The latest episode of Meta Makeover is now available on the Meta Makeover website at SLCN – and can also be downloaded free of charge from iTunes.
This was a fun programme to make but not, it must be confessed, wholly free of difficulties!
We chose to film St Patrick’s Day in Dublin … a very, very popular destination – so much so that it rapidly became clear that our original plan (to film the main interviews with Saffia in the Arlington Hotel on the banks of the Liffey, while Elrik interviewed people outside the perenially popular Blarney Stone pub) was untanable due to the horrendous lag – resulting in the fact that everyone apart from Elrik appeared to be clad in grey rather than green!
But the hugely helpful Dubliners helped us relocate to the quieter sims of Dublin2 – Shamrogue Island and Dublin3. On Dublin 2, in the shadow of the giraffe only zoo (and you’ll find out why in the special viral video, discussed in the programme), Saffia interviews Ham Rambler, the Owner of Dublin and Emmie Fairymeadow, the Operations Manager. And in Dublin 3, Elrik Merlin talks to Sitearm Madonna about the parades, the celebrations and the art exhibition.
“All the Dublin team were wonderful,” says Saffia, “giving up so much time to help us on their busiest day. And Ham Rambler was great- he came to join us via a very dodgy connection in a Brazilian hotel!”
