At Windsong Productions, we like it when business owners are as passionate about their work as we are about ours. Dave Fansler definitely fits the bill. As owner of Pismo’s Coastal Grill, Westwoods BBQ and Yosemite Ranch Steakhouse, he was the obvious choice to speak to the quality of the food and the experience.
Pismo’s, Westwoods BBQ and Yosemite Ranch are very different restaurants with different vibes, so we wanted to give viewers a feel for what it’s really like to eat at each of these local favorites. Skipping the staged studio food shots, we filmed documentary-style à la food-focused travel shows, and interviewed Dave to provide the expert commentary. The fast pace and tasty shots really capture the energy and the sizzle that keeps Dave’s customers coming back.
