CNN: Parts Unknown: Anthony Bourdain: Naxos, Greece

For Greece, we picked a heavier G&E package, that would never let the camera land/become static, and helped create a drift through “chill life on the Greek islands”, home to a fiercely independent and proud population. Naxos is relatively secluded, steeped in deep small island tradition, and revolves around local food, wine, close friends and family. We shot an offshore dive to a sunken ship wreck, drank raki with the local governor and his in-laws, and sampled fresh fish right off the boat. While exploring the island, we had an amazing meal with politically outspoken musical group, The Stray Bitches, and traveled to the mountainous village of Apeiranthos where we shot Tony enjoying a traditional celebration in the town square. Sometimes we luck out with crews.. and in Greece, we did. We had the most amazing crew that kept our chill.movememnt.frog.hopping on 3 sets of Dana dollies/and a steadicam to keep the episode in constant movement. It was more lone-Tony magic with a location.appropriate tempo that helped create a Greek epic!
