Russian Pool in Apartment Viral Video Interview
Some projects are weeks if not months of research and pre-production, but sometimes we get a call out of the blue and a few days later we are heading on another filming adventure.
For example we were contacted by the makers of the British TV show RudeTube, a fast paced count down of top 50 funny and bizarre viral videos on the net. It is hosted by Alex Zane and is shown on Channel 4/E4 in the UK.
Our task was to get an interview with the Russian youtuber Вечный (Vichnie) AKA Vladimir who turned his kitchen into a swimming pool, filmed it and put it on his youtube channel. A video that has almost 3 million views at the time of this post.
So we jumped in the car and headed to Tver, 162km from Moscow to film the story. In fact we filmed Вечный in the very kitchen where this viral video was originally shot. He spoke about how he got the idea and how they prepared the kitchen with plastic sheeting before flooding it.
It was a long but very enjoyable day, we shot what was needed and the next day the footage was on a hard drive heading to London by courier.
The episode of Rude Tube featuring Вечный will be shown on Channel 4/E4 sometime in 2017.
Here is Vladimir’s original video (Contains some strong language)
