Episode 65: Halfway across America

The Perennial Plate is halfway through its 6 month film shoot/real food expedition across the country.  Its been an amazing ride thus far.  We’ve made a dozen episodes and we have many more on the way, at the rate we are going, I’m sure there will be well over 30 short films.  This video shares the trip at halfway, full of unseen footage, favorite moments, and sneak peaks, this is three months of hunting, diving, farming and eating around the Western half of America.  We wanted to reignite the excitement about the project and get people jazzed for the second half of the trip!

    When the news around us feels so oppressive, your trip, these pictures, these stories takes us away, connects us in some way to others and reenforces our faith in humanity. Bless you.

    Mirra, another great editing job. You are the real talent on this road show. The music is always right on the spot. I have to agree with Foody2 and Oliver that with all the depressing things that seem to be happening in the world at the sametime your snippets are refreshing to the soul. I was only kidding Daniel all of the dishes that you have plated are mouth watering. Looking forward to next few segments.

      Thanks Mitch! Though I will accept the title of “the real talent on the show”, sadly I cant lie about the editing. Thats all Daniel.

    Amazing clips Danny it must have been a fantastic experience, continue to enjoy what you are doing like you always have in the past… Regards to the family from us all xxxx Hayles family

    I can hardly believe that you actually captured Mirra on camera! She’s usually more elusive than Bigfoot!

    Wonderful. Reminds me of something that the Roman poet Horace wrote: 

    Caelum non animum mutant qui trans mare current

    Which I render into English as “Those who cross the sea changes their skies, not their souls”.
