Making cofee

My friends Heidi and John have just put their short film “How to Make Cofee” in the can and ready for review. It’s an impressive piece of on-the-fly documentary film making, made under extreme conditions. At 5am. Before running a marathon. In a rented appartment that didn’t have the promised kitchenette equipment. Great example of the use of initiative.

In some ways it feels like a response to my earlier film, “Making an Honest Cup of Tea”, although they’re really showing off by doing the whole cofee thing in one take. Fancy Shmancy.

Making an honest cup of tea

In this small excerpt from an upcoming series, Richard Banks demonstrates the optimal method for successfully making a satisfying cup of tea. Note, that although four mugs are shown being brewed at once, this should not be attempted on the first try. Start small. Use a little cup or something. And work up to it.
