Making of The Video… (Video)

Here is a special behind the scenes look at our Magic Vine Tincture Formula Video.


It’s like the special director’s cut :)

Big ups to Sean for shooting this with his awesome camera and skills and to the entire production team! (Sean also shot my Oprah Audition Video below AND the My Kombucha Music Video!) – yes. Sean is The man!


PS: I was not allowed to say anything while it was going on.. But I Actually Got A Call Back For It!  That’s right, building the best kombucha community ever and discovering the most amazing Jiaogulan from the source isn’t the only thing I do!!

PPS: See You Guys Tomorrow!  It Will Be Epic.

We have been working on the Stretching and Kvetching Promo for a VERY long time… the fact that it was completed last night is a big milestone for me and all the people that have contributed. It is also amazing that both Jiaogulan launches have coincided with these two videos (the Oprah one above and the promo below)… so it is eithe ra coincidence… or I need to do more launches to get my but in gear for all the other things I like to do in life!

Anyways, I realize that this does not seem to have anything to do with Jiaogulan, so feel free not to watch these videos. I did however wanted to show, in case you were in any doubt, that I am a real person that truly believes and uses the stuff I promote.

As I am sure you know already, the internet can sometimes be a cold and disheartening place and I THANK YOU for placing your trust in me and my products.

See Ya Tomorrow!

is the same steps in making this tea the same as making kombucha?

admin May 10, 2010 at 9:35 am

yes and no.. jiaogulan CAN be used in place or in partly place of regular tea to brew kombucha, there is one or two things to be mindful of, that we show you on the included video that you get!!

I’m showing my grandson this video, it says a lot. We live as we’re always 30 years of age in our minds, it’s just at times our bodies rebel.

What a great idea! I never knew my grandparents but heard wonderful stories about them. It is sad to go to a nursing home and see all the FORGOTTEN people. So people let’s join with Dave and see if we all together can make a difference! Take a bit of your time and share!

It is sooooooo true! When you can see through someone else’s perspective and truly value there experiences and seeing that the “Source of Life” flowing through them is also flowing through you, there is no other word than “JOY” to describe it!!! Loving all that you are Dave!!!

I like it! It’s actually a part of my contract to connect with my ancestors, living physically and otherwise… to get to know them, to learn their lessons and receive their wisdom and guidance. And here I go to visit you thinking about Kombucha, and your video is putting me back on track. Thanks!

I have been making and drinking kombucha for about the last 30 years. I was very happy when our daughter gave us a set of your beautiful crock for Christmas. I am 79 year old. I would like to know more in addition to the first 2 two dvds I received with my set. I do get lost on your website though. Please guide me to more information like that contained on your dvds. thanks very much!

I see a lot of Weird Al Yankovic in you. I am certain that he would make a guest appearance if you contact his agent. It would be great to see you in a video shoot with him!

Hey Dave–touching base with you again. So glad to see you sharing your talents and love in other places than the internet. Seniors just love “young” ones that take the time to enhance their world. Kudos to you!! :-) (I am now officially a “senior”, HA!! I still feel 40 thanks to living and fermented food. Go Kombucha!! :-) )
