While the entertainment industry has paralyzed filming, the Kardashian dynasty managed to push through its program
The most popular family on world television is unstoppable, neither the confinement nor the world health crisis stopped the Kardashian clan in their intention to record season 18 of their followed reality show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians".
While Hollywood and the entire vast American entertainment industry has seen filming on virtually every one of its projects halted, the Kardashian dynasty managed to pull off its show, but how did they do it?
The initiative was taken by the clan matriarch, Kris Jenner, who proposed that each of her five daughters record herself, revealed Farnaz Farjam, executive producer of the reality show, who indicated that each member of the Kardashian clan received a weekly iPhone to register until 16 hours.
Farjam claimed that when the health crisis erupted, the team met to plan how to ensure the continuity of the project without exposing the Kardashian family or producers to the disease.
Initially, the Kardashian sisters recorded the shots and shared them with the producers in a virtual album, but to guarantee the quality of the images and the final product, it was decided to resort to a plan B.
"A cinematographer and a technician were hired, who donned a hazardous materials suit and set up lighted rooms in Kim's mansion (...) and Khloé's house," said Farjam.
"They installed phone-compatible tripods, which were carefully cleaned with antibacterial wipes to combat the transfer of germs. The family waited 24 hours before entering the rooms to avoid any possible contamination," Farjam added.
Of the sisters, the one that recorded the least was Kourtney Kardashian, who had a great fight already solved with her sister Kim and as a result she almost gave up the show. The new season is currently in post-production and will premiere on channel E! in August.
