Online exclusive: Behind the scenes of Lifestyle Advocates
03 September 2016
The all-new Lifestyle Advocates premieres Sunday, 18 September, featuring the movers and shakers from six of Asia’s most exciting cities.
While we await the premiere, here are some online exclusives through the lens — or through the screen rather — of Life Inspired producer, Dinesh Michan (hint: he’s the guy with the man-bun in the photos) who was in Thailand with the crew to film Lifestyle Advocates host, Utt Panichkul as he brings us around Bangkok to meet some of the city’s most famous and influential personalities.
Having produced a number of Life Inspired Original series including Tales of Time Baselworld, Jason Down Under and Stopover: Switzerland, Dinesh shows us a day in the life of a producer with an exclusive preview behind the scenes of the highly anticipated Lifestyle Advocates.
9am – Hello, Krung Thep
Landed in Bangkok. Weather is looking a tad gloomy.
12pm – Call time
It’s straight to the set. Setting up for our first scene with Utt and his guest, Janesuda.
It’s all smiles from these two.
4pm – Inception
Picture in a picture, in a picture.
4:30pm – Role reversal
And sometimes the tables are turned on set. That may or may not be an apprehensive stare by Kit as he watches Utt take over.
A favourable outcome? We’ll just have to wait for the final edits.
11am – Box HIIT
Not a bad start for day two with Ase Wang.
Morning planks. So glad we’re behind the lens right now.
12:10pm – The take down
Our camera guy getting the lowdown on the situation.
3:30pm – Fuel up
Two’s company with Cindy Bishop.
2pm – Boys and their toys
Strike a pose for the drone.
3:40pm – Raw footage
Meet guys behind the camera.
6:15pm – Form and function
Everyone in their element for the last shoot of the day.
12:40pm – The inside scoop
Scrutinising the footage on iPhone screens as Utt chats with the MD of Motif Bangkok.
And … It’s a wrap. Look alive, people!
