Indonesian Food with a Taste of Rasa Sayang and Yayu Slocock
Smudgerhunt Film’s first foray into filming a cooking program aimed for the broadcast/DVD markets and also uploaded to the internet as a web series.
This was a multi-camera shoot with the main camera a Panasonic AF101 fitted with a Nikon 50mm lens and tripod mounted to provide general coverage, and the second camera a Canon 5D MKII fitted with a macro lens, the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM, used handheld without the benefit of a shoulder rig to follow the cooking and preparation processes. We also used a small slider for dolly shots, tracking in and from side to side. Uniquely we use the slider to support the camera looking down onto the subject and used gravity to zoom onto the food dishes and ingredients positioned below.
We have produced five short films typically of 4 minutes duration, with each video concentrating on a single traditional Indonesian food. The eventual aim is to produce a comprehensive range of videos to complement a series of 2 books of the Indonesian food recipes, these books can now be purchased from Amazon or directly from A Taste of RASA Sayang in Wimborne Dorset.
A Taste of RASA Sayang run a number of Indonesian Food cooking courses throughout the year from a large private Georgian dwelling based in Wimborne, Dorset. From the same location they also run art classes in watercolour painting, specialising in flowers and nature.
