Zoltan began as a journalist whose research on mass media, particularly TV shows, became a reference still used a decade later by most Hungarian university studies on the topic. That success led to his founding a production company with his partner, Ivan, where they have both excelled. Though initially specialized in documentary production, they soon realized the market potential in Hungary and widened the scope to service productions of genres including commercial, film, TV, corporate, and still photo.
Dmitry started work in video post-production in 1995 and within a few years was producing small-scale commercials art-house style. His skill set soon saw him move into line production at Radioactive Film, where he worked as Head of Production until 2003. Being the hands-on guy he is, Dmitry left to found a small production house for the local market called Anomaly Film.
That company soon expanded to service international projects, and by 2006 Dmitry facilitated local services for his first action feature film. The crises of 2009 compelled Dmitry to reposition and rebrand his company on a larger scale that could cater to different markets for added sustainability. In-house staff grew from a half dozen to 25 employees at his production house and casting studio. Shoot days have surpassed 100 a year since 2010.
Today Dmitry is EP and partner of his own companies as well as the PSN Ukraine Partner with capacity to produce and service commercials, documentaries, music videos, TV series, feature films, and more that are shot in Ukraine, Georgia, and Kazakhstan. Dmitry is always at the ready to personally lead an international service project with his full attention focused on adapting to client expectations in order to offer cost-effective solutions that uphold quality service.
