Rio in Antigua . The video was filmed by director Russel Mulcahy ( Highlander ) at various places around the island of Antigua in May of 1982. The yacht scenes were film…ed on the bay at English Harbour, the beach scenes at Miller's Beach and Shirley Heights.
The yacht in the Duran Duran video is a 1936 Fife yacht called Eilean. Regularly confused with Simon Le Bon's former yacht Drum (which at the time was a state of the art 1984 …IOR maxi yacht), Eilean is a wooden classic that has fallen into a serious state of neglect since the video was shot.. She has been recently purchased by an Italian watch company and is currently undergoing a complete restoration. Eilean is expected to be relaunched in 2009..

\nI believe the model for that shoot was Virginia Anne Douglas, a heartbreakingly beautiful woman who retired from the business at an early age (despite an abundance of offers…). The video was shot in Huntington Beach Park, California and it's theme was a wedding (with Ms. Douglas as the tender goddess of a bride).
Two of the models on Duran Duran's music video "Girls on Film" wereKate Moss and Naomi Campbell. The other models names are not listedanywhere.
After searching for such a long time, I can finally say the mystery is finally over. her name is Reema Ruspoli. Reema married an Italian prince. I did a google search and saw …her at the L'uomo vogue 40th anniversary, 100 percent this is her. She has three boys and is still married to the prince. I know there has been many people trying to find Reema, and she def isn't Tula.
Andy Hamilton played the saxophone in the studio recording (and on tour), but in the video, filmed in Antigua, it is bassist John Taylor miming playing the sax on top of the c…liff, and keyboardist Nick Rhodes doing the same (while nearly losing his balance) on a raft in the shallow waters off Shirley Heights.
I'm not certain what you mean -- are you referring to a specific Duran Duran music video? The models who appear in some of them are known, and some aren't. If you're referr…ing to the members of the band, they are: . singer Simon Le Bon . keyboardist Nick Rhodes . bassist John Taylor . guitarist Andy Taylor or Warren Cuccurullo (depending on the era) . drummer Roger Taylor
Duran Duran's 1981 "Girls on Film" video was directed by the team of Kevin Godley and Lol Creme. (They also directed the band's 1985 video "A View To A Kill", for the James Bo…nd film of the same name.)
American model Myka Dunkle, then 17, played the female sex robot in the "Electric Barbarella" video. She was chosen by director Ellen von Unwerth. Models Sophie Dahl and De…von Aoki also make brief appearances as partygoers near the end of the videos.
Don't know... however, Duran Duran is a music group most popular in the 80s. . Duran Duran also is the name of a character from the Jane Fonda movie "Barbarella", that is whe…re the band got the name for the group.
a rubbish band;never listen to them
To make a long answer short, I don't know the exact date of its first airing on MTV, but it's likely to have been sometime in August or September of 1981. For more detail: … The video for "Planet Earth" was filmed in late December 1980, not long after Duran Duran signed with EMI and recorded their first album Duran Duran . It was directed by Russell Mulcahy (later to direct feature films such as Highlander ) in a film studio in St. John's Wood in London. The video was aired on various video programmes in the UK, Europe and Australia starting with the single's release in February, 1981; in fact, the "Planet Earth" single reached #8 in Australia on the strength of the video and video-prompted radio play (the band had never toured there). MTV itself was not launched until August 1, 1981. "Planet Earth" and the censored version of "Girls on Film" were among the videos that MTV put into occasional rotation during their first year, but the band and the first album were not initially very successful in America and the videos weren't played heavily. The "Planet Earth" video didn't receive a lot of attention until the band's second album, Rio , began climbing the charts in 1982. When the blockbuster videos from that album (such as "Hungry Like The Wolf", "Rio" and "Save A Prayer") went into heavy rotation, the first album had a resurgence in popularity, and was eventually reissued in the US with the new song, "Is There Something I Should Know", which also had a very popular video. During this year the video for "Planet Earth" reappeared on MTV and was seen for the first time by many music fans who had missed it in 1981.
