Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life (sober) is a motto I keep close to my heart which always keeps my glass (of beer) always half full. My latest foray led me to put together a little pilot episode for a show called “Beers, Bars and Booze with Roberto Serrini” and it’s been really fun watching it delight audiences in film festivals around the world.

The latest comes from the Zagreb International Film Festival, which I was excited to hear back from having been advised that for serial content it was one of the best, and what’s more, they offer reviews of your work, which, for content creators like myself, is worth more than an any award for the shelf. The award is nice too, just to be clear.

“Bars, Beer & Booze with Roberto Serrini” is a great documentary show pilot that talks about alcohol from social, historical and cultural point of view. Within 8 minutes, audience learns a great deal of information on the subject in a fun and easy-going way.

First of all, it is important for such documentary to have a charming host. Roberto Serrini is fun, easy going and fascinating alcohol expert, who is excited about the knowledge he is willing to share. It is as important as to be excited the subject in general. Also, he takes risk to find something new, something nobody has ever seen or experienced before, and it excites audience rapidly.

Second of all, animation adds another layer of depth to the show. It creates a somewhat timeless atmosphere, making viewers participate in historical moments that are being told in the series. Amazing.

Although there are few flaws in terms of sound quality, which can be fix easily, it is a great pilot for an exciting series that can be entertaining, educational and humorous at the same time. I am very excited about this project and can’t wait to see the actual series. Roberto Serrini absolutely has stories to tell, which means audience will get excited to hear them.”

Our little show has won at Roma Creative, Rome Prisma, and is in the running at Tribeca this year as well, so fingers crossed.
