Hank’s Seafood: A Lowcountry Legend

Client: Charlestowne Hotels

Hank’s Seafood Restaurant has been voted Charleston’s best seafood restaurant for 18 consecutive years. Our goal was to show viewers how Hank’s sources its seafood locally and sustainably from boat-to-table. To share this story, we focused on one of Hanks most well-known dishes, The Bouillabaisse.

This was a two-day shoot. On day one we filmed with Clammer Dave and did a pre-light in our kitchen location. Then, on day two we captured all of the cooking and finished plate scenes. Additionally, we recorded the voiceover in studio with some authentic Lowcountry talent.

Vive Media has mastered the art of storytelling. From concept to completion, they bring imagination, enthusiasm and precision to every project – I'm proud of everything their team has produced for us.
