We gues, you know them well. The former was nominated for an Oscar for “Black Hawk Down” by Ridley Scott, the latter learned the art of cinematography on the set of “Rush” with Anthony Dod Mantle.

The plan goes as follows:

“After a break, we return to Przegorzały to test modern language solutions in practice using the equipment provided by our technological partner ARRI. We want to shoot the scene together with the participants of the Group, experimenting and testing modern solutions for genre film. It’s a good moment to write down your ideas/scripts so as not to waste time on discussions, and start the shooting as soon as possible. Our goal is to make one or two scenes: from the initial idea to the final editing and VFX effects. “
