ITALY – More information on the content of this year’s postcards has been disclosed in the media guide for the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest.
The postcards were already known to embrace the contest’s motto, “The Sound of Beauty,” with Rai shooting in attractive and lovely areas around Italy.
Drones were employed to film video at each place, it has been disclosed. This was used with CGI to create the final postcard, which seemed to be seen through the eyes of the drone figure “LEO.”
The presenter will summon the drone “LEO” each time a new participant takes the stage. This implies that, like in Sanremo, we may witness each performer enter on stage and be introduced by the emcee before the postcard is displayed.
LEO will then display the surroundings of the act’s postcard location and move about as images of the players and their creative world are superimposed over the locales.
LEO will examine these photographs, and at one point, a beam of light will emerge from the LED body, revealing an unreleased video by the performers, who will all engage with LEO on camera. The postcards will conclude with an image of LEO documenting his flights above Italy’s sky.
The postcards are shown before the start of each Eurovision Song Contest performance, with each country getting a distinctive postcard.
