Recently I had the opportunity to produce a video for a company that produces one of my all-time favorite snacks. Preferred Popcorn is headquartered in Central Nebraska and is one of the largest popcorn producers in the world. I grew up in a nearby town and actually worked in the plant during high school and some into college. Back then (yes, I'm old I apparently), the company was a little smaller and didn't have fancy machines to stack the thousands of 50 pound bags of popcorn onto pallets. That was my job. It was some tough labor, but I loved it!
Last summer they called me up to see if I'd be interested in doing a new video for them that told more about who they are, not just how the company came to be but about how the owners and growers for the company are men of integrity who truly want to make the best popcorn in the world.
I said yes, of course. If you are asked to go film in Central Nebraska in the middle of the summer- always say yes. It's a vast, unique and beautiful place. Producing this video took plenty of sweat and hard work, but I'm glad I had the opportunity to work with such a great company again!
