Paula Seling and Ovi will present Romania in Olso. Their entry Playing with fire already has had positive reactions during their promotion tour that started a while ago. The video clip of the song is ready and there has been used 3D technology for the first time on such a Eurovision clip.

The videoclip is a coproduction of TVR and Adevarul Holding,directed byMihnea de Vries,Executive Producer Eduard Schneider andProduction Company: Schneider Productions Romania.
The action of this video happens in the near future. Paula and Ovi are taking a domestic fight to another level by controlling different characters in a computer game: Pilots in a space-race, soldiers in urban warfare, dancers and finally robots dancing in sync with the human dancers. The video has been filmed in Romania and Austria. The technology behind it is similar to the one used for making the movie Avatar, called "motion capture". Special suits with motion sensors have been used to translate the dancers movements onto the 3D generated and animated robots.

The crew behind this is pan-European. Director Mihnea de Vries has Belgian ancestors, Executive Producer Eduard Schneider is German and French citizen, currently living in Romania. Motion-capture technicians are Austrian and the CGI-team is spread all over Europe, supervised by senior Visual-FX artist Cristian "Freespace" Ciocotisan. The production team was formed of about 60 persons, a large number of them renouncing at the Easter holyday for working at the videoclip.

Reactions after only one day after posting the videoclip are excellent.On YouTube therewereregisteredover40.000 visits only in the first day and most of the comments are positive.

Paula Seling & Ovi will compete at the second semifinal of the Eurovision Song Contest on May 27th. They will sing Playing with fire at spot number 10.
