SIP Coffee and a Starwood Video Sneak Peek

The last few days have been a whirlwind. I was working with Full Lock Media (and some other extremely talented vendors and friends) to create a wedding short film to promote SPG Weddings. The past couple of days have been long, but I have enjoyed every second of the creative process. I now understand why they call it a ‘production’ – it takes a village. A very talented village to create a video.

One of the scenes called for our couple to meet at a coffee shop. My friend Teri (whose company helped create the script) found this really cool coffee shop in south Scottsdale called, SIP Coffee & Beer House. We had such a blast filming at this location.

SIP Coffee is fairly new to Arizona (about 6 months) and is one of those coffee shops you go to in the morning and want to just camp out all day. I guess that’s a good thing, because SIP is also a Beer House, serving up live music and brews in the afternoon.

SIP has great coffee (provided by Cartel Coffee) breakfast sandwiches that I’m still thinking about and a really cool, eclectic vibe. My favorite nook in the coffee house is an area right when you walk in … it reminds me of “Central Perk” in Friends.

Well done, SIP. You have created a very cool, downtown coffee shop that leaves everyone feeling like they are enjoying a cup of joe with familiar faces in a neighborhood hot spot.

True story. When Kapil, Jameson and Lee were not looking, I ate part of their breakfast sandwich. What? We were all close friends by this point and it looked so tempting. Plus, they were busy.

Ironic that the guys huddled around this particular sign? They act like they didn’t plan it, but I think they had an idea. What a day this was! Special thanks to Full Lock Media for always being so professional, collected, creative, and such a joy to work with!
