We’ve been keeping ourselves busy over the past few weeks, planning, producing, shooting, and editing a new video for one of our favourite regional street food traders: Bubble&.
Bubble& first popped up on our radar at the Love Southsea Market, and they quickly became a firm favourite for lunch. Years later, they came to us and asked for a video to support their crowdfunding project. We jumped at the opportunity — mainly for the free food we’d get during filming, of course.
Founders Rupert Smith, who has been a chef for over 25 years, and Marita Leitz, whose background is in business development and sales, started Bubble& with the aim of revolutionising a British classic and putting it back on the menu.
They’ve been serving gourmet bubble and squeaks for the past two-and-a-half years at the most well-regarded street markets and festivals in the UK. “It’s now time for the next chapter,” Marita says. And that next chapter is a restaurant in Southsea, opening in 2017.
The purpose of the video we created for Bubble& was to promote their crowdfunding campaign — they’re looking to curate £100,000 via Crowdcube to get their restaurant concept of the skills, starting out with a debut eatery here in Southsea.
We shot in a range of locations for this video: the Bubble& kitchen in Petersfield, the Love Southsea Market in Palmerston Road, the Shepherds Markets around London, Southsea Beach, Old Portsmouth, the Camber, the My Dog Sighs mural in Fratton (on the side of the Wetherspoon pub), along the stretch of independent eateries in Osborne Road, etc.
Through the video, we promoted Bubble& and its founders, Portsmouth as a prime place for the starting point of a revolutionary new eatery franchise, and the crowdfunding campaign.
The project got us thinking about the diversity of food traders at the Love Southsea Markets, so to finish, here are some highlights for must-eats at next weekend’s market, on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd April.
