The filming of the video of Warrior, the Maltese song for the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, started on Wednesday.
The location of the filming is a very old house in Rabat. Although the house is not habitable it contains precious murals which provide a perfect backdrop for the filming. The scene creates a contrast between the musicians, who have their faces covered, and Amber, who emerges as the positive protagonist.
After a long day of filming, we met Amber. She explained that the house, which is over 400 years old, is a gem and very peaceful. It’s a perfect setting for this video. The song remains the star of the show. She continued that Warrior is about dealing with the challenges we have to face in life and having the strength to overcome obstacles. “The moment I sing here I feel a lot of emotions. I hope that my fans can share this feeling when they listen to my song” expressed Amber at the end of the second day of filming.
The video recording continues today, and editing will swiftly follow.
Malta will compete in the first half of the second semi-final. The first semi-final will be held on Tuesday 19th May, and has 16 participants, while the second one with 17 contestants takes place on Thursday 21st May. The Grand Final of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest is on Saturday 23rd May.
