Meaningful Food Moments Video Project
Share your best story about home-cooking.
Staff Pick

Due July 23rd, 2015 - For nearly 100 years, Thermador’s innovative cooking appliances have been bringing families together over delicious home-cooked meals. They’re looking to celebrate those meaningful food memories – the warm, nostalgic moments of families and friends cooking, sharing and enjoying food at home.

What’s a fond memory from your life when you and those you love bonded over a home-cooked meal? Perhaps it was when your whole extended family came together over a special reunion dinner. Perhaps it was that first Thanksgiving away from home, when you threw a special “Friendsgiving” with all your friends. Or maybe it was that time your grandmother finally showed you how to hand make gnocchi just like her.

Thermador wants to see your videos recounting those authentic food moments. If your Moment video is picked as a winner, it’ll become part of a touching longer-form Video created by the Pitch winning filmmaker. It might even influence Thermador’s next campaign!

Project Objectives
The goal of this project is to create a 30 to 60 second Moment video recounting a meaningful memory you have of cooking, sharing and enjoying food at home with family or friends. One Pitch winning filmmaker will then create a 90 - 120 second combination Video incorporating original footage and the winning Moment videos. The Pitch Winner will also edit the winning Moment videos as standalone films.

***There are two very different stages for this project so please pay careful attention to the details at the link below.***

1. Moment submitters will submit a talking head style video recounting their meaningful food moment. Ten Moment Winners will be selected.

2. Filmmakers will then pitch to create a 90-120 second Video combining the winning Moment videos and original footage of their own. One Pitch Winner will be selected. He/She will also edit the ten winning Moment videos as standalone films.
