February 5, 2012


On Saturday I decided to try myself at the casting for Eurovision’s promotional videos. As you know Eurovision 2012 will be held in my homeland Azerbaijan, in Baku and everyone here are super excited about it! The casting went very well, everything was organized and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. For the quick “photoshoot” I decided to wear something casual and avoid black colour which is primary in so many girls’ outfits this cold February. After I filled in a form and the photographer took my pictures, I was approached by producer of the Eurovision 2012 – Tahir Aliyev, who is also getting noticed in the movie industry. (His film “Woman on hold” will be presented at the 62nd International Berlinale film festival.) So it was flattering when I among some other girls and boys were chosen for the small video and photoshoot for www.eurovision.tv. So take a look at the video at the end of this post! Can you find me there? ;)

Of course I can’t wait for the results of the casting call as it always great to try something new, to challenge yourself and meet new people. And oh, isn’t it would be great if I will be in the promotional video of one of my followers’ country? :)
В субботу я решила пойти на кастинг для съемок в промо-роликах Евровидения 2012. Как вы уже, наверняка, знаете, в этом году Евровидение пройдет в Азербайджане, в моем родном городе Баку. Все здесь безумно взволнованы предстоящим событием и с нетерпением ждут его. Кастинг был проведен на отличном уровне: организованно и в теплой дружеской атмосфере. Для фото-кастинга я решила надеть что-нибудь простое, и избежать черного цвета, который преобладает в нарядах девушек в этом холодном феврале. После того как я заполнила анкету и фотограф сделала пару моих снимков, ко мне подошел продюсер Евровидения 2012 – Таир Алиев, который так же становится все более заметной фигурой в мире кино. (Его фильм «Ожидающая женщина» будет представлен на 62ом международном кинофестивале Берлинале).Так, что мне было приятно, что меня и нескольких других парней и девушек, сразу же выбрали сняться для мини-ролика и сделать несколько фотографий для сайта www.eurovision.tv . Это видео я, кстати, выложила в конце поста! Сможете меня там найти? ;)

Сейчас я с нетерпением жду результатов кастинга, так как это всегда потрясающе пробовать что-то новое, ставить себе неожиданные цели и знакомиться с интересными людьми. И разве не будет здорово, если я снимусь для промо-ролика одной из стран, в которой живете вы, мои читатели? :)

Some shots were made with iPhone: in the car on the way to the casting, my questionnaire, waiting for the shoot (sorry I can't help but pouting on almost all my iPhone pictures :D) / 

Некоторые фотографии были сделаны с помощью iPhone: в машине, по дороге на кастинг, моя анкета, я в ожидании своей очереди на съемку (извините, что на всех этих фотографиях я надуваю губки. Не могу ничего с этим поделать! :D )

"Backstage" :)

This shot were on the news page on eurovision.tv

And the video!

youngbrokefabulous, hey, thank you so much! Well I work mostly for 2 magazines: The Wedding Magazine (editor and art-director) and AZ magazine (write about fashion trends and design fashion pages). Both magazines are printed in Baku, BUT they're both are widely spread, because Wedding is collaborating with brands and photographers all around the world and we do have a lot of readers from Russia, Ukraine etc. And AZ magazine is the magazine for expats living in Baku, so we have international readership :) Hope I asked to your question xx
