We are making a film

About the project "Saratov - the Open City" the participants of the circle "Young Journalist" of the Eastern European Lyceum learned from the story of the director of the Festival Center, editor-in-chief of the Nizhnevolzhsky newsreel studio Tatyana Viktorovna Zorina, with whom we had a meeting at one of the January classes of the circle.

The task of the Project - the creation of a large site with hundreds of video stories about interesting places and people of Saratov by the Saratovites themselves and people who love our city - interested and inspired young journalists. After discussing everything, the circles decided to create several video excursions for the site "Saratov - an open city". The first to do it took girlfriends-sixth graders Varya Nikulin and Masha Korovin. They began to make a film about the Spiritual Church, the parishioners of which are the Varina family. Varya acts as a screenwriter and director, and Masha is shooting as an operator.

We are very grateful for the help in preparing the material for the rector of the Temple, Archpriest Sergiy Dogadin and Archpriest Sergiy Xenofontov for taking part in the shootings and an amazing excursion to the bell tower of the Temple.
