Franky Marshall Interview

A great piece of advice that we try never to lose sight of, especially as our industry adapts to this new world.

Franky Marshall is a bartending legend, mentor, mentee and all around character that you can’t help noticing in a crowded bar. She’s worked at some of the most impressive cocktail bars in New York including Clover Club, the Dead Rabbit and Le Boudoir.

We’ve been fortunate enough to work with her multiple times since we filmed Hey Bartender and she always manages to make us laugh, brining a certain level of charm along with her unique quirkiness, to any project.

Thank you for these words of wisdom, Franky!

We love this outtake from an interview shot in 2008 with Doris Kearns Goodwin, world-renowned historian and author.

“Life has a continuum and history provides that.”

John Goodman Interview

#Repost from Douglas Tirola

John Goodman is an Emmy and Golden Globe Winner and an incredibly generous, funny and insightful person. We were honored to interview him for our documentary DRUNK STONED BRILLIANT DEAD.

Here’s a clip that didn’t make it into the film, about finding like-minded people when you see the world different than most.

Lynette Marrero

#Repost of Doug Tirola, director of our 2013 film Hey Bartender.

An inspiring quote from Lynette Marrero taken from an interview in 2011. Lynette is one of the most prominent bartenders in the world and blazed a path for women in the industry: together with Ivy Mix she founded Speed Rack, an all-female high-speed bartending competition designed to highlight up-and-coming women in the cocktail industry and give back to those impacted by breast cancer.

You also might have recently caught Lynette in her first MasterClass with Ryan Chetiyawardana as the they teach you the techniques and skills of a mixologist and how to make amazing cocktails.

In this clip, she explains the role of mentorship in the bartending industry.

Edward Albee

REPOST from Douglas Tirola

Found this interview we did over ten years ago with Edward Albee in his amazing Tribeca loft for our documentary MAKING THE BOYS.

Here is a question I asked him that didn’t make it into the film. Thankfully he didn’t laugh or refuse to answer based on the length of my question. Notice how the camera movement seems to be projecting my own nervousness.

Since it’s Edward Albee he still managed to be brilliant despite my adolescent interview skills.

Dead Rabbit NYC

Dead Rabbit NYC

We’ve just made this video about Mixology & Mayhem. It features talented newcomer Jillian Vose in her screen debut. (‘Is there nothing she can’t do?’ you ask. No there isn’t. We checked.)

In it, Jillian explains the thinking behind the book – providing all of the expert info and insights: no smoke, no mirrors, no bs. There's the techniques, tips and tricks. Our approach to menu design. All the recipes for 100 original cocktails, plus the complete graphic novel that accompanied them. The Rabbit turned up for that bit.

We think it turned out well. We call it ‘By The Book’ – which you are of course also free to interpret as ‘buy the book’.

See what we did there?

Nothing says October like a good spooky video. Check out this video we made to support the release of a new book by the Dead Rabbit NYC.

We’ve made this little video to celebrate the launch of our new book, Mixology & Mayhem. Entitled ‘The Reader’ it’s set in a bookshop around Halloween – coincidentally also when Mixology & Mayhem is being set free on an unsuspecting world…

Many thanks to our friends at Community Bookstore in Brooklyn for letting us in among the shelves at their lovely premises. Thanks also to 4th Row Films, who did such a great job of shooting the video.
