Trisha’s Southern Kitchen – Cooking

Condensing time without losing continuity…

Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, which I worked on for four seasons, had some challenging edit rules.  There could be no jump cuts of any kind, perceived continuity of movement was very important to our producer.  We needed to hear the recipe be explained, see each ingredient, gracefully slide 1-2 personal stories into the mix, and do it as quickly as possible.

Here’s how to make a coconut pie, plus a trip down memory lane, in under 3 minutes.
