Single Images can make us feel, put together they take us on a journey.
Feri travels across Europe with his son Dani. What seems like a father son road-trip turns out to be a quest for revenge for a terrible accident. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4188858
This was inspired by a terrible accident where two young children were killed but the Irish driver (at that time) wouldn’t return to face justice in Hungary. As a father, the anger I felt at this injustice prompted me to write this script which was then funded by MTVA in Hungary.
A surreal comedy about a slapping obsessed folk dancer who paints symbols on his shoes to make his moves a little slicker. Juiced up with over confidence he tangles with the wrong guy. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0970927
On the surface it’s a film about logos and obsession but it is full of imagery about the clash of culture and nationalism. This 3 minute short film ended up winning the Madrid Experimental Film Week, I didn’t realise it was a experimental film!
When this Guardian competition came up, it was just before I shot Travel Buddy and was a good opportunity to warm up. It’s super simple film, just the four of us as cast and crew but what I like is that every character changes.
A corporate film about accidental child deaths. I had just had my first daughter so this was a subject close to me. I like that we turn back time, very simple precautions can save lives.
Boxworth’s Big Idea:
At Jam Film we won the first Inaugural Entrepreneurial film awards with this short film. There are times in everyone’s life when you have a good idea that the no-one appreciates. My writing partner Andy, in the title role, proves that he can act his way out of a cardboard box!
This was an experiment in telling a story without dialogue in a single long take. In real time everyone clashes in this film with hardly a word spoken. All the relationships are different by the end of the three minutes.
Upcoming: Hasa Vitte Haza:
Actress Kata Sarbo brought her grandmother’s story to me and we collaborated with DP David Lukacs. I usually only work on films I have written myself but this was such an honourable challenge to take Luca’s own words and tell this love story based around world war two.
Still in post-production.
Upcoming: Untitled 360:
This new technology is a fascinating way to place you right into the story. I’m planning an experiment soon to see how to make a narrative work when the viewer can look anywhere in the frame!
Here you can see a corporate film I made using the same technology. Try it out with your phone in a cardboard viewer!
