Childhood Planet to become planet of creativity

The far-reaching educational and entertainment programme of the Childhood Planet exhibition will be augmented this year by new events aimed at developing creativity among children and teens.

From 28–31 March at the Lenexpo Exhibition Complex, employees of the creative department of the Flying Animals charity media brand will present a series of ‘Flying Animals’ cartoons which were created as a social project, proceeds from which will be donated to support cancer patients. Entertainers from DA studios will hold master classes where they will not only demonstrate to children the process of creating cartoons (from script-writing to filming) but also provide them with the chance to try their hands at it. The Eralash St Petersburg media studios will, in turn, give members of the younger generation a chance to participate in the casting process for the filming of the Eralash film magazine. After the casting session, which will be evaluated by professional directors, the most gifted individuals will be offered media studio training.
