Today on the YouTube channel of the music publishing house “Zvuk-M” a clip was released Eldar Zhanikayeva @eldar_zhanikaev for the song “Amanat”, which tells about the brotherhood of the Karachay and Balkarian people, about the values bequeathed by their ancestors and about the adat, which the highlanders truly honor.
In the video shot by director Magomed Kumykov, panoramas of indescribable beauty of the Caucasian nature open before the audience, and against its background - the strength and courage, courage and valor of Caucasians, whom nature itself submits to.
The artist spoke about how and where the video "Amanat" was filmed.
Eldar Zhanikayev told about how the shooting took place, what difficulties he had to face, and whether he was satisfied with the results of the work done ...
- Eldar, the clip was shot in Karachay-Cherkessia and Kabardino-Balkaria. In many frames, you can guess that the process was somewhat extreme ... So it was?
“If I say that I did not experience jitters when I first stood on the edge of the abyss, then, of course, I would lie.” But the thirst to impress with spectacular shots was stronger. Moreover, I am “taulu” (Balkarian), which means “highlander” in translation. And there was no time to think about the danger, because Elbrus, on the background of which the shooting took place, does not so often look out of the clouds and makes it possible to capture yourself in all its glory!
- And with bison, probably even more difficult? No one was hurt during the filming?
- The bison were filmed in the Teberda Alpine Reserve. For this, a whole horse expedition was equipped. Bison live in inaccessible places. Therefore, it was necessary to wade through mountain rivers, to wade through windbreaks. The operator Murat Dzuyev was attacked by the leader of the herd. Murat lost vigilance for a second and was attacked by a 600-pound giant. Fortunately, the bison did not hit the horns of either the operator or the expensive camera. Having escaped with a slight fright and small abrasions, the brave operator continued to work after a couple of minutes. By the way, the camera recorded the beginning of the attack of the forest giant ...
- Very interesting! We will wait for a separate video from the shoot, with frames not included in the clip. Tell us about the heroes of the video who got the main roles.
- For the shootings, we invited famous athletes: Abdul-Halim Olmezov, who twice climbed the highest peak of the world - Everest and more than 100 times - to the highest mountain in Europe - Elbrus, and Marat Uzdenov - the famous athlete from Karachay-Cherkessia, the world power record holder. I was inspired to work with them. With Abdul-Khalim we all ended up together in "his element." Very grateful to the actors for their participation!
- How satisfied were you with the result? So in your mind this clip was "drawn"?
- Yes. These were three unforgettable shooting days in a team of professionals and great people. I am pleased with the work done and look forward to the feedback of the people for whom we tried!
- Thanks for the conversation, Eldar! We congratulate you on the premiere, and we invite our readers to watch the new clip of Eldar Zhanikayev - "Amanat" right now!
