Welcome to the dark side of food, titled: Black. The first in a series of color inspired films from the mind of Thomas Schauer. In a world where white table clothes and tableware still rule, Thomas flips tradition on its head and showcases what haute cuisine would look like if it were given a well-deserved spanking. Through thoughtful design, years of experience, precision lighting, and some magical fortune, ‘Black’ solidifies Thomas’ expertise as one of the most daring, and even sexy, food film directors in the industry. If chefs are the new rockstars, then Thomas’ food lab is CBGBs, at midnight, in 1982.
