Yesterday, on August 2, two popular Ukrainian bands – Boombox and O.Torvald presented a video for the song “Vechir in Rio”. Famous Ukrainian rock musician, the leader of the group O.Torvald Zhenya Galich told how the shooting took place.
“The song” Rio “was written while working on the album” Ti Є “in 2014. The band O.Torvald had great music, but we did not know how to realize it. And one day Andrei Khlyvnyuk came to the studio and began singing his own songs versions of the text.As a result, a common song, called “Evening in Rio,” – said Galich.
According to him, the original version of the clip was fundamentally different from what happened in the end.
“When they started to shoot the video, they wanted to attract a huge number of girls who were supposed to compete for us with Andrei Khlyvnyuk: wallow in the mud, pull the rope, sword with swords, participate in races at the racetrack, etc. But as a result, we stopped at , that one not indifferent to us girl will “kill” us, chasing us in the car, “- said the leader O.Torvald.
As he said, for shootings to musicians the considerable skill and the good physical form was required.
Andrei was in great shape now, he got a sporty image, so he ran in sneakers, and I needed to run in shoes and in a strict suit, and somewhere in the first or second hour of car racing I had legs appeared bloody tracks … it was very painful.So on the set of the video “In Rio” was shed the blood of Galich, “joked the musician.
The idea behind the clip is the pursuit. In it, the heroes of Khlyvnyuk and Galich used all means – they rushed mobile, chaotically shot, sang and all this time ran through the night to escape from the furious girl who was chasing them in the car. There are no deaths in the clip, but there is an open end. So everyone decides whether they killed the heroes or not.
The director of the video was Nikita Kvasnikov – the dark horse of Ukrainian clipmaking, and the main female role was played by Anna Rikunova. The clip was shot in two days on 29 km of the route Kiev-Chop.
Let’s remind, O.Torvald take a pause for a year. Earlier we wrote, Boombox and The Gitas presented a video for the song “Trimai Mene”.
