Filmmaker Brandon Loper has been working on a feature film about specialty coffee. We had the chance to meet Mr. Loper at our Cupping California event at SFMoMA in August, where he shot scenes of guests cupping a table of over forty different coffees from California roasters. The trailer for his film features Ritual Coffee Roaster's Eileen Hassi and Blue Bottle Coffee's James Freeman as well as scenes from source and cafes worldwide.
More on Brandon Loper:
Born, raised, and educated in Alabama, Brandon Loper has been working commercially in San Francisco for the past 6 years cultivating his craft of telling stories through advertising and short films. While his southern roots keep his directing style humble, conversational, and honest, Brandon’s experience in advertising demands a high standard of work that is stimulating, artful, and distinct. His disarming demeanor makes him uniquely adept at hearing and telling stories over strong cups of single origin coffee or a glass of small batch rye whiskey. Brandon’s first feature film, due out in 2013, will explore the global culture of specialty coffee.
