There has been a big stream of news for Estonia lately. Following the funding’s securing for the projection dress of the country’s hopeful Elina Nechayeva, ETV broadcaster goes ahead with further revelations regarding the final form of the much-discussed garment.

Let’s have a look!

Earlier today, ETV revealed a picture gallery of their performance plans for the evening of the first semi-final, and hopefully of the Grand Final on 12 May. Elina Nechayeva herself, as well as Alyona Movko, Sander Tuvikene and Britt Kalbus have taken care of the garment.

Elina’s performance of her song La forza will showcase a story full of emotions, displayed by ice, water and flowers. However and as stated by Alyona Movko, the graphics of the dress may still change, as nothing has been finalized yet.

What else does the video artist have to say?

Video artist Alyona Movko confirmed that the first technical rehearsals with the dress have already begun, whilst the rest members of the Estonian delegation got a first impression of its looks today. In particular, she made the following statements:

There’s a production going on right now. We’ve tried it and it looks very cool!

Eurovision is a big event and everyone tries to keep an eye on your show. Elina’s performance will be something very special.

When it comes to Elina’s staging, she added:

The Eurovision projectors are four times more powerful than in Eesti Laul (Estonia’s national selection event). The stage is just as big, or rather small. When I saw that, I thought the stage was created for Elina. It has a special round shape. One of its specific features is that the stage is open and people are almost standing around the whole stage. The dress will be seen from every side of the arena.

The projectors also allow for more powerful graphics, where each detail can be seen. Lots of lights can be used with these projectors. Thus, you can do both light show and detailed animation.

Nevertheless, there are still some minor issues that must be solved, and these have to do with the video coordination with the space and stage, Alyona Movko admitted. At the same time, however, she expressed her trust in the Estonian team, which will be able to accomplish its work successfully.

The team is perfectionists, professionals who immediately shared their expectations and worries. Everyone is coming along very well, it’s incredible. They want to make the most intense and powerful show!
