Behind the scenes of Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown with the director Morgan Fallon


(CNN) – What Morgan Fallon, director, filmmaker and producer of "Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown" is missing out of working with Tony is pressure.

In a recent phone call with CNN Travel, Fallon described Tony's excessively high expectations for awe. In fact, he may have smiled at the other end of the phone when he explained the processing for "Parts Unknown".

"You could get rid of a rough cut," Fallon said.

In other words, Bordeaux did not get it, and this approach was appreciated by Fallon and other crew members.

The famous chef and star producer "will never accept anything modest," said Fallon, who was pleased with the workflow. "I felt good when Tony was happy with the show," he added.

Tony was the kind of leader that caused people. She had great expectations for producing the show and cared for a certain level of aesthetics. "That's why we had a composer," and he was not just relying on stock music, Fallon said, explaining Bourdain's huge oversight.

You could say that Fallon, who directed the "Parts Unknown" episodes of Ethiopia, Montana, Oman, West Virginia and Kenya to name a few, was was discovered by Tony for the "No Bookings" episode of the Traveling Travel Channel.

When one of the producers saved the trip to Egypt, Fallon was asked to enter and take the step in the most natural way – leading to the desert over a four-seat bed attached to the top of a car. Ah, and there was a Bedouin named Ahmed there with him.

A self-declared natural sniper, always willing to take risks, Fallo says he caught Tony's eye. After wrapping Egypt, Tony sent an email to senior members of Zero Point Zero Production and in particular mentioned Morgan's name, which Fallon says was not typical.

Bourdain wanted to work again with Fallon and eventually Fallon found himself shedding stories and story ideas. West Virginia, where Fallo spent some of his childhood, was such an idea he got to Tony after the presidential election in 2016.

Bourdain went to West Virginia with fresh eyes, hoping to understand the place and the people who live there.

"I went to Tony and said we had to do an episode here, and agreed."

Fallon says both himself and Bourdain were satisfied with the final episode he caused, which Fallon calls positively and in a balanced way. And the West Virginia seemed happy. A fan wrote on the Explore Parts Unknown website to say that Bourdain "captured our humanity nicely." "He showed the people of West Virginia not so stupid, unfortunate victims of poverty, but also people who work hard to go through decades of exploiting big business."

Many photos behind the scenes from various "Supreme Articles" clearly shoot his gentle and careful behavior. "It should be noted," Fallon said, no matter how exhausted he was, no matter how much he spends a whole day filming, "he always gave.

Although perhaps he was not a celebrity who enjoyed celebrity, he handled gracefully and instructed his crew to do the same, Fallon explained. And it was nice to everyone who met along the way.

Of the people who invited Bourdain and his crew to their homes to restaurant employees who cook and serve food where he is dining with guests, Tony showed a humility and demanded that his own team (or end the danger) .
