The Interview 07/05/2018

Shijiazhuang, CHN - 5 May @ Roland

WDSF Communications team member Helmut Roland travelled to Shijiazhuang, CHN, on Friday 4 May and returned on Sunday 6 May. The little time he was actually in the city, which is a three-hour train ride from Beijing, he spent taking photographs and video of all rounds of the 2017 WDSF PD World Latin. Below you have the interview with the new PD World Champions Latin, Moldovans Gabriele Goffredo and Anna Matus, which he recorded just prior to getting on his journey back.

While it is true that top-tier WDSF PD events were not quite as exposed as their regular counterparts in the past, this has changed dramatically in 2018. All but one of the PD events - namely the Super GrandPrix in Pieve di Cento - had productions attached. Elaborate multi-camera video-on-demand programmes are still to be released over the coming weeks.
