Posted 6 April, 2010, 20:14

Powered by Watch the NEW video clip! Paula Seling & Ovi will represent Romania with the song "Playing With Fire" at the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo (Norway), taking place on the 25th, 27th and 29th of May. (c) & (p) by Adevarul Holding and TVR Directed by Mihnea de Vries Production Company: Schneider Productions Romania Executive Producer: Eduard Schneider The action of this video is happening in the near future. Paula and Ovi are taking a domestic fight to another level by controlling different characters in a computer game: Pilots in a space-race, soldiers in urban warfare, dancers and finally robots dancing in sync with the human dancers. The video has been filmed in Romania and Austria. The technology behind it is similar to the one used for making the movie Avatar, called "motion capture". Special suits with motion sensors have been used to translate the dancers movements onto the 3D generated and animated robots. The crew behind this is pan-European. Director Mihnea de Vries has Belgian ancestors, Executive Producer Eduard Schneider is German and French citizen, currently living in Romania. Motion-capture technicians are Austrian and the CGI-team is spread all over Europe, supervised by senior Visual-FX artist Cristian "Freespace" Ciocotisan.
