Subject: INTERVIEW FOR FRENCH TV CHANNEL "VOYAGE" / DOCUMENTARY FILMS SERIES "BIG CITY LIFE".
Que tal a equipe francesa? Cameraman Noam Roubah; a jornalista Joana Calmon; Pierre-Paul Puljiz, Producteur Associé e Vic Demayo, Producteur et Direction Générale. E eu, é claro!
No dia 22 de Novembro de 2006 recebi um e-mail de Sarah Vavasseur da EVA Productions me convidando para ser entrevistada pelo canal de viagens chiques da França, VOYAGE (assistido por 8 milhões de assinantes), para a série de reportagens “Big City Life”. Este programa apresenta os Interiores residenciais de quatro personalidades das principais cidades mundiais como Paris, Londres, Nova York, Tóquio, Los Angeles, Bruxelas, Moscou, Roma e Marrakech. Lógico que topei! (E, com orgulho, soube no dia da filmagem que uma outra personalidade seria o Ivo Pitanguy. Nada mal, hein?)
Agora, aqui para os bastidores, takes da filmagem na casa no dia 24 de janeiro de 2007.
Vejam mais fotos do living da casa.
Conheçam também a cozinha.
Entrando no family room.
Vejam outros ângulos e detalhes do family room.
Para terminar, a varanda da piscina.
Abaixo, reproduzo o convite:
