Off The Beaten Path Part 3: The Washington Hotel

We finished up our week a week ago today at The Washington Hotel, a delightful resort built in 1857 and largely unchanged since then. We captured the owner, Charity Jackson, as she taught our host Brian Hamilton how to make their signature cocktail, the Washington Sleeper. I was really reluctant to shoot in a bar as the folks there can often get a little rowdy. But not only were patrons amazingly cooperative and helpful, some even got into the production process. The guy in the Red Sox shirt (far left) got into the spirit by counting us down to the action:

ACTION ITEM: When you’re working with people, and you really need their cooperation, don’t be afraid to include them in the action
