11) Agent Fresco: Silhouette Palette

The Icelandic quartet Agent Fresco were here in Budapest doing a gig arranged by Soundkitchen who asked us if we wouldn’t be interested in trying to do something while they were here. We made a few calls and arranged a quick shoot an hour or two before the gig in the nearby ‘Design Terminal’, (a 1950s bus terminal now acting as a center for culture and design). Throw in a bag full of Audio cassettes I found scattered on the streets the day before and you get our own little light bulb universe.

10) Quimby: Legyen vörös

We had wanted to shoot with Quimby for some time, and were in fact talking it over when Kiss Tibi came and sat at the table next to us. I reminded him that we had worked together many years earlier and explained our idea. Thankfully he was excited as we were about the whole thing, and the idea circulated back to the rest of the band.
This is just around the time of Quimby’s 20th anniversary, when they had their stadium anniversary concert.
Again we wanted to do something narrative, somewhat like what happened with the Hangmás shoot except with more stories. We built up an old nineties style bar. and populated it with players from the Grund Színház, Budapest’s premiere improvisation theater company.
In the end it was as Kis Tibi described it, a miraculous moment. A kind of Live private concert and theater happening at once. An event that happens and then disappeared into thin air. Of course that is why we brought the cameras.

Additionally you can find some interviews with the band made for us by Szabó Szonja here and here.

9) Nouras Motoc: O cafea amara

We have heard Nouras’s voice and his guitar drifting down the budapest streets for some time now. More often than not near tram stops or train stations. We took him down to the front of the old Bem Mozi and asked him to play us a song. He uses a single battery powered amplifier from which everything is broadcast, usually with a dreamy dose of reverb. The song ‘O cafea amara’ likens life to a bitter cup of coffee. He sings it with a bitter sweet lilt.

8) Hangmás: Luna

The 8th Anormal session. We shot quite intensely, there was little over two weeks between this and the next piece and this time we decided to take the live music video concept in a different direction. Like the upcoming piece, Luna is a kind of fusion short film/live performance. We shot primarily in one 18 hour day, starting with our actress Nori, running barefoot in the forest chased by our Operator wielding a pretty heavy camera tethered to two camera assistants. Lots of falling, lots of scratches.
We were approached a few months earlier by Hangmas, specifically their manager. They played a few tracks off their new album. Luna stayed with me as did the word Lunatic , meaning one who is possessed by the moon.

7) Harcsa Veronika and Gyémánt Bálint: Moss and Lichen

Bálint and Veronika gave us a beautiful piece to work with. Veronika wrote the lyrics in the woods and we shot the video in a basement cave. At first listening it struck me as song about symbiosis, we drew up a concept that would be simple and complimentary. In the end we decided to focus on the moment between moments. Our production manager and I spent the evenings digging out bricks from the location. it was like unwalling a secret underground world. Just as Veronika was walking in the woods, we were travelling in the dark, Our path lit by our Lighting camera woman Csepeli Eszter.

6) SoulClap Budapest Ft. ILLspokinn: Let’s get it together

So Judie Jay tells me she would be singing with an amazing MC from NY city and that I should make my way down to listen. Well sure enough the stage was on fire.We put it out there that we do something together and the man was game. For backup he suggested SoulClap Budapest, He had jammed with one of their members the night before (Bognar Szabolcs) and was keen to work with him again. The thing was Molnar Adam had booked him for a brief trip, ILLspokinn would be leaving in four days so we had to pull something together in three. SoulClap hadn’t heard the lyrics, ILLspokinn hadn’t heard the music, and we hadn’t seen the location or heard either. Our cinematographer Györi Márk and our colorist Juristovszky Tamara  rustled up some magic out of thin air. And all this shot on our production managers birthday. A true collaboration, recording sound and image on the fly a:normal style.

5) Palya Bea: lüktetés

Sunny day, perfect tree climbing weather. We have shot for a while now and we are coming to a wrap, Time for one more. Palya Bea and our camera Woman Csepeli Eszter climb a cherry blossom… Bea and Eszter sitting in a tree, S – I – N – G – I – N – G.

4) palya bea: szép szemű szeretőm

Calling the airport, checking the weather, windy rainy every day they say, but it had to be that day, the only day that Bea was available. And of course that was the only day with perfect weather. We went for something stripped down, just Bea and the birds at the foot of the old Castle in Budapest’s first district. Throw in a little voodoo magic from our operator Eszter Csepeli and you get this very pink session… All untouched footage, its amazing what a little coloured cloth and glass can do.
