Best Hungarian shortfilm posters 2016

Good to be with my film, Indian amongst the 15 best Hungarian shortfilm posters of 2016. Design by Frank Rizzo. Such a nice company with Sing / Mindenki, the fresh Oscar-winner. Congrats Kristóf Deák!      

Projects in progress

ANIMATION »» Kövér Lajos színre lép is almost in production. We are finishing the script and storyboard these days, and starting to draw, do papercuts, make collages. TV DOCUMENTARY »» Margitfilm is in post-production (I’m just drowning in archive footages and a massive amount of shot materials.)

Shot with a “Hubble Telescope”?

My next shortfilm, Banality  is in pre-production. A very complicated and visually challenged project. One uninterrupted shot, 100+ extras, touch story. Look our beautiful camera, isn’t it a Hubble Space Telescope? It is a DigiPower lens that can 99x zoom – similar like broadcast cameras in Champions League matches.
