MAX HAUSMANN: LUNNIS AT THE PRADO MUSEUM



Author Max Hausmann | Date 28/09/2019

 

THE SPECIAL EPISODE "LUNNIS AT THE PRADO MUSEUM", NOMINATED FOR THE IRIS AWARDS

 

It's the second time that I sneak into the world of the LUNNIS. I can assure you that it's a very closed world where only a few can get in. The star and usually the only human acting with them is the great artist “Lucrecia”, with whom I had the opportunity to work in the special episode “Lunnis of Legend” at Christmas 2018, and with whom for the first time I got to interact with a puppet that is also much more famous than you.

On that occasion the producer of RTVE's children's programming was Luis Boix who trusted blindly in me. He would always tell me; "I saw you in that role right away" even though I couldn't see myself that much. Performing with the LUNNIS isn't easy. Many things change for an actor. To begin with, the tone of voice while acting is close to that of Shakespeare, for it has to be over-acted and it also has to sound real, as we're in the world of children. You have to take into account things like being bad, something that I always get to play, as this isn’t about scaring a group of children from 2 to 7 years old.

Luis Boix (producer) called me again for “Lunnis at the Prado Museum”. On this second occasion I felt that I was more under pressure, for I was going to meet the LUNNIS without Lucrecia's support. That pressure put by an amazing team of professionals, who are responsible for making a different and striking episode for the Prado Museum's bicentennial.

Luis Boix (producer) took me by the hand, and without knowing it he was giving me a wonderful shoot. At the first meeting he introduced me to Miki Sabater (Head of the RTVE Filmmakers Unit), Xavi Viza (Director) and Juan Pedro Alcobendas (lighting and photography director). May they forgive me for the expression; four RTVE dinosaurs with a thousand years of experience. Miki Sabater focused on me straight away. I felt that he wanted to get rid of the worry that the actor in front of him wasn't going to fail and would do things as he had intended them.

I was particularly relieved to see those four important professionals working on the nuances of my character.

Miki (TV producer) and Xavi (director) had this clear, and their idea wasn't far from mine. This is how I found this character so good. "The security guard of the museum", who during the episode would chase the LUNNIS going through many funny situations and ending up being friends with them. A character that thought he was 007, but who was actually someone bored of looking after the museum in the endless nights. An arrogant but friendly and at the same time awkward security guard, who ends up being very funny.

So, inspired by actors like Louis de Funès and Jack Lemmon playing "Professor Fate" in "The Great Race" I managed to find a way. I can't explain how impressive it was to shoot inside the Prado Museum between 01.00 am and 06.00 am with all the technical difficulties and also struggling with the strong security measures adopted by the museum at night.

It was a fantastic shooting, full of magic, and living with the protagonists in their world during that week was an honour. The fantastic actors and actresses who manipulate and give life to the LUNNIS are; Ingrid Domingo "Lucho", Joan Bentallé "Lublu", Lores Marcó "Lulila", Rosa Pou "Lupita" and David Llamas, who is the substitute in case of injury. They are the soul of the LUNNIS. It took me a bit to get back to acting with a puppet, but their work is so fine and they give them so much life that it took me a short time to get it. I must say that on both occasions we have worked they made things easy for me. They helped my acting work be fluid. I thank them for having welcomed me once more as if I were one of them.

In order to create this article Miki Sabater (filmmakers' director) met me at RTVE's Sant Cugat's headquarters. He was extremely kind, as it usually happens when you deal directly with those at the top, and left us this small interview. The first thing he told me was the great news that the episode “Lunnis at the Prado Museum” had been nominated for the “IRIS” Television Awards. It's the equivalent of "The Goya awards".

 

MAX - We have been nominated! How did you get the news?

MIKI - Yes, it's amazing, as we are talking about the “IRIS awards” that are like the “GOYA awards” for television.

MAX - Is it the most important recognition you have had in the long history of "LOS LUNNIS"?

MIKI - Well... we have had many awards with "The Lunnis". A gold “TP” for example, even in Chile I remember. We have a very long history and it is a leading product. This in particular is the recognition of television professionals to a programme. This prize is not given by the public or academics of a festival. This is given by colleagues in the profession and this is the first time that happens to us.

MAX - How did you get the news?

MIKI - I was at a meeting when Ana Ruiz, the executive producer, comes in with a big smile and tells me: We have been nominated for the IRIS awards! And that was such a "high"! I am very fond of "LOS LUNNIS". They started with me and although, as a TV production manager, I'm not responsible for directing the shooting, I keep doing it.

MAX - I don't know if you know our Night&Day Magazine in Ibiza, what's your relationship with the island?

MIKI - A full one! It started at 17, when we set up a windsurfing school in Cala Conta. Then, I went through KU and enjoyed everything that today doesn't exist anymore. I've just got to know your magazine through you. Send me some copies to RTVE, we'll be very happy to follow you.

 Hi Gennaro, it’s a great honour to have you in our magazine.What do you remember most about your beginnings in the culinary world?It's always necessary to contextualize the historical moment. My generation began to work collecting on the one hand what learnt at school, whose references were all French and depicted a very pompous cuisine, while on the other it saw the real world and discovered a kitchen in which mayonnaise and ketchup were mixed. In short, our cuisine had no identity: farfalle pasta with salmon, shrimp cocktail, and champagne risotto reigned supreme. In practice...
