About a year and a half ago, we were approached by a producer out of Houston TX about the possibility of making a TV show pilot. He said it would feature travel and beer. After talking to Chris and agreeing on terms, we decided to move forward with the project.
Chris flew up from Houston and he, along with Jason Randles from Deschutes Brewery and our crew filmed for three days in the beautiful city of Bend OR.
The edit took us a while. We hired the super talented Duane Shrode and he, along with Marshall Burgtorf and myself (Paul) edited and color corrected/ and picked up shots/and edited and color corrected until we were done. In the meantime, Chris was floating the show in front of networks. They all came back with one piece of advice: “Add travel.”
So in March 2015, Chris flew back to Bend and we filmed him participating in various Bend OR type sports.
Marshall edited it in and boom! Here you go: WK’s first TV show. We hope there will be many more.
