The shooting of series “Death of a Fashion Model” has ended

The post-production of the retro-detective series “Death of a Fashion Model”. The series is produced for channel One. The shooting mainly took place in Moscow and the last days the crew spent in Chelyabinsk Oblast.
The project was very challenging: the script took 5 years to write and the shooting lasted for half a year. The artists did a phenomenal job of recreating the costumes and decorations of the 70-s in order to dive into the atmosphere of the time. We congratulate everyone who took part in the project with this step!

Actor, Sergey Bezrukov: – It is sad to part with Bessonov, but all projects end at some point. I often get asked whether it is easy to get out of the role after the shooting. Not always. Sometimes it’s hard and this is the case here. Half a year in this role while being in the 70-s atmosphere - it feels like another lifetime.

Vasich has no acting education, before "Danube" he worked in the warehouse of a book publishing house. For the role, he quit a job, learned Russian, and mastered the basics of juggling.

Director, Lyubov Mulmenko:

- “Danube” is not only a Russian-Serbian love story, but also a lovingly filmed guide to non-tourist underground Belgrade. The plot is integrated into the documentary environment. Belgrade is a very charming and cinematic city, and its inhabitants are as artistic as they can be - in addition to professional actors, ordinary Belgrade residents acted in the film. The Danube soundtrack is also a guide to Balkan music ranging from folk songs to Yugoslav rock and young indie bands.

Actress, Nadezhda Lumpova:

- This is a film about a type of love, when there are fundamental differences between the two loving people. This "difference" simultaneously pushes the characters towards each other and creates obstacles in the development of their relationship... The film is about trying to escape from their habitual hole. This is why my heroine is humanly close to me, and as an actor, I am also very interested in her path.
