Lights, Camera, Action - Popup!

Well what a start to the week we had with our appearance on TV3's Ireland:AM. We arrived at TV3's studio's around 7am a bit nervous but really excited about how it would go. The staff there were great and got us coffee and donuts while we waited. We filmed the piece outdoors under a great big canopy that protected us from the rain that had started to come down. We set up our table (thanks Mar!) and had some time to chat to the other businesses that were being featured - Louise Stokes from Loulerie with her fabulous sparkly jewelery and Ciarán and Abdul from Supernemo's Biological Insectacide.
Laura Woods was amazing and put everyone at ease with a quick run through and she was genuinely interested in all the businesses - even arguing with the floor manager for extra time for the business slot! The camea's went live around 8:35 and we were on. It felt like we were waiting nervously for ages for Laura to get to us when she was talking to the Supernemo guys but when she did chat to us it flew by in an instant! I wasn't too conscious of the camera when we were on because Steve was doing some great modeling and the camera was on him for a good bit. It was great just to chat to Laura and she was really enthusiastic about MotionFox and she especially liked the colours we had!
Louise from Loulerie is a total pro in front of the camera and Laura was obviously really in to it all - we had nothing like the Golden Globe awards to be dropping in our slot so we gave Lou a good slagging about that afterwards. Great to see Loulerie stocking some up and coming Irish designers as well.
After all that we packed up and headed on home. It was an amazing experience being on TV and one we hope to repeat in the future! Click here to see us on TV3 - it's about 2 minutes in to the video - enjoy!
Since then the reaction has been fantastic and just from our TV3 appearance we've been given the opportunity to take a popup shop unit in Shopping World in Deansgrange this Thursday - Sunday. Shopping World is a great idea it's like a popup shopping centre. There's about 12 units and each of them is a popup shop. We'll be there from 10 - 7 on Thursday and Friday, 10 - 6 on Saturday, and 11 - 6 on Sunday. It's on the Deansgrange Road just beside MSL and Twyford car dealers very close to the Grange Pub, Lidl supermarket and the library. You can get to it by Dublin Bus 7D, 45, 46A & 75 - there's also LOADS of parking. Pop in to say hey at some stage, we'll have a few surprises over the four days and plenty of fun and banter to make the trip down worthwhile!
