“Keeping Up with the Kardashians” is filming in mobile phones
Farjam she explained to Elle how he planned originally that all members of the family Kardashian-Jenner cultivate images on their cell phones. After you upload it to a shared album, Farjam and his editing team would work their magic.
Farjam quickly realized that the plan would not work. “As we [saw footage come in]I thought, ‘people will get tired of seeing this [poor quality] images like this‘, ” said the producer. “We needed to get those people spaces interview appropriate”.
To get better images, Farjam brought a director of photography and a service technician with security dress (of caution and all) set up rooms with bright lighting and tripods for cell phones in the homes of Kardashian West and Khloé Kardashian.
There have been some technical difficulties.
Usually, the expert videographers have the task of filming the footage that makes KUWTK is so interesting. Now, that responsibility is in the hands of the clan Kardashian-Jenner. According to Farjam, they are still working on some of the technical problems. “Sometimes you’ll hear [one of] muttering between his teeth: “Who knew that the work of a person with a camera would be so difficult?”, shared Farjam. But that is precisely the type of footage that Farjam is looking for. “That is gold. That is what we want to include in the program. “

He used multiple phones to collect images during the rest of the season 18. Each Monday, the showrunners leave new phones to record this week and collect that were used to film the previous week. Farjam said that each phone has an average of 16 hours of footage, which is enough for publishers to create stories.
New episodes of “KUWTK” will not be so revealing
Farjam explained how the episodes remaining this season will not be as intimate as the earlier episodes. For example, “if Kris is upset and leaves the angle of the camera, it is not as if we could follow it and keep firing,” he said. “She has to return to the screen, and explain [why she walked away]. ”
The rest of the season 18 will be “less of a fly on the wall”, according to Farjam. Despite having less material to work with, Farjam still promises an interesting conclusion to the season. “Because these are the Kardashians and are entertained regardless, it will be a fun clock for the people”.
What to expect in the final episodes of season 18 of “KUWTK”
With all of the images that the doyennes of the television reality have been captured by his account, fans can expect confessionals filmed with tripods, recorded sessions of Zoom for family dinners, and at least two full episodes compounds completely by images of quarantine spliced.
Farjam said he also expected more drama during the remainder of the season 18. “Just before the quarantine, we had a couple of family members that were not in agreement with something”, he explained Farjam. “I can’t reveal who, but end up joining during the quarantine, and it is really sweet.”
