Milica Cerović and Vuk Tatalović are behind the staging of this years Serbian entry. Milica Cerović previously choreographed Montenegro’s performance at Junior Eurovision 2015. Milica explained:
We tried to follow the lyrics of the song and its meaning, but the animation was fairy-tale – we didn’t want to be scary, because it’s Eurovision. I think we have found a good degree in which the video work follows the lyrics of the song.
I’m very glad that this song is about this kind of thing that is happening on our planet, that I have this stage performance and that I will have everything I want on stage.
