Dalibor Matanić, together with producer Sanjina Staničić and screenwriter Magdalena Lupi Alvir, presented the video, talking about their ideas behind the recording and the numerous city locations that became "movie centers" during the project's realization. Scriptwriter Magdalena Lupi Alvir pointed out that the whole idea for the promotional video was to combine a number of different city locations with the city's well-known characteristics to depict the city's image.
Director Peter Škarpa thanked all of the participating partners on the realization of the project, and he gave special thanks to the Croatian National Tourist Board and it's director, Kristjan Staničić, who made the call to co-finance the implementation of such a demanding project.
Kristjan Staničić congratulated the whole team on their creative efforts and stressed that is has a high artistic value and most importantly - it raises emotion.
