Opening the Reality

Guest speaker: Marcel Łoziński

"Reality is more interesting than my imagination."

During Łoziński’s masterclass we watched some of his short films. Then director talked a little bit about behind the scenes of his productions. He shared some interesting facts and inspirations which motivated him to choose this topics. Łoziński made some films with help from his youngest son Tomasz, director shared some stories about working with child on set as well as a family member. Overall Łoziński’s advice was to be patient, every documentary film director needs to be observant and prepared for unpredictable obstacles which could change the course of whole project.

"In documentary film you can Get gifts from God or as I call them gifts from Reality."
