The story of THE DEVELOPER originated from Hungarian cartoonist/filmmaker Robert Odegnal. This film is his work in all respects. From the birth of the idea through the detailed screenplay development and thorough pre-production, production and post-production of the film, Robert did basically everything. He imagined this world with its characters; he drew the storyboard based on his own comic; he even attended screenwriting and directing courses to bring his vision alive as professionally as possible. Robert worked on the post-production side as well regarding the compositing and coloring of the film.
I met Robert at the Central European University‘s screenwriting course. We were classmates. The storyline of THE DEVELOPER lay on pieces of papers and sketches on Robert’s desk at the time. As trailer director my job was to create a very dark feeling and the stifling, post-communist atmosphere that make the audience curious about this surreal sci-fi film.
My small part in THE DEVELOPER story is a tribute to Robert’s gigantic work, his prestistence and devotion to making his dream come true.
I am honored to be a part of this film and I’d like to say thank you to Rick Savage for the amazing sound design that he created for the trailer. I hope you’ll like the film and I truly believe that the story of THE DEVELOPER will be continued!
