Lenexpo on film
A public service advertisement is to be filmed at the ‘Festive Decoration. Advertising and Information’ Forum.
The Forum, which is taking place at Lenexpo on 24–26 April, will give participants and visitors the opportunity to participate in the process of creating a public service video. They will not simply be watching from the sidelines, but will be members of the crew: actors, lighting technicians, and assistants. On an open, specially designed indoor set, directors from Giraffe Film Studios will take volunteers through all the stages of the film production process, from writing the script to editing the finished clip. At the end of the shoot, Forum guests and participants in the filming process will be shown the final result.
