Marina Submarina – How do you make a movie, when you aren’t a grown-up
One day, Marina Submarina decided to shoot a great movie about pirates and monsters. With her grandpa and friends, because one can’t do everything on their own. What’s more, it was loads of fun with them.
Marina even took a secret oath on the carousel with Jonas and Chris that would never go to school again because they would already know how to make movies! And so they didn’t spend holiday climbing trees and riding bikes, well, all right, they did, but only a little! But they were thoroughly looking for the film crew and actors, scrambling costumes, making up the plan, arranging placing for shooting and, of course, shooting!
