Dentist Vitolis Laumakys and engineer Adolfas Morėnas have met accidentally in the street, while Adolfas was repairing his motorcycle. During a short chat, they found out about each other’s admiration for the cinema. Adolfas revealed he had got a 8 mm film camera – so, they’ve started filming. Meanwhile, by chance, they found out about empty spaces in Kėdainiai Culture Centre – bit by bit, the men installed there everything what they needed for the professional filmmaking. In 1962 the amateur film studio called “The Amateur” was established. In some years it has become the most successful and famous Lithuanian amateur film studio.
