Tristan Thompson Showing More Mature Side, According To KUWTK Executive Producer: I Think So Much More Highly Of Him Now
Longtime executive producer of Keeping Up With the Kardashians Farnaz Farjam has revealed how their production company Bunim/Murray Productions has been able to film the show during the COVID-19 pandemic.
When Farnaz Farjam and Kardashian -Jenner matriarch Kris Jenner came up with the idea of having the family filming themselves, the producer reveals that filming themselves has been a process that the whole cast and crew are getting adjusted to,
“If Kris [Jenner] gets annoyed and walks out of the camera angle, it’s not like we can follow her and continue shooting. She has to come back onto the screen and explain [why she walked away], it’s less fly-on-the-wall, because we have to give them direction and they have to be more informative with us… But because this is the Kardashians and they’re entertaining regardless, it will be a fun watch for people.”
In order to make sure that the scenes were filmed with the best camera quality, Farnaz Farjam made sure that the crew was respecting the social distancing rules.
“She [Farnaz] hired a director of photography and a technician, who put on a precautionary hazmat suit and configured brightly-lit rooms in Kim’s [Kardashian] self-described “minimalist monastery” mansion and in Khloé’s [Kardashian] Calabasas home. There they set up phone-friendly tripods, which were carefully cleaned with sanitary wipes to combat the transfer of any germs. The family waited 24 hours before entering the rooms to further avoid any potential COVID-19 contamination.”
Farnaz also talks about how honest and candid Kim Kardashian West has been with her journey of juggling four kids, and homeschooling the two oldest North, 6 and Saint,4 while in quarantine. Farnaz explains,
“I’m really excited for people to see Kim [Kardashian] having to juggle everything on her own, especially early on, when it was so, so scary, Now people have been quarantining for a long time and have trusted people in their lives to help them out, but in the beginning they didn’t have that. Watching Kim juggle four kids will be really relatable. No matter how big her house is, four kids is four kids. It’s a lot.”
According to the producer, the self quarantine series will also address the co-parenting relationship between Khloe Kardashian and her ex Tristan Thompson. The two share a daughter together True, 2 and will show what life is like after the Jordyn Woods cheating scandal. Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are not together but they have been quarantining together,
“Tristan definitely stepped up and helped Khloé a lot with True [their daughter], he’s totally showing a way more mature side of himself. I think so much more [highly] of him now. Now that I didn’t like him before, I just like him so, so much more.”
Keeping Up with the Kardashians will be back with new episodes in September.
