Post-Eurovision Depression is in full swing. But today we deal with it by revisiting the Eurovision 2017 postcards. The concept of each postcard was a day in the 42 artists’ life, before stepping on the big Eurovision stage.
We caught a glimpse of the artists’ lifestyle, hobbies, and even an unexpected pregnancy announcement via Jana Burceska. We also met some of the stars’ families and friends, saw their homes and recording studios, and felt what it’s like to be in front of an adoring audience. We saw them training, going out with friends, reading and walking their pets. We saw them hugging their children and writing songs. We saw them as they are.
While many of the postcards were shot in their respective countries, some were filmed in Ukraine, while Moldova’s SunStroke Project, for instance, shot their postcard in Amsterdam ahead of Eurovision in Concert, due to budget constraints. The beginning and the end of all 42 postcards were filmed in Ukraine, in a studio resembling a backstage. The artists, wearing their Eurovision outfits, were then joined by their teams, who were getting them ready for the big stage.
