly Barohn, Creative Consultant Anna Margaret Hollyman, and drawing wizard Mary Hollyman.
Herewith, an insider’s glimpse into what happens in a typical day at one of the most popular pastry palaces in the entire universe. If you’re on a sugar detox, this is rated R for your eyeballs.
