In response to a recent casting call posted at the California BBQ Association website, I shot a 4-minute audition video on January 31, 2009, to be submitted for the Food Network’s Bobby Flay Grill It program. I’ve followed Bobby’s career for many years and I’m a huge fan. It would be such a privilege to be able to cook with him. The final video is being edited by my childhood friend Peter (www.PeterPhun.com) who’s a commercial videographer. Once ready, I’ll post on Bobby’s Food Network site. Please go there to rate it (hint: 5 stars) and post a comment (hint: you loved it!) so I may score in the popularity rankings like American Idol. I will shamelessly provide free BBQ samples if you do my bidding.
Here is my home video of the shoot, stills, post-production work (e.g., blanching the lobster for grilling), bloopers, and credits. Thanks again Peter for helping me out. Hope I get called on the show amid the very stiff competition from all the cooks in America who want to be on Bobby’s program!
