Documentary Approach

Our approach for this documentary was to focus on Devan using his passion to help others. We didn’t want this to be a film to say “Look at all the good he is doing” and to put him on a pedestal, but rather use it as an example to hopefully inspire others to use what they love to do for the benefit of others. This translated into the editing, where we focused on showing what an idea can blossom into. We wanted to keep a steady flow of Ethiopian footage and interview shots with Devan, to keep a balance of the two worlds. The interview with Pastor Wollan was a great way to expand the world we introduced and really balanced the film as a whole.

New Topic

I recently changed my topic from Bay Area Independent Coffee Companies to Sintaro Cold-Brew. I did this because a few things didn’t work out and I came to realize I didn’t have a central story to draw in the viewer. So I decided to change quite drastically to focus on a story rather than an overview of different locations here in the bay. My new topic focuses on Devan Blair and his Sintaro Cold-Brew, a brewed cold coffee that he made to benefit an impoverished village in Ethiopia. The trailer will soon be up!
