Description

The Important Videoshow is a neverending web docuseries. It features the same group of people, interviewed every 10 years, answering one and the same straight-up question: “What is important?” The "first chapter" of the show aired between 2011 and 2014 and totaled 83 episodes, organised in 5 seasons. 83 people from Romania, USA, The Netherlands, Finland, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Ireland, UK, France, Australia, Denmark, Poland,Lithuania, Hungary, Germany, Iceland, India and Sweden. Ranging from 14 to 91 years old.

The show’s second chapter restarted in 2021, featuring the exact same people, filmed ten years away from their previous appearence. They are presented with a slightly different question: “what is (still) important?” 

The question is strenghened by the fact that at the end of the show’s first part, in 2015, all the interviews have been made unavailable from the internet, in an effort to distance both the participants from their younger selfs and their previous answers. The second chapter episodes include the participants’ reaction to the first viewing of their old interview in 10 years. 

 

Making of

The making of the show began in the late spring of 2011. The first season was filmed entirely in Romania, the second one in Spain. The third one back in Romania, while the fourth one in Denmark and France. The grand finale, the fifth one, was shot entirely in India between November 2013 and April 2014.

Many good people contributed to its making. Alex Bălă scored the wonderful music. Márton Borzák and Mélody Boulissière created graphics and logos, while Bertan Cómert and Gourab Ganguli joined as associate producers.

Today the team features two new people, Monica Jitariuc - associate producer , and Alexandru Rotariu - editor.
