Filming for TV

Whenever someone contacts us regarding the boys clip we need to sign a contract saying we will not talk about the particular show/news story/newspaper article so the pictures have also been smudged a little to hide any logos and crew.

I guess we will never get over the novelty that people are actually that interested in the boys and the story of the clip that they want to come and talk to us and film. I also think that is a good thing.

I thought I would share with you a couple of pictures showing what it is like.

It is amazing how long the setup takes and how much of an intrusioin into our lives the whole process is. I am not complaining about that, it is just the way it works out. Luckily the people who come to see us are always lovely to work with and we all enjoy it, this time around they were jumping oin the trampoline with the boys and throwing freebies in the back garden . I probably would not say that if it happened too often, but that is another reason I turn down more than we do.

One of the best things about it is we get some lovely footage of the boys, taken with professional kit and people which will be with us forever.

You probably did spot it but the in case you didn't the chair the boys are in is the THE Chair they are in for the original clip.


  1. They are so cute!! When will the show come on?

  2. Can't wait to see the results !!

  3. I'm not sure if you know of a show we have in the U.S. called "Jon & Kate Plus 8". You folks seem more down-to-earth than that family, but still...the whole family is in pieces now. Granted, that was the result of four seasons of filming, but if you ever catch the show, consider it a lesson of what NOT to do while filming a show about your family.
    All in all though- I wish you five the best.

  4. From one mom of kids who in front of professional cameras to another mom. I HATE cameras in our home. I agreed to do it once and won't ever allow it again. The disruption, (the mess), it was stressful. I'll take them to set, auditions but no reality, no at home filming. (unless it us for personal use only..)....Your little guys are too cute for words. I do wish you and your family all the best.
