TV Interview of ThePictureShop for ABS-CBN

We were interviewed this past Feb 10 by the Bayan Productions team for their weekend show Kabuhayang Swak na Swak. The show focuses on entrepreneurs (generally small-scale) and unique business ideas. For this Valentine's Day, their team went out looking for couples (married or not) who have ventured into business together. Their researcher bumped into the 2006 article at Inquirer which featured ThePictureShop. They contacted us through Cols' cellphone which is listed at site, and in a matter of 2 days, they were here at our house for a live shoot!

The crew arrived around 10am. The 'director' started off with some basic Q&A's while the cameraman proceeded with setting up the location for the shoot. The shoot was done at our main garden. They positioned 2 seats with the pond as the background. The 'director', hidden from the camera's view, fielded the questions which Cols and I answered alternately.

From the garden, we proceeded to the den where we were asked to do mock photobook editing. Cols was seated while I was asked to stand beside her and comment on her work as if we were working. Of course, all the audio were edited out so we just mouthed whatever we wanted to say to make it appear like we're discussing something about the project on the screen.

We were wrapping up around 11am and Caitlin had to go to school. But since Ethan was around, we included him in some more shots to be used as background material. Here's the finished product which aired Feb 14, 2010 at 7:00am (our 3 minutes of fame!):
