Last week saw Keeping Up With The Kardashians finally come to an end after 20 seasons and a “krew” member has shared a lengthy wrap video to remember the good times.
And Kim Kardashian took to social media on Sunday to praise the production crew for their efforts.
In a Twitter post, Kim, 40, shared the video by Cesar Castillo that gave viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the folk who kept the cameras rolling over the last 14 years of filming.
The 13 minute video – cut down to a little over two minutes for Kim’s post – shows the “krew” enjoying locations around the world before being thanked by members of the family, including Kim and her “momager” Kris Jenner.
In the caption, Cesar wrote: “During these years, friendships and bonds were built and eventually these relationships transitioned into becoming a family.
“We’ve created so many memories throughout the years, here are some of them.”
The opening scenes from the montage see the family watching fireworks while words on the screen read “our last night of filming”.
Cesar then tells viewers they will see how they all became a family as shots from across the globe are brilliantly cut and pieced together.
The mini production showcased how the crew would spend long days and nights filming every aspect of the family’s life around the world and how much time and manpower was needed for the task.
And in an emotional message on the clip, mum Kris, 65, said: “Thank you to our amazing crew, who for the last 15 years and 20 seasons has been the backbone of every single frame we’ve shot, and every single episode we did.
“It’s about a team and we could have never done this without you.”
She continued to thank those behind the scenes “for everything that everybody sacrificed” to help the family “shine” on screen.
Kim wasn’t quite as tearful as she joked she’d save the waterworks for the wrap party. However, the model also paid tribute to the production staff and called them her “lifelong family” who know “every single secret” about her.
Khloe and Kourtney were also seen on the extended version of the video passing on their gratitude to the staff.
Kourtney, 42, kept it brief as she said: “We did it! I love you and I’m gonna be sad — even as much as you think I’m not, to not see you guys.”
The family treated the crew to an expensive range of Rolexes and Cartier watches as a token of their appreciation as the show came to a close.
Although Keeping Up With The Kardashians has ended, the family signed a lucrative deal with Hulu and Disney to continue to create content. However, what it will be has been kept under wraps.
