Condition one: having a good host. Check. Condition two: daring to let go of a fixed concept. Check.

The flemish public-service broadcaster, VRT, was looking for a new, unorthodox talkshow hosted by Thomas Vanderveken. Vanderveken is considered one of the best interviewers of Flanders. It was a given that the television show would be built around interviews.

So far, so good. But how to have a good conversation on television? A spontaneous, but informative and surprising chat? An in-depth, but still playful talk? Honest, trustful, open.

A talk show, in which it's possible to take your time, without the conversation being slow, let alone boring.

Together with Thomas Vanderveken and the VRT-team, we made the shift from a linear scenario to a cluster approach. In combination with a surprising selection of audiovisual fragments, this approach led to great conversations about society, feelings and personal life.

Alleen Elvis blijft bestaan (Only Elvis is forever), named after a song by Luc De Vos, a Flemish rock hero who died too soon, is a television show that takes its time. A talk show in which host and guest surrender to images and dare to inspire each other.
