A few concepts were drawn up, but we went with the idea of a 19th century Russian duel. That seemed fitting, given that both of our protagonists are, in essence, poets and such ways of resolving differences between 19th century bohemian artists, as we know, were quite the norm.
For the second and third clips our writers came up with the idea of scripts in rhyming lyrical form. The exact lyrics were left up to the artists within the rhythmical guidelines (metric lines, such as the iambic tetrameter) provided by our writing team. Noize MC ended up substantially altering his lines, while Shnur only made a few corrections, since we managed to replicate his style better basing it on the myriad of songs and lyrics of his authorship available online.
