The video I have been talking about in a couple of blog posts now is officially here! It has been quite the amazing journey to follow Soraya Rendon and her staff around these last couple of months.
Besides the video, I have a picture slideshow here that documents some of Alex and I’s journey. These photos are compiled from during the filming and interviewing at Chilam Balam and Shaman. The slideshow will give you a taste (pun intended?) of our production process. You can find the slideshow here.
Another super cool fun fact about our video is that it was chosen to be in the Broadcast Education Association (BEA) Festival of Media Arts. If our video wins a prize, we have the opportunity to go to Las Vegas and receive an award. I will keep you guys updated with all of the results!
Now, the moment you all have been waiting for, here is a link to our video. I hope you enjoy. My hopes are that you’ll watch it and then pay a visit to Chilam Balam and Shaman. How could you not? You will see for yourself, but the food is amazing, made with local ingredients, and Soraya and her staff pour their hearts into it.
Peace, love, and great Chicago eats.
