Interview with Bess Auer and Ben Reed for Blog Talk TV.

I was asked to be interviewed by Bess Auer and Ben Reed on Blog Talk TV Season 2. Filming was done at Concrete Lion Pictures Studio (910 Belle Ave #1120, Winter Springs, FL 32708). I arrived early to sketch Kristen Manieri's interview. She founded the Orlando Date Night Guide.

Blog Talk TV is broadcast on Cox 11 in Virgina. It airs weekly. The program official page Internet page. Blog Talk TV is broadcast to 1.5 million homes. The program is also finalizing contracts to be broadcast in additional markets in the Southeast, West Coast and the Mid West.

Prior to the show I was given specific questions that might be asked. The hosts try to keep the show “evergreen” because it could be syndicated at another time of year. That meant that my responses should not reference a specific season or time of year. The program also tries to minimize references to the show being filmed in Orlando. And since it’s shown on public television, I was advised avoid f@#king profanity and other inappropriate language.

The set used three cameras, a complete lightning set-up, lapel microphones and a “control booth”. The interview was filmed “live-to-tape” meaning they try to reduce the need for editing by shooting everything in one take. The show had a casual relaxed vibe. It was fun to talk about what I do every day and at the end of the interview I shared the sketch I had do me of the set.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
