Sean Castelino is a serial entrepreneur, gourmand, storyteller, and writer who serves as the Executive Producer of Fook Fast Food a fledgling Youtube Channel. He along with Creative Producer Aleem Miller and his videography team at Royce Visuals blend their unique talents to shed insight into regional foods, culture and history through compelling video. Below is a short snippet about who they are.
There is something that beckons the food connoisseur/gourmet/foodie or whatever you want to call him/her towards the unfamiliar. This compulsion to try new dishes and experience cultures for the first time through food is thrilling which in turn perpetuates this exploratory mindset. This has been a part of Sean’s disposition for as long as he can remember.
Born in Canada to parents who emigrated from India, and growing up in Toronto (and the GTA) he has been exposed to some of the most eclectic mixes of cultures and cuisines anywhere on the planet. This has helped shape his worldview along with having travelled to over 25 countries.
After graduating from Ryerson University and getting his Bachelor of Commerce degree, he has worked multiple corporate jobs in Commercial Sales while intermittently starting multiple businesses in various industries like Music, Aviation and Real Estate. In 2021, he left corporate life and dedicated himself full-time to be involved in the production of food related video when he noticed the following:
Ironically, while humans residing in big cities are enjoying unprecedented access to large offerings of international goods, grocery stores and restaurants due to globalization there is still a dearth of knowledge on regional foods by the general populace. Simultaneously, the last decades have also seen the centralization of power and vertical integration within the food supply chain by large multinational corporations which have diluted and deteriorated the quality of food for the masses.
Out of this sordid state of affairs the Fookfastfood brand was born and is our way of giving the middle finger to all forms of the establishment which are solely in the food business to mine profits.
Not to rebel for the sake of rebelling, the well intended meaning of this show is to go on a journey together of learning some of the fundamentals that define regional cuisines so that you the discerning food lover can recreate or know how to purchase with confidence. We also hope to inspire compassion for the communities creating this food, because we believe that is a core ingredient missing in this violent world.
The fookfastfood team invite you to join them on what we plan to be an insightful, entertaining affair.
Creating visually engaging story driven content was always Aleem’s goal and motivation when picking up a camera. From starting the journey of visual storytelling over 10 years ago, Aleem and the team continue to find new ways of bringing someone's vision to life.
He established a video production company known as Roycevisuals to help bring that passion of storytelling to the next level. With the grace of luck, great work ethic, and the consistency of producing high quality videos the Royce Visual team was able to work with some leading companies in various industries. One industry however has always been one of their favourites to capture; the food industry.
From a young age after being inspired by such food network hosts like Jamie Oliver, Alton Brown, Anthony Bourdain, Guy Fieri and David Chang food content has always been something of a love affair. Capturing food and the stories behind it has never gotten old. The passion the chefs have for their culture and food combined with the electrifying energy of being in the kitchen is an intoxicating mix.
Time and time again, the more they captured food content, the deeper their love and appreciation for this industry grew.
