    Hi Christopher,

    I’m Minnie and I work in the content team at NOWNESS.

    I just watched the trailer for ‘Barista,’ and it looks amazing, congratulations!

    I was wondering whether you had any footage/screeners that we could have a look at to potentially feature on our site?

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    I look forward to hearing back from you!

    All the Best,
