Search for Sriracha

Jenna ZbindenStaff Writer

ISU alumnus Griffin Hammond, along with a network of other ISU alumni and students, have completed a half-hour documentary called “Sriracha,” a film that took him across the world to discover the fascinating history and facts of the sauce.

The half-hour documentary is the result of 32 hours of film over the course of eight months. He traveled from California factories all the way to Thailand, the birth place of Sriracha.

Hammond discovered his love of film-making at ISU where he shot news stories for TV-10 and took classes from Professor John McHale. He later became the executive producer for the Google/YouTube channel, Indy Mogul, where he hosted and shared tips on film-making techniques.

The documentary can be purchased online for $5 or downloaded at
