The BUGS Kitchen

Here they are, all four episodes of The BUGS Kitchen:

Films About Food Opening!

This past Saturday BUGS had their big video opening at The Creative Alliance. We showed our cooking videos at the Food Network event. It was so nice to share this event with our wonderful students, and have their proud parents along as well.

Welcome to the BUGS Kitchen!

Question: What is hotter than the summer of 2010, made by BUGS students and will make you very hungry? The BUGS Kitchen Cooking Shows! BUGS teamed up with Wide Angle Youth Media (www.wideanglemedia.org) to create four amazing cooking videos. David Sloan and his youth assistant, Doug, from Wide Angle taught BUGS students all about film production, camera angles, sound and script. Then, we all got to work both in front of and behind the camera. The vibe was serious but fun, and the finished product looks amazing! Don't take my word for it, see for yourself.

You can now watch the first two videos on Vimeo starring Aijha Pack and Ranoah Johnson (pictured above) and Miyah Montgomery (below). You'll laugh, you'll laugh some more, then you'll be so hungry you'll run to the store! Check out the Pickles video here: http://www.vimeo.com/14775554 , and then watch the Hot Sauce video here: http://www.vimeo.com/14776103

BUGS will be premiering all four videos at the Creative Alliance on Saturday, September 18th, 2010, from 5:30 - 7:30 PM (free) as part of their new art installment, "Food Network." We will be selling DVD's of the videos as well as answering all of your filming and cooking questions. There will be awesome art, free food and a chance to meet the stars of The BUGS Kitchen. We'll see you there!

And don't forget to tune in next week for, Pesto, a silent film, and Peach Salsa, a mystery.
