Bratley Price – The producer of “Good Morning America” said that the Footages of Son Doong cave will knock-out American Audience immediately.
In the evening 5-13-2015, two Tuoi Tre Newspaper’s reporters followed ABC Television Company filming “Good Morning America” in En Cave (a cave close to Son Doong cave) sent this report.
Bratley Price – The producer of “Good Morning America” said that the Footages of Son Doong cave will knock-out American Audiences immediately. He said after had finished the last scenes in Son Doong cave.
Why did they choose En Cave?
Inside the En Cave, Maria Stefanopoulos – The Chief Producer, Member of the Programme “Good Morning America” explained why she didn’t choose Marble Cathedral of Patagonia, Chile for her show. She Said: “I almost picked up Marble Cathedral for my scenario, but after seeing pictures and clips taken by flycam inside Son Doong cave (by Ryan Deebooth introduced on TTO), I changed my mind. Our channel performs videos and films depending on flycam and with a very beautiful sights in Son Doong Cave, we will make it more imposing and wonderful than the other cave in Chile.”
However, All of the scenes and clips was made in En cave, not Son Doong cave. Why?
Mr. Nguyen Chau A – The CEO of Adventure and Travelling Company, who specializes making tours to the Son Doong Cave, En Cave, Tu Lan Cave in Quang Binh, a partner in this filming project of ABC in Vietnam explains: After carried out a survey in the middle of April, 2015. The ABC Television Company wanted to film inside Son Doong cave because of its very beautiful scenes. But with the number of 120 people and a half ton of devices, the Son Doong can not carry all of them.
The En Cave, with a very suitable structure ( Its dome height is about 20 floors building and its width is about 100 meters. The space inside the cave can contain 2 football stadiums) is appropriate with them.
“The first Knock-Out”
In May 9, after landing on En Cave, the ABC team had repaired their luggage on the way to the Son Doong Cave with Mr. Bratley Price, MC Ginger Zee, 3 cameramen – 2 of them using flycam. Following them were 3 authorities of British Caving Association (there had Mr and Mrs. Howard Limbert, they were offered Labour Order, Third Class by the State) and 30 carrier in a tour lasting 3 days and 2 nights. Cameras and 2 flycams had being filmed Howard Limbert walks, introduced every characteristics of the cave for the Audience of ABC Channel.
Standing alone on the top of the highest rock in Doline 1, MC Ginger Zee spread out his arms and shouted out to the flycam above his head: “Look at this! I can’t believe that I can see all of this fascinating and charming sights in right here: Son Doong Cave. This moment makes me breathless. And I realize that I haven’t finished a half of the journey yet.” All of 3 cameras concentrated the MC when 1 flycam moving around her, the other flycam was capturing the scenes from the depth of the cave passing the MC to the forest outside the cave. The last one filmed the whole scenery.
After the footage, Mr. Bratley Price, who was not able to restrain his feeling, said that it would be an amazing thing that he’d ever made. Then he talked to us: “This scene will absolutely knock-out American Audience immediately!”
In the last night at Doline 2, after dinner, Price worked constantly in 4 hours to choose the best scenes after 2 days in Son Doong Cave. Then he asked a carrier to bring him to the En Cave, where his team will begin to go back to their headquarters in New York.
“I must preview many times some scenes because of their beautiful and imposing. Only flycam can describe it truthfully. The Cave is awesome. We are the luckiest guys who were be able to film and contemplate the beauty of the Cave” – he shared.
