The Taste Talks Awards, sponsored by Northside Media Group hosted its first national awards series in Brooklyn. This awards show brought together chefs and people in the food business to celebrate food, drink, culture, and music in New York.

The Northside Media Group needed some eye popping category videos for the Taste Talks Awards at the end of September. They saw our social presentation at the Northside Festival and asked Mighty Oak to create some video title cards for one of our most delicious projects yet.

We started working with just the Taste Talks Awards logo. From there, we began to brainstorm ideas and created a variety of different concepts. Storyboarding was next on the agenda and bringing in prop stylist Vaughan Glidden. Next was implementation. Carrots, Macaroons, donuts, eggs cracked from lightbulbs, and A LOT of sprinkles were used in the production of these videos.

A main introduction slide and category slides for chefs and restaurants, innovators in the industry, media makers, nominees and winners were integrated into the Taste Talks Awards show on September 26th at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

Congrats to the nominees and winners! To learn more about the Taste Talks Awards, please feel free to visit their website here.
