Coffee and Culture

Ed Hellman
An ambitious video journalist for a "Coffee and Culture" web series attempts to interview owners and patrons of Brooklyn coffee houses but is met with increasing contempt and rejection.

Behind the scenes of Coffee and Culture

We shot this in 1 day in the heart of Williamsburg, armed with a RØDE mics and a Sony FS5. We had previously attempted the same project in earnest without any comedy but found that no one wanted to talk about their coffee. We decided to embrace the lack of eagerness in the interviewees and depict the most depressing series of interviews ever.
