Today on Behind the Bloom, I’m joined by my long-time friend and sound mixer, Jean-Yves Münch. He has been with me since I began filming way back in 2006…nearly 20 years. He is a Frenchman and thus was the perfect guest for our French Inspired “Life in Bloom” Episode – Fleur de la Vie.
Jean-Yves and I talk French inspiration and creation and also create beautiful bouquets of flowers, recalling fond memories. I hope you enjoy getting to know my French friend and learning more about his history, French influences and of course…flowers!
I’m proud to introduce you to my wonderful flower friend Jean-Yves Münch – as a French man – I want to know all about his personal and cultural feelings about flowers and share his amazing career as a sound guy with you- here on Life in Bloom. I want to share some of his amazing sound stories… and also ask him about how the French (and European) Culture differs from ours- when it comes to flowers!
Jean-Yves has been a part of my Video career- since 2006- when I started creating a Web-based TV Show- for ‘sliver casting’ (broadcasting niche content to a sliver of the population)… he was on the Very Production we did way back then… it’s nearly been 20 years… I know Jean-Yves enjoys working with me and my crew- and I think he also enjoys the opportunity we provide of flowers- for our crew following the filming schedule. hehehe!
I think it’s especially interesting to hear about how other people that grew up in different parts of the world- experienced flowers for the first time- or what their unique and individual memories of flowers may be… especially when it’s based in the City of Lights! Jean-Yves also helps me understand- (and better yet pronounce) the French saying
“Raison d´etre and I even share a story about my flower friend and famous White House Florist- Laura Dowling- and her flower advice to “Celebrate Beauty and Live Fully in the Present”… it’s a wonderful tradition with the french and flowers!
