Heino Pars 95!

In October 2020, Heino Pars, - one of the founding fathers of the Estonian puppet animation, would have turned 95. Throughout his career, he directed more than 30 films. One of his most beloved characters is Cameraman Kõps, who’s also known as Pars’alter-ego. He often shot in nature and became world-known by his natural scientific approach.
To celebrate Pars’ anniversary, the Estonian Animation Union brought his films back to the big screen on a few selected occasions. The films were also available on local online streaming platforms.
AAA took care of the press and marketing of the event. We spoke to the local press and made sure the event stood in social media.
As a result, Operator Kõps in Mushroomland, - one of the most beloved films by Pars, was viewed over 10 000 times online 🍄️

PS, you can watch one of Pars’ most legendary films, Nail I,here.
