Jameson® Unveils 2016 'First Shot' Winners

imageJameson® Irish Whiskey has unveiled the three winners of the 2016 Jameson First Shot competition, an international short film competition giving aspiring writers and directors their 'First Shot' into the film industry. The three are now following their passion for film and are preparing to shoot in Los Angeles where they will receive expert guidance from Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti, President of Trigger Street Productions, to bring their script to life.



Working with a talented team of film professionals, the Jameson First Shot program is helping the winners – Cameron Thrower(California, USA), Kat Wood (Sheffield, UK) and Jason Perini (Sydney, Australia) – pursue their passion for film. The winners will also have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to direct Maggie Gyllenhaal, one of Hollywood's most critically acclaimed talents. Gyllenhaal's appearance in Jameson First Shot sees her following the footsteps of Kevin Spacey, Willem Dafoe, Uma Thurman and Adrien Brody.



"I am so proud to be a part of Jameson First Shot. I am always looking for new, fearless voices in the world of film, so I'm excited about helping these talented writers and directors express their vision," said Gyllenhaal.



Rather than congratulating the winners directly, Jameson switched things up this year when enlisting the support of a close friend of each winner to personally surprise them in their home towns. Cameron was surprised when he saw his name and script written on the front of the cinema canopy as he walked past the iconic Fonda Theater in Los Angeles. Kat uncovered her announcement via a mobile van ad parked outside of the Sheffield train station. Jason was sitting on a terrace of a local coffee shop in Sydney when a Vespa zipped by carrying a mobile ad with his name on it. See how the winners were announced here.



Each winner was then amazed to learn that their scripts had been personally selected from the thousands of entries by Academy Award Winner Kevin Spacey, Dana Brunetti, President of Trigger Street Productions, and Oscar-nominated actress Maggie Gyllenhaal.



The winning scripts:

  • Cameron Thrower directed Beauty Mark, a story profiling 'Beauty' salesgirl Valarie Williams, who finds an unlikely friendship in one of her customers, Mark, who teaches her that beauty isn't always skin deep.
  • Kat Wood directed Home, a story of a homeless woman named Ruth, who lives alone in a tent near the beach. In the film, Ruth spends nearly a year in solitude, refusing to accept her charity worker's offer of a place in a shelter – too scared of being around strangers and the risk that it brings. But when her tent is destroyed, Ruth finally faces her fears and accepts her charity worker's help... discovering a gesture of kindness that will change her life forever. 
  • Jason Perini directed The New Empress, the story of Olive, a woman whose heart gets broken by Angus at her podiatrist's local Chinese restaurant. A pair of missing wallets prove to be the surprise catalyst for Olive to take the situation and her love life into her own hands.

Trigger Street Productions, along with Maggie Gyllenhaal, led a rigorous judging process of 20 shortlisted contestants' short scenes and directors' treatment from the 2,700 scripts submitted, before selecting the winners.



"The world of film can sometimes be a hard one to break in to and it is our privilege to be able to open the door to some genuinely exciting new talents through Jameson First Shot. The films that Cameron, Kat and Jason create will be the first steps in what we hope will be long, ground-breaking careers," said Spacey. "Our winners will no doubt be slightly overwhelmed the moment that they step on set, but the key will be that they embrace their fears and harness their artistic spirit to create something truly original," added Brunetti.

The Future of Whiskey Serving: Bartender by WineEmotion

imageBartender is the first automated whiskey dispensing system developed by WineEmotion USA in collaboration with Dan Matuszek, founder of Grane, the whiskey dispensary and craft cocktail concept piloted in Omaha, Nebraska.



IRVINE, Calif., March 10, 2016 -- WineEmotion, known for being a leader in wine dispensing and preservation technology, introduced its Bartender whiskey dispensing system in 2014 to serve the tremendous growth in the global whiskey market.  Responding to Dan Matuszek's proposal to expand into the whiskey category following the success of his wine-centric Brix, a wine bar, restaurant, and retail store concept located in Omaha, Nebraska, the innovative collaboration between WineEmotion and Grane began.



Bartender whiskey dispenser ensures the highest quality taste



Grane is a cozy after-work spot where you can enjoy a selection of 35 premium whiskeys with the use of a pre-loaded smart card that controls the Bartender pour size - .5oz, 1oz, or 1.5oz. What a great way to sample premium whiskeys at your own pace without having to commit to the purchase of an entire bottle! Grane also features more than 500 premium whiskeys behind the bar, 15 house-made craft cocktails, a generous selection of craft beers, and wine.



WineEmotion USA is planning to advance the Bartender concept nationally this year, giving whiskey lovers across the country an opportunity to be part of a revolutionary change that will shape the way whiskey is served in the future.



Innovative Technological Advances Boosts Bar Performance



As any bar or restaurant owner can attest, serving whiskey in a traditional manner by pouring straight from the bottle can increase waste and reduce efficiency. However, with Bartender's three-level pour technology, serving whiskey is made easy and efficient. The accurate variable pour control increases the performance of the bar by allowing the customer to take control of their whiskey purchase while the bartender behind the bar focuses on other aspects of tending bar that decrease wait time and increases the business' ROI.



Taste is a critical factor when enjoying whiskeys, just as it is with wine. With that in mind, Bartender ensures that the taste of each whiskey pour is of the highest quality. "The whiskey is pushed by food-grade argon gas, with the uptake from the bottom of the bottle; the headspace fills up with argon. The spout will drip two or  three drops, but cut-off is precise. There is very little to go wrong here," as stated by Lew Bryson of Whisky Advocate.



World Whiskey Day



On May 21st, Grane will hold a special event for World Whiskey Day, a day where whiskey lovers unite to celebrate "the water of life." As part of this sacred day for whiskey lovers Grane will run specials on all 35 whiskeys featured on theBartender whiskey dispensing system, all 500+ whiskeys behind the bar, and all whiskey-based cocktails.



For those who reside in Nebraska, mark your calendars! For those living outside of Nebraska, you may be the next to experience this revolutionary change in the way whiskey is enjoyed in a market near you soon.



More details will be announced through WineEmotion USA's website as well as their social media platforms as May 21st draws near.
