As we previously reported, Bulgaria will release their Eurovision 2020 entry on March 7th and a music video for the song will be released on the same day. The video has been co-directed by the artist herself together with the Bulgarian director and screenwriter Viktoria Karakoleva.
The video in one-shot format
The video video is a co-production between the music label behind VICTORIA and her participation at Eurovision, Ligna Studios, and the Bulgarian production company Four Elementz.
Rosen Savkov from Four Elementz is executive producer of the music video project and is the director of photography. The co-director of the music video Viktoria Karakoleva, is also part of the production company Four Elementz. She reveals that the video is filmed in one-shot technique.
We decided to use the one-shot film technique in order to allow the viewers to connect with VICTORIA and her emotions. The lack of editing allows them to experience the real feeling of the song. The video shows VICTORIA’s inner world and the elements of nature illustrate the turmoil inside her.Viktoria Karakoleva about the music video
The live TV premier of the song will be on the Bulgarian national television’s Saturday morning show “Denyat zapochva s Georgi Lubenov” on March 7.
“It wasn’t easy for us to choose the song”
Ligna Studio’s Genove Christova says, that choosing the song wasn’t easy. The message of VICTORIA’s entry aims to inspire the young people who often face difficulties in their daily life.
It wasn’t easy for us to choose the song but we are really happy a lot of people believed in it. Our team reached a consensus about the song and Victoria was really happy about that. The slogan “Open Up” works really well for this project because our message aims to inspire the young people who often face difficulties in their daily life.Genove Christova on Bulgaria’s entry at Eurovision 2020
The artist herself, VICTORIA, has co-directed the music video for her entry. She says that the story of the song and the video are close to her.
The story of the song and the video is really close to me. It is about the challenges we face in our life and how we find the strength to continue.VICTORIA on her entry
