Swedish national broadcaster is already recording the postcards by visiting various countries who already selected their entries. After Cyprus and Greece SVT visited Latvia where there will be three days of recording scenes with group PeR who will represent the country in the Eurovision Song Contest 2013.
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.
Choreographer Adrienne Abjörn is already in Riga revamping the act for the Eurovision Song Contest act “Here We Go”.
