Another Shade of Blue films on AC
Monday, March 12th, 2012
Another Shade of Blue, a travel video program, was in Belize over the past week filming their last episode for this season. The crew had the opportunity to film all across the country, from a Maya ruin, to caves and the cayes. The crew was on Ambergris Caye where they had the opportunity to film the spectacular underwater world of our reef system, catch crocodiles with the American Crocodile Education Sanctuary/ACES and of course enjoy some of the entertainment on Ambergris Caye, especially the world-famous Chicken Drop at Wahoo’s Lounge.
The host Ty Sawyer took time out to interact with visitors and locals while filming the Chicken Drop on Tuesday February 6th. “What we are filming is the authentic side of the destination; something with a strong sense of place. You can’t come to Belize without going out to the rainforest to see Maya ruins… the caves… the cooking and food… the cayes like Ambergris and the reef,” explained Sawyer. He added that, “we like to motivate people to travel to the destination we have been travelling to. We try to portray what the authentic element of the experience would be.”
The crew filmed Sawyer visiting Xunantunich, some of the caves in the Cayo District, the jungle, preparing typical Creole dishes, diving on the reef at Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley, releasing a crocodile and enjoying activities on Ambergris Caye such as the Chicken Drop. According to Sawyer, Another Shade of Blue is aired on several channels in the USA, UK and Spain and is transmitted to over 100 million households.
The adventures of Sawyer while in Belize will be the 12th episode in the first season of Another Shade of Blue for 2012 which is expected to air in May.
