Chantal in full carnival regalia
So, who was THAT girl? who is ‘The Times Cover Girl' and what's her story. It's our very own i just want your extra time and your kiss and am i beautiful ?. The cover in question is that of Tuesday, August 30th 2011 the day after Carnival. The Times truly couldn't have picked a more appropriate and deserving cover girl. What is truly ironic is that Chantal has NEVER been to Trinidad’s Carnival. After being featured on the cover Chantal was approached by numerous media houses wanting to tell her story but Chantal had a dream to follow she decided to leave her job and her own story. Chantal oves Carnival and the Caribbean she is passionate about her culture. So in less than a week the Times cover girl will be heading off to Trindad to film the first in the 6 part series documenting the story about the home of Carnival in the Caribbean, TRINIDAD.
The question is do you know anyone, a company interested in helping to fund an absolutely fabulous film project? Then ChantiMedia needs you! The documentary will showcase not just the glorious fetes (parties), the super cool creative community, the Carnival day parade with it’s breathtaking costumes and stunningly gorgeous participants but also to focus on the lesser-exposed elements and creativity of the greatest party on earth and the beautiful Island, which plays host to it every year. Chantal will go behind the scenes and speak to those who have dedicated their lives to the preservation of Trinidadian culture. She will go off the beaten track and seek out the best of Trinidad’s cuisine, music, fashion and art, which may not always receive the mainstream media attention which they truly deserve. Her experience will be well rounded, her perspective, unbiased and unique. Join Chantal on her journey as she experiences her very first carnival in Trinidad.
