• How Making Blue Light 2012
Plastic apples, lemonade instead of champagne, kilograms and kilometers of serpentine sequins - on the set of the most conservative programs of the central television.
Format "blue fire" has never changed and will never change: the flying streamers at the studio, "Soviet champagne", treats on the tables of spectators. Artists and guests congratulated the audience on the New Year and go up on stage for performances.
Two years ago I was on the set of "Spark". Since that time, little has changed. Unless requested not to clap silently and threw streamers - to this day of filming had already unwound as much as nine kilometers.
stern voice from somewhere above the pavilion was not kidding as last time: "remove hatred from people with such an expression does not meet New Year!" and me with a camera no one chasing camera line - it was felt that this is the last night of filming, still had time to shoot, and the voltage across the site was not.
Basic shooting takes place at night, only this time really get a star on the show. They recite the text written in advance, and sing along with the songs on a small piece of "New Year's is coming ...". Then, after the installation, we will feel that all actors, athletes, actors and other famous people are simultaneously present in the hall and sing.
The shooting "blue fire" coming nine days. Almost to nothing can not be touched - all though beautiful, but shaky. Workers have to constantly tinker with the scenery.
Sequins let a special person adding their hands in the air gun.
of the glasses can not drink the liquid. Firstly, it is not champagne and lemonade. Secondly, even that which is not said to the crowd lemonade, calling the contents of "liquid with certain chemical properties and additives". Well, in the third, in full glasses very easy to put out the sparklers.
Although I did not speak to anyone for what rented, I still calculated and filled Vkontaktik ICQ and request to send the photo. Sitting next to a girl in a red and turquoise were the first ones I found on the Internet.
While the scene is getting ready for the next number, extras warming up in the hallway. They came here on the ads on relevant forums and communities to nine in the morning and leave at four o'clock the next morning.
Among the spectators are very few men, they do not stand up almost daily sitting in a hot room.
Crowd all nonresident. Some of them even went to the capital a few days. But they came here not for money or dreams zip on the TV screen. "I'd like a holiday, but here it is and at home doing nothing." - their main explanation.
This is the extras wardrobe, clothes folded in bags with numbers.
Dressing room turned secret object, pulling me to shoot for something more interesting and resolution.
From 12 am to 12 midnight extras receives 500 rubles (in this case you need to come to 9 am) and after midnight a hundred rubles per hour. But nine rubles earned only enough to ensure that at 4 am to take a taxi to the hotel.
