SOCHI, February 08, (ITAR-TASS). An opening ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games in the southern Russian city of Sochi became the most highly technological ceremony for the last 20 years, chief creative producer and author of the script of the Olympics opening ceremony, Director General of Russian TV Channel One Konstantin Ernst told a news conference in the Russian Winter Olympic capital.
“We wanted to show present day’s and tomorrow’s Russia. Most people in the world did not expect from us such a highly technological show. I watched all Olympics for the last 20 years, therefore, I can say confidently that there was no such show there as we staged. It was important to show that Russia is a different country from that the West thinks of it. Media is a perfect instrument. But we should take what they are writing with a pinch of salt,” Ernst said.
