Our team used everyone’s favorite pets (cats and dogs) to come up with a fun and educational video that teaches children and adults the Russian Alphabet. We have given it a casual feel to preserve the fun and keep an open atmosphere to make learning easy and fun.
Lucy, Cookie and Pumpkin star in our educational video. Here is a little background on the stars of our show:
- Cookie (the tall and the thin dog) is a 2-year-old rat terrier.
She is great at learning new tricks but gets easily distracted. She is a fast runner, others find it really hard to catch her. She is really smart and knows her recall commands very well.
She loves to play and tries to turn any opportunity into play-time.
- Lucy (the short and chubby dog) is a 6-year-old rat terrier.
It takes her little longer to learn a new trick but her performance is much steadier.
Lucy is a more laid-back dog, she doesn't like to walk and hates to run.
We try to get her to exercise daily.
- Pumpkin is an 8-year-old cat. She is a very tiny cat and only weighs 5 pounds.
She tries her best to learn the Russian Alphabet. Pumpkin is a very funny kitty cat.
She can be playful and a troublemaker at the same time, and she loves her pets.
It took a lot of work to train Lucy, Cookie and Pumpkin to
understand tricks and perform the different behaviors as seen in the video.
We had to break down the tricks, and employ a lot of treats and toys. Learning
Russian also takes a lot of work. First step to learning Russian is to break
it down into different parts. We begin by learning the Russian Alphabet.
We are hoping that you will use this video to start learning the Russian Alphabet.
We also used many props while shooting the video.
We used children’s clothes to dress Lucy and Cookie,
since they fit them perfectly and have much more fun designs than dog outfits.
We also had to tailor the outfits.
Our favorite outfits are the ones with a Halloween theme.
Cookie especially loves to dress up, and you can see that in the video.
We used all of our Russian Alphabet products - our Russian Alphabet Cards,
Russian Alphabet poster, and Russian Alphabet Book, in our video as well.
We built a little stand to display letters and the corresponding stuffed toys.
We had to be creative with some words that do not have corresponding stuffed toys.
We have used voice changers to make dog voices sound fun and more childlike.
We also used some automation for video introduction.
As a result, we ended up with a very fun and educational video.
You can see that all our heroes in the video enjoy playing their part.
They loved their training sessions and they loved to star in the movie.
And as you watch the video you can see it shows…
We created two Facebook pages: One for Russian Alphabet Cards and second one is for Russian Alphabet Poster.
Here are the links:
Russian Alphabet Cards
Russian Alphabet Poster
We invite you to like both of these pages and stay connected with us.
We are currently working on the second video.
And of course, it will be an educational video and this video will
star your favorite Russian learning heroes – Pumpkin, Cookie and Lucy.
In this video we will try to connect letters into the words and we will
learn how to count. This will be our second educational video
and the second step to learning Russian.
