Welcome to the Maine Madness Beer Tournament, pitting 64 of Maine’s best craft brews against each other in a winner-take-all championship that will, for the third year running, name the king of Maine beers.
Dave Patterson, beer columnist for Maine Today, and Tim Ebersold have, once again, gotten together to run this fantastic side-project, and I was thrilled to get asked to shoot another video for the drawing ceremony.
Dr. Rod Nadeau is an adventure-based counselor. He takes extremely at-risk youth from around southern Maine on outdoor excursions (mountain biking, white water rafting, mountain climbing, etc.) to broaden horizons, knock down cognitive barriers, and to educate students about the difference between unhealthy risks (drugs, violence, crime) and healthy risks.
During the bitter Maine winters, he takes students out to a secret climbing spot and teaches them the basics of what many consider a dangerous, intimidating sport.
House of LMD, a Toronto-based design firm led by Lori Morris, teamed up with esteemed floral designer Preston Bailey to produce this centerpiece for the Architectural Digest Home Design Show. Over the course of the weekend, thousands came get their chance to see this work of art, as well as guess exactly how many hand-crafted silk roses were used in its creation.
Alongside the photos that were posted over that weekend, Bertoni Media created this short promotional video to show just what it was like being there in person.
