… this association has been and is still following me, after 25 years. To quote a friend of mine, I have entered the collective unconscious. J
Yes, I am Dana Mladin from the “Stars’ School”, even if my “history” has not started and has not ended with this.
I smile every time when someone in the street, in a shop or in a line stares at me and tells me I look kind of familiar, but he/she has no idea why… Have we been high-school colleagues? Am I an actress by any chance? Or maybe I was on TV? Wait! I know you! You are from the tv show “Stars’ School”! And then we start remembering things.
STARS’ SCHOOL TVR
This was a chapter that marked a whole generation. And especially us, who were part of the project. Myself – first and foremost as an editor. Then as a host. I have learned from “Mr. Titus” how a show is made, what professional respect is and how to let your imagination free.
I have spent years in the TVR – the public television studios, in the control room or in the make-up department, in the editor’s room, in rehearsal and post-production rooms. And outside, anywhere, when we were filming around the country or when we were going on tours and to music festivals.
Sometimes I got involved in things that were not my business, but I have always liked learning during the moments I had nothing to do as a host or as an editor.
As the host of the show, the thing that I liked most was having to transform into all kinds of characters, depending on the script.
I changed tens of costumes, I wore wigs, moustaches, beards, I was bald or a diva with long hair, I played the role of a man, of a news anchor, a mayor, or a fortune teller, I filmed on the roof of the theatre building in Mamaia, I came out of the snow, I jumped in cold water and many other things like that.
For the special New Year’s Eve shows, I was trying to learn the gestures of some great artists, to be able to imitate them during my intros.
This is an experience nobody could ever forget.
