It’s all about the doing. A lot of what we do on a day to day basis is planning what we do, whether that is writing plans, drafting scripts, doing emails, taking meetings and all sorts of other items. This week was a full week of actually doing the things we planned.
Monday & Tuesday, we returned to our fabulous producer Andy Nichol to record a couple more days of the Becoming the Perfect Gentleman audio course. It was another fun two days of full recording powered by tea, biscuits and Nic’s risotto. Things you don’t realise is that recording is best done standing up (voice and energy) and generally in your shoeless feet (sound and comfort). We have about another day to finish it all off but we are exceptionally proud of the work so far.
Then we immediately went into filming our PG series ‘A Gentleman Talks’. Our one to one interviews with Ladies & Gentlemen about their lives, work and experiences. It was a spectacular two days and our guests were amazing – we had Jazz legends, Cream Tea goddesses, marketing gurus and Cigar Royalty. We discussed bagpipes, belts, scones and walnut whips!
It was all shot at PG Towers, our secret location overlooking the city of London. A large thank you goes to our production team of Ebonie Allard & Peter Ferris Entertainment, without whom none of it would have been possible.
We are hugely looking forward to filming again and being able to show you the fruits of our labour!
The PG team also took the opportunity to also record the first of our PG podcasts, which includes our new section ‘A Gentleman Cooks’. We believe it is a skill that all gentleman should have. They are available now, we will endeavour to do them weekly.
Then the last two days of the week were a blur of cooking. In my past my family ran restaurants and I grew up in them. I learnt to cook at my mothers side from an early age. My mother had nearly 200 people to feed over 2 days, so my wife, mother and myself bustled and hustled our way to another culinary success, we believe by empty trays of food by the end of each evening.
By Sunday, I was exhausted and collapsed into a weary heap. Despite my tiredness I was exceptionally happy and proud of a week of actually doing things.
Till next week,
