Camera Zizanio

Ευρωπαϊκή Συνάντηση Νεανικής Οπτικοακουστικής Δημιουργίας

Do it like Artemis!


A few days ago Artemis submitted her film to Camera Zizanio. Artemis is only 10 years old and made the film all by herself. The interest part it’s not her clever screenplay (a snail travels around the world in 2 min) but the additional information:

 “I like to make short videos when I’m alone and don’t have friends around to play. I made this film last spring, as it was the time we had many snails in our yard. Family and relatives loved this film”.

Wonderful children using their spare time in a creative way.

Camera Zizanio is here to highlight all youngsters’ creations.

Deadline for submissions in 16th Camera Zizanio – October 15th.
