RECIPE UNLIMITED INTERNSHIP
WHAT IS RECIPE UNLIMITED?
RECIPE Unlimited Corporation is Canada's oldest and largest full-service restaurant company. Founded in 1883 as The Canada Railway News Company and later renamed CARA Operations, for 135 years, we have nourished Canadians and helped them celebrate life while enjoying delicious food.
During my time at recipe I was a Production intern. My duties included work on photo and video productions including shooting, editing & graphic design. I had the ability to work with the digital media team and learn skills that included teamwork & collaboration. Recipe allowed for the ability to improve on current skills and learn new ones such as the Capture one software & Adobe tools I had not had the chance of using yet. Overall recipe was a great experience.
PORTFOLIO ITEM #1 - KELSEY’S MENU ITEM
For this particular project we were tasked with shooting 4 different beers in a group shot. It was not as simple as shoot and done. Each beer needed to be shot separately and composited together in post. I assisted the production team during the shoot, and was tasked with editing the shot in post.
Below is the final edit & the various shots from the process:
Please see below for various shots during the editing process:
PORTFOLIO ITEM #2 - montana’s LOGO’S
With a tight deadline approaching for a Montana’s Bar & BBQ training spot, I was asked to trace a variety of Montana’s logos in Illustrator. This allowed me to brush up on my skills in Illustrator by tracing and recreating the logos as vector files for the video editor on the digital team.
PORTFOLIO ITEM #3 - HARVEY’S SOCIAL CAMPAIGNS
April Fools Joke: I was tasked with joining the production team to design and produce “The Desert Burger” an April fools joke for the Harvey’s Canada brand. My role was to help shoot and produce the product that would be posted to social (Image #1)
Harveys Organic Shoot: A team of 3 which included myself were sent on location to get a variety of shots to post on all Harvey’s Social channels. My job included shooting and dressing the product to make sure we had the best images for the organic campaign. (image #2)
PORTFOLIO ITEM 4 - MONTANA’S FOR THE LOVE OF CHICKEN, STEAK & RIBS PROMOTION
Before my internship with Recipe I had the chance to work with the production team on a Montana’s promotion. This gave me my first real experience in a corporate setting at 19 years of age. I was brought in to assist with the shoot and voice my ideas about how some shots would be tackled.
