Last weekend brought the fans of the director two good news simultaneously – the long-awaited premiere of the video According to Freud (Po Freidu) from the same-name video album of Max Barskih, and the video No (Net) for Polina Gagarina was recognized as the best at the Russian Music Awards on RU.TV channel.
Alan Badoev could not attend personally the award ceremony on May 25 hosted by Moscow Crocus City Hall
Charming Polina Gagarina received a samovar statuette, thanking to Alan Badoev for “magical, wonderful, incredible clip”.
It is worth noting that two works by Alan Badoev – No (Net) for Polina Gagarina and Light of the Sun Setting (Svet Ukhodiashchego Solntsa) for Valery Meladze were presented at the same time in the Best Video category.
The presence of two and sometimes three clips by Alan Badoev in one category of musical awards is a kind of good tradition, firmly associated with the name of the Ukrainian director.
We shall remind that in 2011, at the debut award ceremony, Roman Viktyuk handed Alan Badoev a special prize “Best Music Video Director”.
