After 6 months of silence...it was about time to learn about the clips of Mademoiselle Zhivago. According to the Facebook Group "Mademoiselle Zhivago",the filming starts at the end of May and there will be a press conference too. The costs have been increased due to the displacement of the film-making schedule but neither Igor Krutoi nor Universal Music France changed their plans.... There were some changes made in the scenario: some new episodes had been added in a subject line and a new character appeared.
I made a quick update at my site,writing all the news that we have:
As far as we know there's a contest for AICOM,with the grand finale on June 7th. The winner among other prizes will earn an individual interpretation course with Lara. The casting is talking place for French and Swiss candidates and one of the judges is Lara's vocal coach,Pierre-Yves Duchesne. Read more here:
About Mademoiselle Zhivago clips,a member of the official forum(Aleksandra),wrote that Maks Barskih,is the person that will have the new role that I had already mentioned in my previous post. He is a new singer,candidate of the show "Fabrique des étoiles – 2" and sex symbol at his country. Time will tell if that's info is reliable.
You can see a backstage video of this quy.The director is Alan Badoev.
Last but not least,the director of the movie Charlie,had been really quite these past few weeks.His tweets seem like he is very busy in finding actors for the cast,and most of all the person that will be the main character Charlie,since Richard Armitage is out. Lara seems to lock at the role of Mimi.
And yes it was about time to learn something really significant about the clips of Mlle. Zhivago. According to Sergey,the administrator of the russian forum,Lara will arrive at the Ukrainian city Lvov this evening and tomorrow she will start filming the clips.
The site DeBosh has an article about the clips saying about a press conference on Monday at the Premier Palace hotel.Despite the raise of the cost some episodes has been added and a new mysterious hero will show up(Maks Barskih). Some interesting info about the clips:
-A model of Auschwitz will be built for the filming, -30 km of film will be used during the filming, -530 are the people that will appear in the clips, -each one of the 30 dresses of Lara has some copies for safety, -the producer of the film is Universal Music France.

The play "TLFM at Quebec" has no end.
According to the site 7jours,the release of TLFM at Quebec is scheduled for mid-September,with Soleil Soleil as the first single and also Lara will promote her album there,visiting the country after a long time!
The site Kaputik has an exclusive interview of Yuri Larionov,the stage designer of Mlle.Z,cause due to the tight schedule(14 hours of shooting),there is no time for interviews.
-He said that he is not surprised for being a member of the crew since he had collaborated again with Alan Badoev,but he is surprised from the amount of the people involved in this project.
-The decorations are not only his own responsibility but Badoev is the one who does all the adjustments,though Lara and Igor can express their creative opinions.
-He says that every clip has different style and it's from a different era.They preserve the architecture of the old city but for the "future" clips they will use retro style and high tech elements.The future clips have to do with lions so the city will remain like that.(laughs) (farm1.static.flickr.com/35/105161295_ebddf6093d.jpg)
-The crew is very pleased from the atmosphere the city has and they will do two whole stories there.They will use the architecture of the city fully but they will also use green screen cause the city of 2010 is quite different from Paris 40 years ago.They think that Paris and their lions are "equal".
At the end of the article,they write about the citizens of Lvov who are not familiar with that kind of projects and they seem surprised by the whole procedure.They do comments like "Oh,it's Lady Gaga" etc. The last time they had a shooting there was for The Three Musketeers and they must be proud and happy of their city being chosen for this project.
