Fangirl Quest ou quand le cinéma et la télé vous poussent à aller voir ailleurs!Fangirl Quest or when films and TV make you want to get out there!

Traduction disponible très prochainement! 

Hi, lambs!

It’s first for me… an interview of other bloggers. It’s been a kong-time coming but after spending one week on the trails of film and television spots in England with the adorably funny Tiia and Essi, I could not resist…

Tiia and Essi are (with Satu, who was not with us) are the minds behind Fangirl Quest, a very popular Tumblr blog dedicated to scene-framing. Three Finnish girls who arenow living in Cardiff, are passionate about films and TV series. What makes them special? They travel around to where films or series were shot and “frame” the scene on the spot where it was filmed.  Pretty quickly, their Tumblr went viral and now, they have launched an IndieGogo campaign to fund their next endeavour: roadtripping around North America, visiting movie sets.

The girls were kind enough to answer a few questions.

1. What is Fangirl Quest all about?

Well it started with the sceneframing photos, where we go into a filming location, bring a picture of the scene filmed there on our iPad and find the exact spot where it was filmed and “re-frame” it there. But it has grown into so much more! We post travel reports from filming locations and attractions worth seeing, write about movies, theatre and related events and organize giveaways with amazing prizes. Basically we love doing anything that combines traveling and being a fangirl. 2. How did it come to life? Last summer we did an epic roadtrip across the UK, from South Wales to Scotland and then to London. On the way we visited several filming locations and Tiia had the idea of doing the sceneframing photos with print-outs of the scenes. Being Tiia she forgot the prints at home so we had to improvise with the iPad and it worked out better than we’d have ever imagined! A couple of months later she posted the photos on Tumblr, and in just a few weeks 60 000 people had shared them and Buzzfeed did an article about them. That’s when we figured out we were on to something and maybe we should go and take some more of these pictures.

2. Why do you think it became so popular?

I wish we knew! There seems to be just something about the photos and the whole idea that people are fascinated by and that’s great. Everything that we do comes from the heart, we really love doing all this, so I’d like to think that it shows and that it’s also something people respond to.

3. Why are you starting the crowdfunding, what is your goal?

We’ve covered lots of places in the UK and though there’s loads more, we really want to do this in USA and Canada. There are so many amazing TV shows and movies we love that have been filmed there that we just can’t wait to get to sceneframe those! Our ultimate dream is to travel all over the continent, starting from Vancouver and then traveling down the West Coast, continuing through the Southwest to Atlanta and then driving up the East Coast.

4. What’s next for FGQ, how would you like to see it evolve?

We have so many things we’d love to do! We just attended Cardiff Comic Con and we’d love to do more of that, going to events with like-minded people and sharing our passion for the things we love, eventually we would even love to organize our own convention. We’d also love to expand on how we share the sceneframing photos with the audience, maybe in a book or even a photo exhibition. There’s even been talk of a travel tv show…

Good luck for the campaign, ladies! This much fun need to be sustained.
