The Burgerlution World Premiere!

Written by Sarah. Posted in blog spotlight, life, movies, new york city, party

Hey there! I’ve been away again. And not making socks. This time it was down to business! Jon and I can’t believe that our little baby is all grown up and ready for the world to see! Our amazing brunch buddy Ashley stepped up to the plate and helped us complete the film. And, oh my god, she really made it come together!

Well, guess what! No sooner than we finish the film, we found out that it’s official, we’ll be kicking of the New York City Food Film festival with our premiere!!! The Burgerlution is part of the Cheers to Burgers and Beers event which includes fresh-made burgers and hand-crafted beers!

Come out and celebrate the world premiere October 13th at Tribeca Cinemas. More information and tickets here!

The Burgerlution: It’s All Happening!

Written by Sarah. Posted in life, new york city

Hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend! I found out some very exciting news this weekend. I am happy to announce that The Burgerlution will be screening at the Dusty Film and Animation Festival.

The Dustys are actually a showcase of the senior films at our school but it will be the first time we get to see the film on the big screen.

It is very exciting but also a little nerve-wracking to show the film to our friends, family, and total strangers. We are very happy to hear what people think of the film. Then we are going to end our vacation from the project and give it another over-haul so it’s ready for the big festivals!

Come check out The Burgerlution on Monday, May 9 at 6:40pm at the Visual Arts Theatre in the Beatrice Theatre, 333 W 23rd St (btwn 8th and 9th Ave). It’s free so bring your friends!

The Burgerlution

Written by Sarah. Posted in blog spotlight, life, new york city

Vegetarians, I apologize. This post is about the pure carnivorous deliciousness of the American dietary staple: The Hamburger. I promised I would tell you what I was up to, this is it.

Recently, Jon and I have been on a quest to find the most delicious burgers in the New York City area. I’ve mentioned his project before but we’ve come a long way over the past few months. Jon and I are making a documentary about the evolution of the hamburger and it’s called The Burgerlution. He’s writing a really fun blog about all of the burgers he’s been trying out.  We spend a lot of time eating burgers these days and I think I’ve become a bit of a burger snob!

Last week we went to Bill’s Bar and Burger where we met with the Chef, tried some yummy cheeseburgers and also got to snag an interview with George Motz. He’s a really cool guy that also made a movie about burgers!

Here we are in action:

This weekend we’ll be shooting even more exciting stuff for the film. I’m having such a good time making this movie. There is a whole world of special hamburger foodies out there and it’s really cool to meet them and learn things about hamburgers that had never crossed my mind when I was chowing down on a Happy Meal back in the day. Not only am I proud to be involved in the project but it is really great to be working side-by-side with someone I trust and understand. It makes the whole process feel like less work and a lot more love.

The film will be premiering in May! I’ll update you closer to the event so you can all come out and sink your teeth into a juicy film (I hope I never write another pun on this blog). Until then, check out the film’s blog The Burgerlution to see some of the other places we’ve visited or follow us on twitter @TheBurgerlution!
