Cayman on TV

Postby KarenS » Fri Apr 14, 2006 7:53 am

According to Cayman Net News: "The Cayman Islands is becoming ever popular as a location to shoot TV shows.

In the next couple of months at least four different crews from around the world will descend on Grand Cayman to film a variety of shows from sports to adventure to quiz programmes.

In fact, the Department of Tourism and producers of one such programme, Awesome Adventures, a US nationally–syndicated TV show, are looking for two Caymanian teenagers to serve as on–air hosts for an upcoming episode. The show will be filming 12 –15 May on Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.

“The episode will feature Awesome Adventures host Mystro Clark and two young Caymanians exploring fun and educational activities in the Cayman Islands including, Batabano, Stingray City, the Blue Iguana Conservation Programme, Atlantis Submarines, nature hiking on Cayman Brac and fishing on Little Cayman,” said a press release from DoT.

Holiday Quiz is a new Irish TV series scheduled for transmission prime time on a Sunday evening as a family show. Later this month three crew, a producer and the presenter will visit to film here.

The sponsoring destination receives almost 30 minutes of destination coverage, which is edited into numerous segments to portray the variety of culture attractions and tours on offer.

The show offers viewers the chance to win a vacation to the featured country by simply texting in the correct answers to some multiple choice questions about the destination.
With the Irish national five–year savings plan maturing around May this year, a huge population will receive considerable financial windfall savings. The resultant 1/2 hour national TV coverage at around the same time of the year positions the Cayman Islands nicely in the minds of those looking to spend that cash on a special holiday.

Top skater Mike Vallely is also to film his TV show – Drive – at Black Pearl Skate and Surf Park in Grand Harbour. The programme is available in 15 million homes in the US on Fuel TV. He visits 18 – 23 April.

Drive goes on the road with the pro–skater as he explores the people, places, and issues defining skateboarding and youth culture today.

The Cayman Islands International fishing tournament will be filmed for terrestrial German channel N24’s Backstage programme.

This will feature reportage on the actual event and back stage coverage.

If you are interested in learning more about the Awesome Adventures show, please contact Jo Gammage at the Department of Tourism at 949–0623 or jgammage@caymanislands.ky."
