I would love to do adventure/drama and more specifically western.
What drew me into the industry initially was the possibility of creating whole new environments and settings for an imaginary world.
While I am working for my personal project my childhood inspires me, my dreams, but also the world around me.
Sci-fi/future drama post apocalyptic world creation would take all my passion.
I suppose my own unique influences provoke a spark of energy within me which motivates me to create visual medium.
When after long hard work you see that the result was worth all of your efforts it feels like you are doing right.
There is nothing more rewarding than working in a group of creative people to produce an outcome that will be watched by other people.
I am interested in the use of engineering software (Rhino grasshopper) and CNC milling and how that will change the landscape of the "Future worlds" in film. Architecture has evolved so rapidly with designers like Zaha Hadid and in some ways, I feel like filmmakers are falling behind.
The whole Harry Potter Art Department is definitely one of my biggest heroes.
I would love working on a film for children and create a world that really leaves an impression and encourages kids to fantasize and use their imagination.

I am very into creating by my hands, it is very fascinating to see how it evolved.

I am inspired by European and Asian cinema, art and architecture as well as Hungarian poetry and literature.
Stories of big productions, how did they build something they've never done before, and how (or who) came up with the idea. I love backstage stories and videos of new ideas that work on camera.
I'd like to redesign Being John Malkovich, because it's my favorite film.
My main interest is space geometry, light in the space and colors.
I enjoy researching, recreating and designing historical period.
I think we are stepless collectors of inspiration, moments, objects and ideas which we puzzle together as a new reality to revive the script.
Would love to hear some more about the work flow of different professions within the art department on bigger productions like: art directors, set decorators, prop masters , scenic painters etc.

Working in the Art Department gives us a chance to be storytellers, to build worlds, to show time and places where none of us have been before.
I love the colors, energy and feeling that the late seventies and early eighties emit so I would enjoy very much to work in a film or series set in this time period.
