FIVE to SEVEN is a collection of short films that we call moving portraits of creative people in their kitchens. The name and essence of the project were inspired by the apéro hour tradition in France, of getting together in the the afternoon or early evening hours for snacks and sips with friends and loved ones. It's the time to come together, conversate, flirt, share, catch up after the day's activities.
This project was created to capture the warm and nourishing nature of time spent making stuff to share with others in the quiet and relaxed hours of the day. We hope to share the quality and simplicity of these moments by inviting the viewer into the homes and to the tables of some awesome and friendly strangers.
We are compelled to tell the stories of the creative and inspiring individuals around us, outside of their work environments and through a personal glimpse of who they are what they bring to life in their kitchens and homes.
Thanks for joining us. We hope you enjoy watching as much as we've enjoyed creating.

We are both native Californians who call Los Angeles home. When not happily filming people in their homes (and going through their stuff while they cook for us) we can be found at our favorite semi-secret beach plotting what to make, film, eat, drink, and where to go next...
