    Ideas of postcards

    Over the years, in almost each edition of the contest, we are accustomed to watch beautiful videoclips called postcards before each performance. Sometimes, it was the presentation of cultural aspects of the host countries (for example Ireland in the 90's or Azerbaidjan 2012), or the introduction of the artists in their home countries.

    I pretty liked the postcards in Copenhagen thanks to the creativity of the countries to represent their flags.
    And what are your ideas of postcards ?

    I have three ideas:
    1)In each video clip, we can see the past participants (available at the moment) of the country gathering together in order to take a "family photo". The participant(s) of the current edition is holding the national flag in front of all of them. They can be taken in front of a symbolic building of the country.
    2)In each postcard, the participants are represented as cartoon characters, each one has its own style of drawing thanks to various artists from the European animation market.
    3)In each postcard, the country is represented as "the country of +name of a quality or qualification". For example, Portugal can be the country of hospitality, the United Kingdom the country of royalty, France the country of love or Greece the country of philosophy. And in each video clip, each participant acts in a funny or beautiful way to make this assertion true.

    Re: Ideas of postcards

    @Rayman I like your ideas. The 2nd one would have to fit a rather daring and crazy theme from the host country I'd say, yet it'd be interesting. As to the 3rd one, I'm sure Azerbaijan would be qualified as "land of everything".

    As I am so in love with European languages, I'd suggest that the postcards show each artist about to perform read a poem (from a national poet) in their own language. The places they'll shoot each postcard would be in line with what the poem is about.

    Well I think show some places of each country is the best idea, which is something that was tried at 2013 but not complitely. And I liked and what tuorem said about the languages but in a way like it was in 2011, though "Building Bridges" will probably sound odd in some languages

    How about a clip showing the person walking across one of the most famous bridges in their country? Like in the UK the singer would be walking across Tower Bridge. Then they would be stood in the middle of it with the national flag surrounded by friends and family, holding up traffic. Then they would quickly run off the bridge to avoid being ran over by the enraged white van man.

    If I were part of the EBU delegation responsible for ESC, I would hire you in a heartbeat.

    Too bad, I'm not. So, here, take my like instead.

    I really think that this is a fitting concept for the whole building bridges theme. If they end up doing something like this, call them up and say it was your idea

    Well ORF have been begging me to join their delegation for ESC for months now. But I keep saying no. If they use my idea then I will sue them for theft.

    Well that's one hell of a bump but some were roaming in my head for quite a while.

    Picture this - the artist of the song gets to make his/her/their song title sound literal. Like, if the song title is "Love", the artist(s) must portray love. At the end of it, a 'snapshot' ends up being taken with the song's title written as a caption.

    I'd surely be up for this to make everyone see how important are the song titles

    My idea would be that the contestants cook a famous dish from their country, for example could make fries or bigos. Would be an interesting idea.
