With an award-winning standard set by Garpen’s Europa (GE) first series, Matt joined the OTW production on a 10-day tour of Scotland, Czech and Denmark, covering draws in the Champions Hockey League (CHL).
A NordicBet Sverige piece of branded-content, GE is hosted by legendary Swedish and ex-NHL player, Johan Garpenlöv & journalist Jacob Nyström. The pair visited clashes featuring visiting Swedish teams in Glasgow, Pardubice and Vojens. From dissecting the upcoming game, to examining an aspect of the home club’s success, whilst wagering a cheeky bet in the process.
For a pair of presenters that were simply cast together, the chemistry is outstanding, making for a most excellent tour both on and off-screen. From a chance encounter in a Danish cafe, leading to a most excellent afternoon with the keys to a castle, and many more spontaneous adventures.
Originated on the Canon C300, supported by GoPro & DSLR – including the innovative puck-cam. Crewed with a 2-person camera/sound crew, and masterfully orchestrated by producer Sanna Lennartsson of OTW.
“Garpen’s Europa, Series 2” went on to win Gold at the 2016 Swedish Content Awards in the category of “Travel / Entertainment / Leisure”.
