Filming the 3 video clips

The Dream Team of Demy (composer Dimitris Kontopoulos and choreographer Fokas Evaggelinos) flew for three days to the Ukrainian city of Odessa to shoot the three music videos that will be presented to the Greek audience on 6 March.

The Greek Dream Team chose that city in order to highlight its Greek elements, since there is a big Greek community in Odessa, and to build bridges of friendship between Greece and this year’s host country.

Demy had there a special meeting with the Mayor of Odessa, Mr Hennadiy Trukhanov. During the conversation with the Mayor, Demy stated:

It’s an honour for us to shoot the video clips here in Odessa and we are very happy and thankful that everything went well, as expected.
