I mentioned in another topic that I'm working on the final film of my BA Film course here in my hometown, Budapest, Hungary, and we've actually finished shooting it, and I'm almost done editing it. Just need to polish the sound up a bit, but I am going to publish it on YouTube in a week or so, and I'd love to show it to you people as well. It's a comedy short about a botched film shoot - the premise might be unoriginal, but I hope I could transform the familiar setting with the help of my own style of comedy, and a hint of the Merchant-Gervais style of British sitcoms, into something original. Here are a few screenshots (I'm actually playing the lead as well, the guy with the glasses):

Shamelessly She-Hulk is a low budget feature fanfilm based on the Marvel Avengers character. I filmed it in 2007-8. In April, I remastered it as a 93-minute "rough cut", and you can download it in the description of these videos.

I'm currently working on a film project which isn't done enough to be public yet, as well as a lot of commission art.

My friends and I have been working for what must be 6 years now on a short to mid-length movie centered around the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. PC game series, but by now we're mostly referring to it as a joke since we never got around to do anything serious about it... The fact that some of us moved thousands of kilometers away didn't help, too.

this is Super 16 on the Aaton XTR Prod with some nice old Zeiss lenses. we shot a combination of 250D/500T color neg. i wrote, directed, produced, and dp'd (after our actual DP dropped out..), so if anyone's interested in shooting film, and has got any questions for me, i'd be more than happy to answer!

for everything related to film (stock, processing, and transfer) we spent about $1000 and shot at about a 4:1 ratio. it's low, and near the end of the last shoot day, i definitely was a little stressed about running out of film, but we still got multiple takes of every shot i had planned. so, shooting film with a tiny budget is doable, and not really any more expensive than renting a high end digital cinema cam for a few days. An important note is that we got the camera body for free through my film school, however the Aaton's seem to rent for under $300 a weekend, so still a fraction of digital.

well i did this one a few months ago, but i don't get the chance to get my hands on a video camera too often, i made this for a tattoo artist friend, and i had my own shot at a non linear editing little narrative, i don't know if it really worked, but here it is, hope you like it a bit.

Earlier this week I got into a script lab here in Chicago thats being done through IFP for a short that I wrote. I wrote the short last year and it was originally three pages, then it was 11 pages but I got down to a very tight and lean six pages.

After the lab is done, I'm going to have some artwork done for the script and post it on my website.
