Spring is in the air… and I’m hosting yet another travel TV show! This time, it’s for Belgium’s national broadcast station, VRT (Vlaamse Radio en Televisieomroep). The documentary is about cherry blossom season in Tokyo: sakura culture, festivities and fun. Can’t wait!

Once again, my First Mate Naomi will be making arrangements for the TV shoot. (She took most of the photos in this post). Our company, La Carmina & The Pirates, offers “fixing” services to film and TV companies. We take care of location scouting, translation, scheduling and more. If you’re coming to Tokyo, Japan and want to hire us, come check out our website.

Last fall, NRK (Norway TV) hired us for a shoot in Tokyo about Japanese love and host clubs. One of the stars is Ari Behn, the Prince of Norway! The other is famous photographer Per Heimly, who shot album covers for black metal band Dimmu Borgir. It quite surreal, running around Tokyo with this pair.

Ari and Per were great to work with. They’re interested in the people and culture around them, and always up for having fun.

So far, I’ve worked with TV shows from Australia, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, France, USA, Canada — and now, Belgium. I feel fortunate I am able to do TV hosting. However, I feel I’ve only gotten started — there’s so much more I’ve yet to accomplish!

  • Magnales

    Hmmm, I thought NRK was somehow free to watch.. But Ari og Per isn’t. Why? Do they need to protect their royalty or something???

    I look forward for the Belgian show, because my TV does broadcast VRT (yay).

    What is the name of the show? I know VRT has some realy good travelshows.

    • Hm, not sure… There was a link to the video of the episode, but I wasn’t able to watch it. Oh well, the DVD will come soon!
      Not sure what the name of the VRT show is. It’s a travel series about festivals worldwide.

      NRK is only free with Norwegian ip address (Funded by the people like BBC)
