MyDenmarkTV update

We finished filming episode #39 of My Denmark TV yesterday - my first complete episode as co-host - and now it's on the editing table. 

I'm not quite sure why I suggested putting street interviews into the script of one of my first episodes - there are easier segments to film then this sort of thing, as it's a hell of a challenge approaching people 'cold' and asking them not only to spare a minute to answer a couple questions, but to do so on camera. We filmed at Fisketorv Shopping Center, which is hardly my favourite place to be, to put it mildly. 

The filming included asking passers-by some simple fashion questions, such as where they like to shop for clothes, and I can tell you that soliciting interviewees in this way is definitely something that takes me - as it probably would most people - well out of their natural comfort zone. But it is challenging and worthwhile. As you might imagine, some people literally run the opposite direction when you approach them - even before you can even get more than a couple words out, but it feels great to eventually succeed - which we did. :-)

We kept it pretty simple and mainstream this time, but there's a bunch of useful everyday tips for where to shop for clothes in Denmark - and we'll of course include all the relevant links below the episode. Hopefully in the future we'll be able to dig into more of the independent shops, such as the ones in Vesterbro and Nørrebro.

Hope you enjoy the episode when it comes out this Wednesday on the MyDenmarkTV site - and I'll be putting it up here as well.
