Episode 39 is in the can…
Time for my first blog post as a member of the My Denmark TV team.
We finished filming episode #39 yesterday – my first complete episode as co-host – and now it’s on the editing table. I’m not quite sure why I suggested putting street interviews into the script of one of my first episodes – there are easier segments to film then this sort of thing, as it’s a hell of a challenge approaching people ‘cold’ and asking them not only to spare a minute to answer a couple questions, but to do so on camera. Soliciting interviewees in this way is definitely something that takes me – as it probably would most people – well out of their natural comfort zone. At the same time it is challenging and worthwhile, and Vladimir, in his role as producer and cameraman, kept us pumped for the task. As you might imagine, some people literally run the opposite direction when you approach them – even before you can even get more than a couple words out, but it feels great to eventually succeed – which we did.
We kept it pretty simple and mainstream this time, but there’s loads of useful everyday tips for where to shop for clothes in Denmark – and we’ll of course include all the relevant links below the episode. In the future I hope we can dig into some of the more independent shops, of which there are some great ones around Copenhagen and elsewhere – for example, in Nørrebro and Vesterbro especially.
Hope you enjoy the episode when it comes out on Wednesday!
