Fundraising film, Short film edit
After closing his two-Michelin Star restaurant, Top Chef Winner Douglas Keane wanted to open a new innovative restaurant in the vineyards of California wine country. The problem was he needed millions of dollars to execute his vision.
We created a highly cinematic value proposition that reminded investors of the tremendous success (two Michelin Stars) that Chef Keane had previously and then transported them from wherever they were in the world to this magical location in a beautifully designed historic building nestled just above the vines in California wine country. The team at Cyrus used the piece to raise the remaining millions needed to fully fund the vision
The impact of Covid on our project was devastating. The whole project was at risk. How could we substitute the experience of walking around the building and hearing about what we had planned with our enthusiasm influencing investors to support us? We needed to translate our passion and the beauty of the project to something that they could absorb in a safe haven while the world waited to see what was going to come next. Aaron and the team at Soulcraft Allstars delivered in a huge way. We were able to attract enough investors and finish our fundraising goal so that the 10 year dream of reopening Cyrus became a reality. The video Soulcraft Allstars made for us was a huge indispensable part of that. And the truly professional and passionate manner in which they approach their craft makes the entire process enjoyable.
