Delta Airlines // Brown Estate
Director: Austin Moses
Director of Photography: Derrick Bills
Producer: Duncan Littlefield
Days on Set: 2.5
Team Size: 4
Film Locations: Napa Valley, CA
When we were selected by Delta Airlines to tell the story of the Brown family and their winery, we were thrilled with the proposed opportunity. But as soon as we met their family and discovered the story of the only African-American estate winery in Napa Valley this became a passion product for the entire team. No longer were we creating content to pair with wine being served by Delta, we were given the ability to detail the generations of stories that are held in each glass of their wine.
Our team of four headed to California with one story in mind, but what emerged was a completely different (and better product) due to our decision to pivot after meeting the personalities and witnessing the passion of the Brown family.
