Behind-the-scenes with Discovery Channel

The 4 min “How It’s Made” segment of Mom Made Cheese Pizza Munchie  took 16 hours to film. It was a long but very fun day.

The popular “How It’s Made” show has been airing for 15 years so successfully that their strategy is to keep using the same technology and style that they always have. This means rather than high-tech, light weight cameras, they still lug around the 250 lb lights and cameras for each clip. They were meticulous about the filming every part of our process . The segment came out beautifully.

Here are a few of our favorite photos from the shoot.
