Jinoe on Q

It was last March 3 when Quennie received a call from a researcher for QTV. They found the website and inquired if there is a certain gadget that is specific for running. They want to feature gadgets for fitness in one of their episodes for their show – “The Beat”. Without second thoughts, Quennie referred the Garmin 405 watch and me to talk about it.

The first schedule to shoot was during the LSD last March 8. They wanted it when I am actually using the gadget. However, it was moved since they were asked to cover a FrancisM story instead. Too bad since I would be running with others who wears the same watch. Could have been fun.

Then, they opted to have it shot either in our boarding house or in our office. The boarding house is a mess, so it is a no-no. As for the office, I just asked permission from my boss and he is very ok with it and even wanted it shot during office hours. πŸ˜€

But the crew arrived past 6pm on March 11. With them is the segment host, Valerie Tan, who did the interview. She was with the segment producer and a camera man.

First time I saw how a certain interview is made. One cam, a big lamp, a big mic and some cords. Cool. And I thought it will be complicated.

I also did not complicate things. I just wore my usual “business” clothes. No make up of course. Brushed my teeth. Shaved a little and used my bare hands to fix my hair.

Some of my officemates were still around. Some of them really stayed to see the shot.

Valerie quickly rehearsed me with a set of questions. I did a little research beforehand to be sure I will be saying the right things. In a few minutes, the camera started rolling.

I was not looking at the camera so I didn’t feel conscious. There was one part where I stumbled on my words and had to cut. It was quick and simple. In 15 minutes or less, we are finished with the interview.

Off cam, Valerie and I had a little chat since she wanted to join races too. She asked about running form, shoes, and places to run. My officemates told me I should have got her number. Tsk tsk tsk. For a guy soon to be married, that is the last thing on my mind. πŸ˜›

The show was aired last night at 10pm. Since I announce it at the website, some of them really stayed up late for the show. Darn. And Natz, even took a video of it and share it on YouTube.

So for those who missed it, well and good. πŸ˜›
But anyway, here is the segment on Garmin 405.
