SPOKEN PRODUCTION -- Activities, strategies, and opportunities to consider


Somehow, all the major festivals are trying to convince me of something, something they want from me. Festivals are against or in favor of something. But itís much cooler when people go to forest for a week just to drink, have fun and offer honors to Beaver. Some persons even come to us at night and in the morning drove to work - this is the limit resistance. That is the real festival. There were about sixty people in 2012 on our fest. It was cool.

That is, in general, and all I wanted to tell about the festival, we are developing and sincerely hope to develop into something worthwhile, to attract more good and interesting people in our beautiful Kola land.
