I saw an add on Craig'sList and figured "why the hell not." Had in interview a couple days later and before it sunk in, I was on set filming. Last season, Eric Ripert was the celebrity chef. This season it is David Chang. If you have never heard of this guy, you absolutely have to check him out. Awesome.
The first episode, I was just background. My job was to fillet mackerel. You might just see a Nenox gyuto and a Shigefusa yanagi on HBO...
Today, we shot the 2nd episode and I got a bit more face time. In the morning we got a plating demo by Chang and we saw how the dishes were supposed to look. We shot a service scene today and I had a blast. This TV/Movie industry is crazy. So many moving parts and people everywhere. Speaking of it. The set is incredible. It is a reproduction of Momofuku Ko in New York. It is amazing what these set guys are capable of.
I have a few pics I took with my iPhone. I'll try and get them uploaded later on and post them in here.
Oh by the way. I think the season starts on April 24th.
