  • Welcome back to 8IELTS and the world of television.

  • We gonna introduce to you a little bit of the television world.

  • This is the OB truck and inside the truck we have.

  • Hello everyone.

  • We have Anh Trong, who is our DOP.

  • ng, our production assistant.

  • This is anhng, our OB truck technician.

  • And all of these materials and equipment is really complicated.

  • I don't understand all of these, but one day I do wish to.

  • But an interesting thing about this topic is that this is where all the magic happens, this is where the direction happens.

  • It's one of the coldest places that you can find in a television station.

  • And it's also at night, this is where all the mist go to, because this is always outside.

  • But despite the fact that you saw a bit of the technicality of television, today's episode we will be talking about television with a very special guest.

  • And it's gonna be the human aspect and human experience of television.

  • So be excited and we gonna give you a tour into our life.

  • Welcome back to the studio.

  • Guys, guess what, you ask and we listen.

  • And today topic is on Television and we have our guess that you've been all waiting to meet.

  • And she is right here shooting with me in this studio.

  • Let's welcome Duong Tran.

  • Hello.

  • Hello, hi.

  • Thank you for coming.

  • Thank you. Thank you for having me here on the show.

  • I'm very excited to join in 8IELTS.

  • How does it feel being a guess this time?

  • Oh God, I think I'm really used to posing questions.

  • So if I seem a little bit on the spot today, feel a little bit hesitant, it's because I'm always used to posing questions.

  • So this is new for me.

  • I guess today is a conversation.

  • I ask questions, you're free to ask questions too if you like.

  • Ok, first question, you were an environmental major as well as French major, how did your path to television start?

  • It seems quite random, doesn't it?

  • I graduated from school and like all graduate back then, I had no idea what I want to do obviously.

  • In Liberal Art School in the States, people embrace this image of a graduate going out there to kind of save the world.

  • Once you get out in the real world, especially for me coming back to Vietnam that time.

  • It wasn't like I could go out and have a job that would allow me to be like this hero or save the world as in the books that I learnt during college.

  • So I started a translation job because that's what I knew, I knew English.

  • That's how I ended up in VTV and television.

  • And then people started giving me jobs and things that I'd never done before.

  • It started from the voice and it startedOk, we need someone to stand in for this person to read news”.

  • I can't do that, but I did, eventually I did.

  • One thing just led to the next.

  • You're doing your Journalistic TV; you're also doing a little bit of the broadcast TV.

  • What is the difference in these experiences?

  • It's a little different in term of practicality obviously.

  • When I first started out being in front of the limelight in talking, being able to express your idea fluently and at the same time being very mindful of what audience think,

  • whether they be Vietnamese or international, those are kind of first challenges.

  • But overtime, the challenges are to stay and continue to be creative and love what you do.

  • Obviously, people that I meet, they are the biggest inspiration.

  • I'm lucky to be able to work in different variety of fields.

  • Those things give me inspirations to continue on my next show and to continue this path.

  • Whether the differences in journalistic and then broadcast, obviously, in a lot of the feature that you have more fun in terms of you get to experience more lifestyle or sides of broadcast.

  • Whereas, with journalistic, I get to practice a lot of what I learnt in school later on, in grad school.

  • That's kind of the basic of the journalism and journalistic identity, where you try to portray what you see as closely as possible.

  • Obviously, there're differences between features and news.

  • A lot of the time when you think about television, especially television in Vietnam, and probably similar around the world in sense of that people love drama.

  • You know, people like to see all that crazy motions on TV.

  • And sometimes people on TV, they love that kind of stuff as well.

  • So are you a drama person or are you not a drama person when it comes to your work?

  • To answer straightly, I would say I'm not a drama person.

  • I do a lot of news on TV on a daily basis; I try to keep it as straight-forward as possible, quick and simple, but at the same time very true to the story.

  • We also broadcast to international audience, so it's also about how the international audience sees Vietnam.

  • And I see myself having to film real huge truth because that is about portraying the whole country.

  • When it comes to news, we're very careful.

  • But obviously when it comes to feature, we try to portray Vietnam in the best of ways, but also in the fun of way, interesting.

  • One of goals is to get people to come to Vietnam, to know about Vietnam, to know what is going on.

  • Now that you're a mom, and you're working mom, what's your day like?

  • Right now it's definitely hard being a working mom.

  • I definitely have a huge respect for all moms once I turn to mom.

  • And even more so now as my baby's growing up older and especially more appreciation for my mom.

  • And all of the hard work that she had to go through to raise me up to be who I am today.

  • But in terms of my day, definitely I try my best to, you know, see my baby as much as possible.

  • I'm very lucky to live right next to my work, so I go home as much as possible and try to work once he goes to sleep, if I had work to do at home

  • But it's going well so far, definitely stressful and it gotta give me so much appreciation for all the working moms out there.

  • And it probably trains you to be a lot more to recognize your identity and another aspect of the Vietnamese identity, right?

  • It's an identity that's so close and dear to the heart of so many Vietnamese people that Vietnamese women are strong.

  • Strong in terms of not only physically strong, but mentally strong to be able to balance all of the things in their life, a career, a family, children and still having great to all of that.

  • Those are my role models, and my mom is a great role model in that aspect, someone I aspire to become in the future.

  • I mean I'm not sure I'm doing such a great job now, and it's still so new for me, jungling all of this in one life.

  • But we'll see how it goes and I have a lot of people who've gone before me to look at and to be a role model too.

  • Now talking about that, there're a lot of people in universities, in schools, and young working adults who really look up to you as a role model.

  • And actually, we invited some people here today, to the studio but we're gonna meet them later.

  • Before you guys have a chance to meet Duong, we're gonna play a game.

  • And if you already know, we have the IELTS MARATHON and Duong's gonna take for it.

  • OK.

  • Not the TOEFL for the undergraduate and then the IELTS?
