I am interested in all kinds of beings, in everyday people who find a way to develop themselves, who find a way to see 'magic', how they deal with their own life, how they relate to each other, how they learn and how they teach, within and without the society that surrounds them.
I believe technology and all the different visual methods are serious playgrounds and they here to help us deliver simple, moving and also extraordinary stories.

Through the film we wanted to draw attention to basic human values like respect of life and responsibility.

Those who know me know that I have always been very sensitive to the great causes that concern the protection of humans and animals. This film denounces the mistreatment of a dog, but from a different point of view than the one usually shown. What I tried to do with this film was to develop a more introspective approach, shedding more light on their suffering and their intimate distress. The so-called "beast" is shown here as it really is: living and fragile beings, magnificent in their emotion and sensitivity.

VISUAL CONCEPT|EDITOR

This video was inspired by Conservation International's Nature is Speaking videos. I had this idea for a long time now and finally I had the time this year to finalise the editing. Sadly I couldn't go to film all the footage on my own, so I had to use footage shot by other marvellous talents out there! Narration was written by me, with the help of some of the most obvious quotes about dogs. My intention was to create something unique, without any monetisation attempts. I hope you'll enjoy it.

DIRECTOR|EDITOR

Based on Zsuzsanna Bak's novel.

" Eszembe jutott, amikor Prágában koldusnak néztek minket, és egy néni ránk terítette a kabátját. És a két sündisznó, mint két pici fenék araszolt előttünk. Ők sem fogták egymás kezét, de volt valami bájos szerencsétlenség abban, ahogy összeütközött néha a csípőjük. ,,Édes, édes Pankám, mégiscsak férfiből vagyok" énekeltem. "

DIRECTOR|WRITER|EDITOR

Based on Szilárd Podmaniczky's short story.

" Éppen arra gondoltam, hogy mikor és milyen körülmények között születtem, mikor befordult előttem a sarkon egy zöld Mercédesz, elhajtott, de dízel volt és a kelleténél büdösebb, majd amikor a grillhenteshez értem, a zöld Mercédesz megkerülte a háztömböt, és megállt a grillhentesnél. Elfogott a félsz, hogy tőlem akar valamit, az ilyen fiatal lányokat mindig elkapják, vagy a bátyám csinált valami hülyeséget megint, és rajtam verik el az adósságát, már szeretném mielőbb révben tudni a szüzességem, nehogy aztán áldozatul essen egy kártyaadósságnak vagy egy rosszul sikerült brokkolikrémlevesnek. Aztán már nyugodt leszek, nem mintha ez lenne az életcélom. "

Tough Girls Don't Dream
DIRECTOR|WRITER|EDITOR

Based on Jeanette Winterson's short story.

"The unnamed, genderless narrator lives in a futuristic, sleep-deprived world where sleeping is considered dirty, unhygienic, wasteful, and disrespectful to others. Besides, no one can afford to sleep anymore. All public spaces are designated “Non-Sleeping,” and even a quick nap on a park bench carries a fifty-pound fine. You can still sleep in your own home, but all new beds are required by law to have an alarm clock built into the mattress. Anyone who gets caught with a disabled alarm is fined fifty pounds. After three fines, you’re disqualified from sleeping for a year."

ACTORS PORTRAITS

“Good acting -- real acting is impossible to spot. Do you ever catch talents like Robert Duvall or Kathy Bates acting? No. I defy you to show me where.”

My Skills.

Directing

“Pick up a camera. Shoot something. No matter how small, no matter how cheesy, no matter whether your friends and your sister star in it. Put your name on it as director. Now you’re a director. Everything after that you’re just negotiating your budget and your fee.”

Editing

“Writing, of course, is writing, acting comes from the theater, and cinematography comes from photography. Editing is unique to film. You can see something from different points of view almost simultaneously, and it creates a new experience.”

Photography

“The photographer is an armed version of the solitary walker reconnoitering, stalking, cruising the urban inferno, the voyeuristic stroller who discovers the city as a landscape of voluptuous extremes. Adept of the joys of watching, connoisseur of empathy, the flâneur finds the world 'picturesque.”

My References.

Alex Graves
Director

During my career I have been the executive producer and/or director of American televisionseries. With those experiences in mind, I would place Zsofia among the most professional and talented people that I have had the pleasure to work with.

Gyula Gazdag
Director & Prof

I can only highly recommend 'Pinkler' for your support, as well as its writer/director. During our sessions and informal conversations I realized that Zsofia is thirsty for learning about the ways she can improve the screenplay and her mind is open to suggestions and ways to find creative solutions to problems.

MJ Basset
Director

She worked enormously hard and fulfilled her duties with energy, commitment and good humour. Her training as a film student and director proved valuable to me and I engaged her on a few occasions to direct the 2nd Unit to shoot some material.

Ildikó Enyedi
Director

Rendkívül fontosnak tartom, hogy nehézsorsú fiatalokról sok jó film készüljön. A nézők számára nehezen befogadható témát a 'Pinkler' ritkán érzékelhető mélységben dolgozza fel.
