*The list and cover will be posted after. I translated this short interview,  I found it quite intresting how much the shows cost compared to the shows they produced now.
After the show, a bonus feature:
Interview Special with Marie To from Channel 22 - KJTL. Houston, Texas.
Tran Van Nhat of Truyen Hinh Viet Nam Houston conducts the interview.

Q: Is the company named Thuy Nga because it is owned by the singer Thuy Nga, wife of songwriter Hoang Thi Tho?
A: No, the name Thuy Nga was formed from my mother’s name and her friends name.

Q: Was Thuy Nga established independently or by a company?
A: Thuy Nga was established by a company in Saigon 1971 at Crystal Palace Shopping Centre

Q: During the time in Saigon, what projects have Thuy Nga released?
A: Tinh ca Ngo Thuy Mien, Khanh Ly, Thanh Tuyen, comedy audios like Tieu Vuong Hoi..

Q: How were the documentary films for program specials obtained?
A: Purchased from the France Archives and some are given permission by family and friends.

Q: Does Thuy Nga have their own filming studio?
A: No, when producing a program we must rent a studio in Paris.

Q: When producing a video like this PBN special how many steps are there?
A: When we produced PBN Special we had to prepare 6 months earlier, invite singers and selecting songs, then rent a recording studio.
Q: How much does it cost to rent a filming studio?
A: We rent a studio for 3 days:
*Day One is for the production designers to build a stage set
*Day Two is for the lighting crew and filming crew to set up
*Day Three is the filming day: Morning is for practice and the actual filming happens at night.

Q: What does the price tally up to?
A: $35,000

Q: And the total added with singers?
A: With singers, we have to take care of airplane tickets, hotel arrangements, and accommodations 2 months prior. Just like this PBN special: Ai Van was flown from Berlin, Che Linh from Canada, and the rest from US. Besides that we also have to pay for dancers in Linda’s number and rent a piano and player for Bach Yen’s performance. Which is additional $18,000.

Q: Why doesn’t Thuy Nga rent a filming studio in US instead of Paris to lower the cost rate?
A: Because we have a contract with Euro Media Television since 1983. This is the largest television productions in Europe where most of France’s television programs for are filmed at. The cost they offer us is quite cheaper than that of a studio in Hollywood.

Q: Could they film at club?
A: To film such a show, we must have a space of 30,000 sqft., a 30 feet tall ceiling,
250,000 watts to hold the audio/lighting system. Clubs are too small for the lights which is why filming there would not be our choice for this PBN special.

Q: When finishing filming, how much does it cost to create the master tapes?
A: $53,000

Q: Is there a way to make the cost lower?
A: Yes, we could for example have only 5 songs from our usual 10. Create shorter tapes will make it easier on printing costs and shipping through UPS will save money.

Q: With such a high cost does Thuy Nga get large profits?
A: Most likely not, because the Vietnamese market is quite small. We only release 10,000 tapes for each program, if we could gain large profits then there would be no problem. But we still believe in providing entertainment to the Vietnamese community, which the singers bring to the fans that have supported the company all these years.

Q: We noticed that there is one type of program that Thuy Nga does not produce which is Children’s videos why is that?
A: There are a lot difficulties that we run into if we produce an educational video for children. There is a language barrier with the generation of Vietnamese kids that are only fluent in English and filming cost is large, we’re not sure if sells will cover for those costs.
