Today we got to feature in an episode of Prank Patrol Down Under! The Australian version of the original Prank Patrol.
Wow, it was such a great experience! Still can't believe we're going to be in an episode of a TV show!
A really massive Thank You to Scott Tweedie (Scotty), Hannah, Verity, and of course to Bettina and the entire ABC3 production team! Everyone was fantastic and we all had such a great experience. It was the first time we got involved in a production like this, with a great director, epic cameras, lighting and sound crew. I hope we did alright on screen! It's kinda scary thinking about what the episode is going to look like, but exciting at the same time!
We featured in a little segment where they meet us and we teach Hannah and Verity some simple magic tricks they can perform in tomorrow's show. The girls were really switched on and picked it all up really quick. We all have our fingers crossed that it works out great tomorrow!
It would've been great if we could've done a few more things there, but time was limited and there was a lot of footage the team needed to shoot. A bit of a shame, but oh well! I mean, how cool would it have been if we could teach Scotty something too! Haha! Maybe we'll be able to meet up with the team again sometime!
Speaking of Scotty, that guy has so much energy its amazing! He can re-shoot the same segment over and over again and keep up the high energy every take. It is so tiring shooting for hours on end, but he really pulls it off well. Props to him!
To be honest, before we got invited to be a part of the show, I didn't actually know about Prank Patrol. Shows how much I know about children's TV..! It turns out that Prank Patrol is actually a top rated show on ABC3, and after looking it up, it is really amusing!
The strangest part is probably when I discovered a number of my friends actually watch the show occasionally! I can only imagine how bizarre it would be if they are watching a random episode, and it happens to be the one that we feature in! Hahaha, but in all seriousness, it is great to be able to be a part of a children's TV show to provide entertainment for so many children all over the world and give them a good laugh!
Go team! Keep an eye on the upcoming episodes, because Encyclopedia Of Magic has officially been a part of Prank Patrol! Woo! xD
I am very curious to know whether anyone here has watched Prank Patrol or Prank Patrol Down Under and what your thoughts are?
