The team at CAMA were thrilled to work with the UK production crew on Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, Netflix (2020).
Thank you to Steven Johnson, Production Co-ordinator for his kind words about our service and systems:
“ CAMA is a great resource, so much more than just a storage facility. Their online portal really is a cut above the rest. The accessibility makes this a production office’s best friend. Every item is catalogued, categorised and photographed. The entire process reduces hours of production labour and resources.”
In these challenging times we need a celebratory film to lift our spirits! Particularly as the UK slowly starts to reopen and lift restrictions.
As the NY Times states “The Eurovision Song Contest consistently manages to unite Europe and confuse America”. And appropriately the film is packed full of real-life Eurovision references, to please avid fans of the show.
“There’s a sequence at 46 minutes into the 123-minute Eurovision that stands as one of the most enjoyable cinematic sequences in any film this year. It’s a somewhat stand-alone musical “sing-along,” where our main stars mostly sit back and let a collage of other musicians and actors do a lively and non-competitive version of those “sing-off” scenes from the Pitch Perfect movies. I’m nowhere near knowledgeable enough about the lavish and often visually dynamic European singing competition to have recognized the likes of Bilal Hassani, John Lundvik, Jamala, Alexander Rybak, Netta Barzilai and Conchita Wurst. But the scene is a joyous celebration and a chance for actual past winners to hog the spotlight for a few minutes” Scott Mendelson, Forbes
