Hollywood celebrates Wincle.

Crows Nest Films have been decorated in Los Angeles for our award winning content.  Carney was in Beverly Hills on behalf of the crew, picking up a medal for Best Green or Organic Film at the 10th Annual Taste Awards last night.  

To produce the heralded film, Carney joined Waterford Distillery's Mark Reynier on an incredible learning journey in Alsace, France.

The group, including 2 of Waterford's farmers Trevor and John, as well as Edward Kehoe from Minch Malt, received an Alsatian education researching biodynamic organic farming.  The enthusiasts spent 3 days in the region visiting the Domaine Valentin Zusslin, Distillerie Windholtz, Bingert and Zind-Humbrecht domaines. Biodynamic agriculture is similar to organic farming, but includes a selection of esoteric concepts drawn from the ideas of Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner. Initially developed in 1924, it was the first of the organic agriculture movements.

The trip to SoCal also provided a cherished opportunity to catch up with our favourite high-energy pop-funk duo Cake Without Candles.  CWC are comprised of stuntwoman, acrobat and Transfuze designer Elisabeth Carpenter and Hollywood music producer and drummer Scotty Lund.  You can download their eponymous E.P. here on iTunes. The supremely talented duo also accompanied Carney to the awards ceremony at the Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills.  The star studded event was attended by actors such as Rachel McCord, presenters included Andrea Feczko, Jessica Vilchis, Michelle Haris, Emmy award nominee Kim Estes, The Potash Twins and Nyesha Arrington.  Food Network's Melissa d'Arabian presented Carney with our award.
