Group Description:

“For 10 days we will be working on a short fictional form. We will create a script based on a short story by Łukasz Orbitowski entitled: Bloody Lolo. On the first day together with the author of the text we will prepare a thriller script, choose actors and film locations. The modern Sony Venice camera is a great tool. We will get to know it, of course, but the most important thing for us will be a film as an artistic work, a practical realization”, says Marcin Koszałka.
