Building A Brewery is a three-part documentary film series that follows Reclamation Brewing Company, a small team of American craft brewers from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania trying to fund their dream of opening a craft beer brewery / brewpub. In this episode, Ben Smith, John Smith and Ben Duncan describe why they love brewing craft beer, how they got started home brewing, the importance and history of beer culture, the struggles of starting a brewery and concludes with the launch of their Kickstarter campaign. The documentary was filmed with the Canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR running Magic Lantern with the Canon EF-S 55-250MM F/4.0-5.6 and Canon EF-S 18-55MM F/3.5-5.6 lenses. I used the Davis & Sanford Provista 7518 Tripod with FM18 Head for support along with the Pearstone DWL-2 Universal Tripod Dolly. Audio was recorded with the RODE VideoMic. Video was captured on SanDisk Extreme 32 GB SDHC flash memory cards. The video was edited using Adobe Premiere and After Effects CS5.5 on an Apple Macbook Pro.
