Today let’s head off to Russia and take a tour of the Soviet era film studios. Lenfilm and Mosfilm were the two largest movie studios of the Soviet film industry and after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, both became quasi-private film production companies that still produce hundreds of films a year. This abandoned flooded town is part of a Lenfilm film set. Rather than using special effects, the studio is making movies the old fashioned way…!
