The 56-year-old director of the video recalls that Sergei Pudovkin was delighted with his work. However, for some reason, the representative of the singer did not continue cooperation.
“The producer was on his knees in front of me and admired how wonderful it was. And when I saw the next clip on TV, which I no longer shot, I was very offended, ”Yuri was indignant.

Unpleasant emotions from joint work, according to the director, left him and Alsou. In the late 90s, Grymov shot the first four videos for the young performer, including the debut “Winter Dream”.
“Alsu is a sweet, touching girl of 14 years old. When they brought her and a suitcase of money to me, I thought, why not earn some money? I did it all honestly. Do you want me to make your daughter a star? I did! It was important to me. They told me: “If she is a star, I will give you a Porsche.” The fool believed. They didn’t give it away, ”he said frankly.
Host of the YouTube show “Open, David!” asked if any of the artists thanked him for a successful start.

“Alsu didn’t even say “thank you” after filming. Do you know who is the most adequate, really cool? Valera Leontiev! I shot several clips for him and there was always some kind of lunch, words of gratitude to the entire film crew. Right now, 25 people are filming a video here, they all work for you, but for money, but for you. Some people think they can buy everything. I always believed that my performer should not hit the eye, but the heart, ”said the director.
