The meeting was attended by the members of the creative team - the author of idea Hayk Avagyan, the second director Arpine Hovsepyan, people’s actors Ruben Karapetyan, Lala Mnatsakanyan, Arthur Hakobyan, Varuzhan Manukyan, as well as representatives of the new generation of actors Dalita Avanesyan, Sophie Devoyan, Karen Ohanyan, Emil Kirakosyan and others. The selection of the actors for minor roles was made via casting.
The film was made in a few months. The authors had chosen the camp “Hasmik” in Hankavan and studied the camp life. The actual filming in camping conditions took 20 days.
The author of idea Hayk Avagyan says this is the first non-profit children’s educational film, and this concern was the driving force that guided the creation of the film.
“Taking into consideration the key role of the university in our life we decided to show it here, as I used to attend the screenings of films in my student years with great pleasure,” - says Hayk Avagyan.
Artist at the National Cinema Centre Ashot Hambardzumyan added that the partnership between their organization and YSU Cultural Centre is aimed at the making high quality movies available to the public, especially the youth. In this regard YSU students are in focus first of all.
Director of YSU Cultural Centre Karine Davtyan, summarizing the meeting, said: “We have created a platform where artists have the opportunity to meet with students, something that does not happen at the cinema halls. This direct contact and communication with the audience give mutually beneficial results.”
