Inception Media Group serves up a soul-satisfying journey told through an on-screen feast with Spinning Plates, that examines the drama and unique challenges faced each day by the owners of three very different restaurants.
It’s not just the food that makes a restaurant, but the people who fully invest themselves to bring them to life. Spinning Plates centers on three restaurants, each one unique not only in its cuisine but for the owners and struggles they each face on a personal level.
World-renowned Chef Grant Achatz strives for culinary excellence at his gourmet restaurant Alinea in Chicago, while privately battling a life-threatening condition. Family owned and operated for six generations, Breitbach’s Country Dining in rural Iowa remains standing only because of an unbreakable bond with the small town community. And a fledgling Mexican restaurant, La Cocina de Gabby, in Tucson, Ariz. struggles to stay afloat as its owners risk everything to provide for their young daughter.
Their unforgettable stories of family, legacy, passion and survival come together to reveal how meaningful food can be and the power it has on human connection while serving up a visual feast.
Just desserts as well: The documentary won Best Feature, at the 2013 Santa Barbara International Film Festival and Best Documentary, at the 2012 Austin Film Festival.

Inception Media Group proves it has balls by switching genres. What a hoot! Ben is forced by his future father-in-law to take a side job moonlighting as an exotic dancer in order to pay for his bride’s extravagant dream wedding in Balls to the Wall.
Ben (played by Joe Hursley), an I.T. drone at a boring corporation, wants to marry his gorgeous fiancée, Rachel (Jenna Dewan-Tatum), as soon as possible. She dreams of an extravagant wedding– with the hefty price tag of $50,000–for which her father, Jack (Christopher McDonald, has offered to pay.
Unbeknownst to all, including Rachel’s mother (Mimi Rogers, Jack has secretly gambled away their savings. But he has a plan to get the cash back in no time. Luring Ben into a male strip club, Jack helps him discover a hidden talent . . .
Now Ben must learn to balance his relationship with his new gig as a male stripper, which is really taking off!
