The Tasting Class - Corporate Tastings at Asia De Cuba

We are regularly hired by The Tasting Class to capture their fun events, including wine and beer tastings, and so they approached us to film and photograph a medium-size event for a corporate client in 2019. This saw 30 people from their client’s company gather to taste different wines and play games in which they competed to guess the origin of each bottle correctly.

During the evening, we captured footage of guests mingling and delighting at the experience of the wine tasting. We went behind the bar to gain a close-up view of the wine being poured and set up a time-lapse to capture the many guests enjoying the event and venue. We also conducted interviews with several guests and members of The Tasting Class team who attested to the high quality of the event and the great fun that they had.

Our crew for this shoot consisted of one camera operator, one photographer and one assistant to ensure that we were able to capture the full essence of the event.

Following the event, we utilised the content from this one event to create numerous different assets with a range of purposes. Firstly, we created a 2-minute highlight video of the corporate wine tasting, which featured interviews from various guests and exciting shots of the fun that was had by all. We then created six short films of 20 to 40 seconds each that featured interviews answering specific questions such as what you can expect at a wine tasting event. Lastly, we created four one minute corporate asset videos focusing on particular aspects of the business, including corporate tastings, public tactics and the WSET courses offered by The Tasting Class.
