I am the Media Manager for this shoot. That means I collected all the video and audio files and cloned them onto various hard drives. My job is to ensure the integrity of the data thru the Production Pipeline.


We interviewed Victoria Butler, a direct descendant of the man who created the recipe for Jack Daniels.
