Lights, Camera…KalofagasOct 17th, 2008 | By Peter Minakis | Category: Kalofagas Video, MISC
Here it is, the clip you’ve been waiting for…a snippet of the filming I did this past summer while in Athens, Greece.
I spent the whole day filming which began with gathering some footage at Athens’ Varvakeios market, followed by a day of having myself filmed while preparing three dishes and having myself introduce two other chefs with two of their dishes.
We concluded the day with some footage in and around the hotel where we filmed and a send-off on the hotel’s rooftop overlooking Athens.
I may seem repetitive but I would like to thank Dimitri Vorris, the producer/writer/director who went out on a limb to produce this pilot, Athinagoras and Christos – the two chefs who filmed with me on that day and the Fresh Design Hotel in Athens.
This day was fun, a learning experience and it gave me a whole new respect for those food personalities who work hard to make a TV show. Just think about it…those food celebs are spending 12 hours a day to make a 30 minute program for you, the viewer.
The footage from this filming was never meant for sale as a TV show but to serve as a “pilot” or promotional piece to sell the idea of “Kalofagas” for TV media.
Myself and some friends are currently sending DVD copies and clips to people who we think such a concept could be of interest to.
There are two other dishes prepared for me, Dimitri can surely edit them and send them to me and with your support and encouragement…more clips will arrive here in no time at all!
Sit back, enjoy and please offer your comments and feedback in the comments section below. This was a learning experience for myself and I along with Dimitri would like to hear what you have to say.
