Behind The Scenes With Celebrity Chef Jet Tila

30 seconds – when you are holding an isometric squat or doing jumping alternating lunges, 30 seconds seems like a lifetime. When you are filming Celebrity Chef Jet Tila for a 30-second highlight reel, 30 seconds seems like a minuscule amount of time to capture a ball of talent. Spending the morning with production crew BakerBroductions and filming Jet Tila was definitely more enjoyable than any amount of squats!

Getting everything just right for filming

Baker Broductions in production mode

We spent a beautiful morning in Los Angeles watching Chef Jet work his magic in the kitchen. He is the headlining Celebrity Chef for client, Illumination Foundation’s, large-scale culinary gala at Disney in March. It will be one amazing night to break the cycle of homelessness. The goal was to showcase Chef Jet preparing a signature dish as a tease to the event; OC Chef’s Table 2018. 

Searing the meat

His chef highlight reel will be used across all social media platforms from now through the actual event in March. For this particular event, there will be 32 chef’s preparing a table side, 5-course meal with wine pairings for their guests (10-12 people). So, only 31 more chef highlight reels to go! This is just a small glimpse into the world of film and creative production and taking an hour of content and capturing the magic in a 30-second spot.

Cooked to perfection

Plating and finishing off with the delicious and spicy homemade curry sauce

And the finished product filled Jet’s kitchen with an insanely delicious scent. Chef Jet created a beautiful dish: Thai style lamb with a pumpkin puree and a curry sauce topped with flash fried, pencil-thin leeks… The dish was devoured by the crew.

The finished product…
