In this short film about an American classic, food photographer and director Thomas Schauer pays homage to the ultimate culinary icon: The Hamburger. Although we see burgers dancing for us on television every day, tempting us to pop down to our local fast-food chain, Thomas takes a different approach using only natural light, the highest quality ingredients, and a montage of mouth-watering imagery that takes our country’s foundational culinary creation to new heights. WARNING: Should you find fast-food burger commercials irresistible and Pavlovian, these next 65 seconds may be your ultimate undoing. Crave away.
