There are only a few regions in the world where the skies meet the Earth with almost no distinction between the two. La Palma in the Canary islands is one of them. ‘Entre Ciel et Terre’ literally means ‘Between the sky and Earth’ and was a perfect fit here. While most of the volcanic island is isolated under a thick layer of clouds, the tip of its crater often punches through it and allows you to be one step closer to the Heavens. At an altitude of about 2300 meters above sea level you feel so far removed from any kind of civilization especially because of the cloud inversion. The air is thin and pristine and the living conditions are harsh but that’s the reason why the ORM (Observatory Roque de Los Muchachos) -operated by the IAC (Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias) and part of the European Northern Observatory, was built up there. The summit of La Palma’s caldera benefits from dry and clear skies almost year round with almost no light pollution to disturb it, and only rare Calima (this dusty wind coming from the Sahara desert). It’s safe to say that the ‘Isla Bonita’ is one of the top places in the world to observe the northern hemisphere’s night sky! The purpose of this short was to capture that special place from a different perspective. I really wanted to give the audience sort of a confusion as to where they are because that’s precisely the feeling you get when you look up at the stars from the mountains. You somehow lose sense of any orientation as if you were lost in the immensity of the universe! One image that I had in my head to describe La Palma’s summit was Asgard or Mount Olympus, where all the elements are united and blend together divinely. Even life found a way to survive in this environment bombarded by high-energy rays during the day and battered by cold winds at night. One highlighted species is the fascinating and mind-boggling Tajinaste flower. Also called Tenerife Bugloss or tower of jewels, this docile and resilient endemic plant can endure extreme drought. I included it in the movie because it looks majestic and prehistoric. It really adds something special to the special atmosphere I wanted to convey, especially when the milky way galaxy and the sea of clouds move in the background! By tracking the night sky or displaying the sequences upside-down I was able to give that impression of the Earth floating and rotating in the void of the cosmos. The unusual but innovative close-up views of some parts of the milky way (including the core, Rho Ophiuchi or Cygnus) moving behind the operating telescopes of the OMC helped me give that only human dimension to the movie. The use of an astro-modified camera also enabled me to almost get the full range of colors a DSLR can pick up on single frames from nebulae. I already traveled to La Palma island in November 2017 but I really wanted to shoot there again for several reasons. First I really wanted to get more shots of the core region that would be less spoiled by light pollution than the ones I recently took on Tenerife. Secondly I desperately wanted to meet the extremely talented photographer Alyn Wallace (check him out: and do a collaboration with him on the island. Thirdly I am still on my way of perfecting the novel art of deep-sky time-lapse and I wanted to reshoot some sequences that didn’t give satisfying results in the past. Finally I wanted to personally experience the Spring vibe of the island when all the plants are blooming and give that sweet smell to the air. I am absolutely thrilled to have met all my expectations (and more!), and I really believe the results look stunning! Everything was recorded with the Canon 6D Baader modified, the Sony a7s, the Sony a7rII and a variety of bright lenses ranging from 14mm to 300mm. I used the Lonely Speck Pure Night and Matt Aust Light pollution filters to reduce light pollution and increase details, and also the Vixen Polarie to track the stars and get cleaner shots. Syrp Genie 3 axis system was used for motion control. All post production was made in Lr with the special timelapse plus plugin, Sequence for mac, TLDF, and final production was made in FCPX.

Faroes Islands are a truly spectacular place for photography, such an amazing location, with a lot of drama on its cliffs and a really amazing light. This time it has not been really easy to do this work, because to reach the most famous sites like Drangarnir, Traelanipan or the lighthouse of Kallur you have to walk long distances on a complicated terrain due to its inclination, also the photographic equipment and the drone weight’s, made it very hard. Practically the entire trip was planned with the help of the Photopills application, which it is possible to know the movement and time of the Sun, Moon etc ... as well as many utilities for photography. About the camera movements, I used the new and lightweight slider called Scout, made of aluminum, a great tool to perform magnificent movements in a simple way. Las Islas Feroe son un lugar realmente espectacular para la fotografía, un lugar increíble, con mucho drama en sus acantilados y una luz realmente increíble. Esta vez no ha sido realmente fácil de realizar este trabajo, ya que para llegar a los mas famosos sitios como Drangarnir, Traelanipan o el faro de Kallur hay que andar largas distancias sobre un terreno nada fácil por su inclinación, sin contar el equipamiento fotográfico y el drone. Prácticamente todo el viaje fue planificado con la ayuda de la aplicación Photopills, con la cual es posible saber el movimiento y horario del Sol, Luna etc… así como muchas utilidades para la fotografía. Para el movimiento de la cámara he utilizado el nuevo y ligero slider llamado Scout, fabricado en aluminio un gran herramienta para realizar magníficos movimientos de una manera sencilla.

349 (short dance animation, 3:05) Created with hundreds of pencils and hundreds of hands, "349" is a collaborative animated dance film that explores the idea that we're all imperceptibly connected. To create "349," a dance performance was videotaped and converted into a series of still frames. Over the span of two years, 349 different people each redrew one of these frames after being asked to "draw yourself and someone with whom you have a significant connection." The resulting drawings were scanned, sequenced, and synced to music to create the short animated dance film. 2016 New Orleans Film Festival, New Orleans, LA; 2017 Film Society at Lincoln Center + Dance Films Association's Dance on Camera Film Festival, New York, NY, and National Tour; 2016 Cucalorus Film Festival, Wilmington, NC; 2016 Paris International Festival of Animated Film, Paris, France; 2016 Tallgrass International Film Festival, Wichita, KS; 2017 Dance Camera West, Los Angeles, CA; 2017 Topanga Film Festival, Topanga, CA; 2016 DCTV + Dance Films Association's Long Legs Short Films, New York, NY; 2016 Dallas VideoFest (Jury Prize for Experimental Short), Dallas, TX; 2016 San Francisco International Festival of Short Films, San Francisco, CA; 2016 Video Art And Experimental Film Festival, New York, NY; 2016 Salamanca Moves MOVE-ies (Audience Vote Winner), Hobart, Tasmania; 2017 Third Coast Dance Film Festival, Houston, TX, and National Tour; 2016 American Dance Festival's Movies by Movers, Durham, NC; 2017 Denver Film Society Women + Film Festival, Denver, CO; 2017 Cascadia Dance & Cinema Festival, Vancouver, British Columbia; 2017 Experiments in Cinema, Albuquerque, NM; 2017 Cine Corps Paris, Paris, France; 2017 Capitol Dance & Cinema Festival, Silver Spring, MD; 2017 C.A.R.

-SYNOPSIS- The visual world rests on interviews, the sound of which follows through the film as a narrative. We follow the story of five immigrants in Budapest, two of whom still lives here as refugees. We touch upon various levels of their refugee life from the banal to the very severe. In economic theory random walk means that stock market prices cannot be predicted. thus, each time, the price had a fifty-fifty chance of closing higher or lower than the previous day. -FESTIVAL APPEREANCES- 2016 / 2nd Hungarian Film Week - official selection Mediawave Film & Music Festival - official selection FESA / Festival of European Student Animation - panorama program BuSho / The Budapest Short International Film Festival - panorama program Fantoche International Animation Film Festival - panorama program GRAFIXX Festival Antwerpen - panorama program 23rd International Animated Film Festival KROK - official selection KLIK!

Every spring the summit of Mount Everest draws people from around the world. But in its shadow live the Sherpa, a resilient, religious people, who, despite the riches surrounding the highest peak on earth, are still quite poor and uneducated. A child of the Khumbu, Apa Sherpa climbed Everest 21 times. Pulled away at the age of 12 to work as a high altitude porter, like so many others, he would leave his family for months, risking his life on the mountain. Through his work at the Apa Sherpa Foundation, he aims to create a different future for his people. As Apa says, "without education we have no choice."
