Blackcurrants, New Zealand

Blackcurrants are one of the world’s greatest miracle foods, very high in anthocyanins and proven to be effective for athletes and regular people alike. The goal of this series was to educate and excite people about blackcurrants, which are highly popular in New Zealand but less well-known in many other countries, including Japan.

This was a challenging project of fifteen videos, and involved spending a week in New Zealand, traveling across the breadth of the country, and interviewing many scientists, entrepreneurs and consumers of blackcurrants. We had to set up quickly, get the lighting and audio ready and interviews recorded, and then move on promptly to the next location and interview. New Zealand was, of course, an absolutely gorgeous location and the people were charming and gracious.
