WHAT IS FOOD QUEST?

Food Quest is the brain child (or better yet, the food baby) of 3 independent filmmakers who decided to leave the comfort of our 9-5 jobs to take a chance at doing what we truly love: creating content that we want to see in the hopes that you guys will also dig it.  

WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT?

The series is all about food and fun, and we have a few different types of episodes. In some episodes, we head out to unique eateries to highlight their awesome grub. Other episodes bring us to competitive eating competitions (I'm currently in training to demolish a 7.25 pound burrito). And we have crazy "quests" like delivering a gigantic 30" pizza on a bicycle built for two - complete with an obstacle course along the way.

WHO SHOULD WATCH FOOD QUEST?

Do you love food? Do you love fun? Do you love watching TV? Well, do we have a show for you!

WHERE CAN WE WATCH IT?

SUBSCRIBE to Food Quest on YouTube!

CAN WE SEE WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT?

TELL US ABOUT THE CREATORS!

Who? Us? Sure! Food Quest was created by the folks over at indi Film Project. We (Markus, Robert, and Chris) have been making our own content since 2015. It started off as a whirlwind romance and we've been spending basically every day together ever since. We were going to get those heart necklaces - you know the ones that have half a heart for each person to wear around their necks - but things got tricky, seeing as how there's three of us and all. Sure, we could buy 3 necklaces and each wear half, but that's a little too Mr. T for our taste.

I feel like I'm off topic, ok - back to the beginning. 

The three of us met on a sunny spring day back in 2015. Markus and Robert are brothers, so they technically knew each other for a little bit before they met Chris. We all signed up to volunteer on a short film that was being shot here in San Diego. After the shoot, we went out to enjoy crepes downtown, as all gentlemen do, and our bromance began. 

The last few years been all about living out our dream of making a living in the entertainment industry. We didn’t know where to start, and the three of us at iFP are all from out of town. We wanted to earn a living as freelance artists and absolutely hated our miserable, meaningless jobs, working years for other people, toiling away at menial tasks and wishing every single day that we were doing something we loved. So two years ago, we all left the employ of our shitty bosses to create things in our minds that come alive on your screens. It’s been a long road littered with too much pro bono work, failed attempts to get into the wedding video business, virtual reality filmmaking, real estate video tours, music videos, our first foray into the world of web series - For The Win - (scratching my head cause I know we’ve failed at a few more endeavors …) and yet every time we get to a dead end, we change direction and try something new. And we’re glad those other opportunities didn’t work out, because it led us to pursue Food Quest, which has been an idea of ours on the back burner for most of the time we've been in business. I guess something about being a starving artist led us to create a show about eating. (P.S. - GREAT way to scam free food from the restaurants we feature!)

There’s nothing especially glamorous about the life of a hard-working entrepreneur, especially when you’re among the select breed of weirdos who call ourselves, “filmmakers.” And unlike a field like dentistry, where it’s not as easy to show up in a blue smock and start pulling teeth, it seems we’ve found ourselves in a profession where you can easily call yourself a filmmaker, an actor, a director, a writer - and no one needs to see a degree, or even a body of work! Today, anyone with a phone and a laptop can be a filmmaker. We all have a business card and website, a Vimeo page, and a friend with a RED EPIC cinema camera.

Nevertheless, we’ve always felt the need to accomplish something big before we could call ourselves real artists. So the three of us all left other careers (“real jobs”) to join the army of filmmakers. Food Quest is us putting our money where our mouth is. We have spent years barely surviving off coffee and burritos, living on borrowed time and testing the patience of everyone else in our lives who thinks we're crazy for not giving up already. Now, as we sit here at our favorite coffee shop, we are insanely nervous and excited to release our baby into the cold, cold world.

Shout out to all our comrades in arms at their own coffee shops, scheming and working hard on something creative, something that makes you feel like you’re really alive - even if it’s only for a few hours at a time - where you can forget about all the stupid shit you have to do in order to pay the bills and make everyone else happy. We’re three fools who have put our lives on hold, betting everything we have that this is what it takes to call ourselves artists. And not starving artists. Working artists. That said, if you like the series, please support Food Quest so we can keep doing this for a long, long time. Thank you!

OOOOOO, WHAT ELSE HAVE YOU GUYS DONE?









TELL US ABOUT YOUR PRODUCTION COMPANY!

Formed in 2015, iFP is the culmination of two brothers from Idaho and the loud boisterous energy only a homegrown Jersey man could deliver. iFP began as a creative outlet and a way to make a little extra money on the side creating custom content for clients, later morphing into a lifestyle brand for the unemployed dreamer with an affection for burritos and lattes. These three men all share a passion for filmmaking and a strange sense of humor.

For Chris Pegut, iFP came at the perfect time in his life. After ten years in corporate hell (read: cubicles, PTO, conference calls, spot bonus awards, and a series of awful, awful bosses) Chris received amazing news! His position was being absorbed by his company’s team in Maryland (which is very far away from California) and he would be released early for good behavior. (But now he can say he “did a dime” in Corporate America). After stepping into the sunlight for the first time in over a decade, Chris started applying his demonic sales and marketing skills to iFP.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Markus and Robert continued to suffer the slings and arrows of working for The Man as their esteemed colleague Chris continually goaded them to, “just fucking quit.”


Markus Anderson - Taking A Selfie The Old-Fashioned Way

Then one day, after the brothers sat down to eat another big bowl of shit compliments of their lunatic boss and finally decided they’d had enough, they too walked away from the pseudo-comfort of an hourly wage and free weekends in order to finally live out their dreams. Every. Single. Day.
But where to begin? The guys tried to make a living shooting music videos for other artists, and much thought was put into shooting weddings and real estate videos to pay the rent. But, have you ever tried to work with people? Even just try talking to some of them … they’re the worst. “Sure, we love the idea of working for ourselves, that’s why we quit our jobs. But working for other people? Not a fan.” - All Three of Us, iFP


Robert Anderson - Considering A Swim to Hawaii

Ultimately, iFP has learned not to mince words: We want to work in the entertainment industry, earning a living doing what we love - creating original content. And we're not interested in writing-up another resume so someone can consider us for a “real job.”

iFP is proud to use Food Quest as their calling card. If you enjoy the show, please support us! Thank you!
