At the end of 2020 we are looking back to the results of this year which has passed away fast with a lot of work, despite the pandemia. The Hungarian Filmlab has participated in the post production works of 20 Hungarian and international feature films...
Lili Horvát’s “Preparations to Be Together for an Unknown Period of Time” has been selected as the official Hungarian entry for the international feature film category at the Academy Awards. Analogue and digital post production of the film shot on 35 mm was carried out at the Hungarian Filmlab.
The experimental short film Cold Meridian was screened last weekend at the film festival in San Sebastian, in the section for „surprising and attractive film proposals” called Zabaltegi-Tabakalera. The short film shot on 8 mm and 16 mm film was directed by Peter Strickland, who has worked with a Hungarian crew for an umpteen time. Cold Meridian shows the disquieting side of the ASMR phenomenon, the popular genre that operates with normally relaxing sound effects performed on online platforms. The DOP is Márk Győri, producer is Dóra Nedeczky, the analogue post production was done at the Hungarian Filmlab.
Shooting on 16 mm film has begun for Erasing Frank, the Hungarian director, Gábor Fabricius’s feature film. The historical drama approaches the socialist dictatorship in a unique way. It tells the story of Frank, a charismatic singer in an underground band, who, in order to keep him quiet, is closed by the regime in a politically-motivated psychiatric institution.
Kodak interviewed Mátyás Erdély on the American production, The Nest. The feature directed by Sean Dirkin was shot on 35 mm negative in Kanada, the USA and then the UK, and finally, the 35 mm print was made in Budapest, at the Hungarian Filmlab. It was a pleasure again to work together, this time, on an international project.
