Today's post is dedicated to SFU's very own Panwiberry. I had so much fun hanging out with them and I must say this is the most I've laughed throughout all of my interviews.

When I sat down with Panwiberry there was one thing that I knew I had to ask for sure and that was how they came up with their name. It is so unique and unlike any other name I have heard before. Their name came from the four fruits that the four founding members of the group liked. The P is from peach, AN is from mango, WI is from kiwi and berry is from strawberry. Put the fruits together and you get Panwiberry.

Panwiberry was started by a group of friends who wanted to do dance covers together and as the time went on, they held auditions and that is how members like Ashley, Suzie, T, Gabriel and Alyssa eventually joined the group.

I was curious to know how they felt about filming everyone's favourite public covers. They expressed that they are a bit nervous at first but once they start dancing they have so much fun with it that they forget about the stress. They also love getting reactions from people passing by on the street.

I asked Panwiberry what they thought made them stand out from the rest and they told me how much effort they put into making their videos more creative. Ashley as well as other members put in a lot of effort into the video editing and post-production to make their videos look and feel unique.

People can always look forward to some cool edits in their videos and one thing I especially love about Panwiberry's vids is how they play with colour grading.

As you can probably guess by now I also asked the members what their favourite covers were and why.
