Hammond’s Candy – Denver, CO

Earlier this year, NOCOAST director Jesse Borrell assisted local DP/Director Jeffery Garland on a commercial shoot at Hammond’s Candies. Hammond’s makes candy the old-fashioned way – by hand – and the company has been operating out of Denver for over 90 years.

Jeffery’s concept was to go backstage to capture how they do what they do, showing how the cook of each batch sees the process through from start to finish in beautiful 4K footage. Over the course of 2 days we filmed a wide range of content on RED Digital cameras, and we rented our gear from Denver’s MP&E Equipment Rentals.  The final edits ranged from their official tour videos, to a variety of commercial spots for television. On top of operating the B-Camera, Jesse filmed over 20 different timelapses and captured behind-the-scenes content of the crew at work:

Our crew for the 2 days was loaded with some of Colorado’s best gaffers and AC’s. Please check out their individual websites to learn more about them, and check out one of Jeffery’s final videos below:
