Filming starts today on Latvian postcard06 March 2013 at 02:00 CET
The Swedish filming team will spend three days from today to film the Latvian postcard to be broadcast during Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö.
As Zita Kaminska, the producer of Eurovision project in Latvia, points out; "It is very uncommon in Eurovision history that the participants are filmed in their usual surroundings. Obviously, the Swedish filming team likes PeR guys. The Latvian postcard is planned to be very attractive."
The schedule for the coming three days is very tight; the PeR guys will go-karting, drive with cars, visit Riga Zoo and the Museum of Aviation, see the sights of Riga Old Town from the heights of St Peter’s Church Tower, as well as try to catch thier private jet at Riga Airport. The filming locations are in Aizpute, in Riga as well as in Ralfs and Edmunds’ schools.
Yesterday, choreographer Adrienne Abjörn landed in Riga to continue polishing the 'PeR PeRformance' for their Eurovision entry Here We Go. Adrienne Abjörn has worked at the Stockholm Ballet Academy, as a teacher, and has successfully provd herself internationally. The PeR guys have been impressed by the cooperation.
Ralf Eilands the front man of the group is confident. "We met the choreographer a week ago. We like, and appreciate, that the PeRformance of our song is not altered, and it maintains the same festive feeling it has during the Latvian national selection. The choreographer has brilliant ideas about improving and emphasising some elements of the PeRformance. We like it, and we think the audience will enjoy it as well."
