FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (LOS ANGELES, CA): AGH TELEVISION RELEASES "THE WINDOW SEAT" FREE SERIES OF BEHIND THE SCENES TOUR FOOTAGE, WHICH WILL ONLY BE POSTED ON THE AGH TELEVISION NEWS SITE!
FROM AGH TV CREATOR AND DIRECTOR CHAD CALEK: We always get questions as to what life is like on the road, which makes total sense, as we're all very aware of how special it is to get the chance to travel the world and meet the people who allow us to have the career that we have. It sounds cliche' to say, but it's absolutely true that without fans and supporters, nothing that we do would be possible. With that in mind, my business partner Thomas and I spend long hours talking about news and exciting ways that we can share our lives behond the documentaries that we make, as social media is no longer something that fans and supporters "may" check out when they have time. It's become an immediate "go to" component of any new product, brand or venture.
At some point in the next year, the third recreation of AGH TELEVISION will take place, which will include many new ways in which we'll be opening up our world to the general public, in which one of those ways will be through the sharing or more and more footage from "behind the scenes" of our tours, as each tour truly is an adventure.
Posted below is EPISODE 1 of a "clips series" concept that I've had for a long time called "THE WINDOW SEAT", which is the sharing of "personal" moments that we have on the road, in which each episode will be uncensored. Many artists share what it's like when they encounter fanfare, when they do radio interviews or highlights of their live events. I'm not saying that we'll never show those sorts of moments, but the primary purpose of THE WINDOW SEAT is NOT to make us look as cool as we possibly can, as to be honest... that shit is pure formula, which I can't stand.
The purpose of THE WINDOW SEAT is to show you what "real life" is like one the road. I'm talking about the funny and exciting moments that we all share, as well as the arguments that we have. You'll see what it's like to snorkle the Great Barrier Reef or to eat Kangaroo for the first time. And what is it like to navigate french-speaking Montreal when only one guy on the bus speaks French (me)? And how do salt-based U.S. "Ketchup" lovers like myself cope with the sugar-based "Tomato Sauce" of Quebec or Sydney? And what music do we take on the road? What movies do we watch? What are our favorite things to do on days off? Through THE WINDOW SEAT, you'll not only learn the answers to these questions by watching short film clips our tours, but at the same time, we'll also show you what it's like to tour with a broken fibula and have to smile through pain. You'll see what it's like when you get a phone call that a family member just passed away, just before going on a live radio show five minutes later to discuss "ghosts". We'll show you the "tricks of the trade" at airports that we've all learned from traveling, the favorite places we like to stop while on tour, what it's like to call a bunk on a tour bus your "home", or what it's like when simple things in life gain a massive level of importantance, such as figuring our where in the fuck the closest laundy mat is LOL!
Life on the road is many things... but what it's not, in any capacity, is NORMAL.
And at the same time, it's a true blessing, as I couldn't imagine doing anything else for a living, as once you've seen life on the road... you've seen too much to ever return to a live of normalcy.
My hope and goals for THE WINDOW SEAT, is that over time, these many small clips will create an incredibly interesting "big picture".
Also, because our hope is that more and more people will visit our www.aghtelevision.com website on a regular basis (as it houses more info about us and what we do than any other site on the web), for right now, THE WINDOW SEAT will ONLY be embaded on our AGH NEWS section of www.aghtelevision.com This way, once viewers are done watching THE WINDOW SEAT, they can easily be updated on the latest news that we've shared with the world.
How often will these episodes be edited and made available? Right now, the honest answer is as often as I can make them in between editing my feature films, as I have a TRUCK LOAD of editing to do. But Thomas, Justin and I have been discussing (and looking) for the right person to bring on for some time now, in which this person's ONLY job will be social media video creation, postings and updates. So in the future, I would like to see episodes to THE WINDOW SEAT being produced and released weekly (if we are not on tour) and daily (if we are on tour). But for now, the answer is "as quickly as I can edit and release them".
With that being the case, posted below, enjoy EPISODE 1 of THE WINDOW SEAT, which is some fun footage from our drive from Brisbane, Australia, to Beenleigh, Australia, in order to host our second to last tour date on the DARKNESS DOWN UNDER tour. If you like what you see, then let me know! If there's "more" of something you want to see, let me know that as well, as this is for all of you!
And with that... enjoy your weekend, my friends.
Much love and all the best.
