1. Your project has
entered in our festival. What is your project about?
it’s a love fairy tale situated in an indefinite time.
2. What are your ambitions with your project?
To be seen, more Awards will be welcome :-)
3. Tell us something
about your shooting? What pleasantly surprised you?
Possibilities of such a simple and basic programme as an Effect 3d Studio, a web gif designer programme, it needs frame by frame work, and computer stop animation, which is good.
I used to use completely different software from film to film, for example on my awarded experimental film Q1 I made all drawings on Windows Paint only, every filmmaker knows that Windows paint is not the right software for animation, but I tried and did it well as it seems.
4. For what group of
spectators is your film targeted?
Didn’t have that in mind during working on the film.
5. Why should distributors buy your film?
I made "V" for my pleasure, and music too and really enjoyed both, montage was a challenge, and also how to pay attention, how to have enough motivating and dynamic music for certain scenes, and how to keep both stories in balanced, outer space and computer screen.
6. How would you specify your work? What characterizes your film?
Research in one word. My music definitely, and my painter's way of scene composition, and colours.
I am a professional painter long time, a musician, and a registered active composer.
7. Why did you decide to become a filmmaker?
Can’t remember, I got as a gift from my parents for my 11th birthday an amateur Eumig 8mm camera, a very good small camera with many possibilities that bigger cameras had at that time.
Before that I was fascinated with movies, I was drawing much, making " films " on paper roles.
8. Who is your role model?
I have many.
9. Which movies are your favourites? Why?
All Kubrick, all Krytsof Kieslowski, Coppola, David Lynch.
Not enough space for an adequately precise and understandable to everybody answer here.
10. Where do you look for inspiration for your films?
In life, I’m an artist, it’s possible to find inspiration everywhere even when you are not in an inspirational mood.
Books, films, music, life situations, voyages, surrounding, news, documentaries, women and friends of course. ..
11. Which topics interest you the most?
Invisible not touchable sometimes explainable sometimes not but present excitable things like intuition or love.
12. What do you consider your greatest achievement in your career?
Knowledge about the results of my work and what comes after a period, years, sometimes decades.
13. What do you consider most important about filming?
Idea and story definitely, "That something" if possible.
14. Which film technique of shooting do you consider the best?
Depends on the film, for short movies is not necessary to have a 70 mm film camera, I often use to keep a pocket handy camera with me, HDV or 4K with enough quality, You never know.
I think the idea is most important not tool quality, with better tools comes better ideas.
15. How would you rate/What is your opinion about current filmmaking?
I am not the right person to answer this question as I am not following trends, and I don’t have time to follow recent productions.
Will be cool to be more involved in everything, I would love to, but unfortunately, I don’t have enough time.
16. What can disappoint you in a movie?
Lack of story and mistakes is what You don't expect from a serious filmmaker, like bad montage between scenes during dialogue, let's say.
17. Who supports you in your film career?
Everybody who loves me, who loves my films, my paintings or my music.
18. What are the reactions to your film? (opinion of spectators, film critics, friends and family)
As I could see from the audience's reaction while I am playing live, having paintings exhibitions or while I am watching my short films at the cinema, reactions are positive, good, and sometimes very good.
19. Have you already visited any of the prestigious film festivals?
Yes, a few European. Submitted to a few not European "top 15" waiting results.
20. What are your plans for a filmmaking career?
I am working on 2 feature shorts, one experimental and a few animated short films ¸working on music for them too.
