Chuck Norris and the history of "The Fortune"

For the first time you can watch "The Fortune", the most final recreation of "Blind Fate" in HD.

The project of "The Fortune" was launched in November 2009, when I was bored with extended length of "Blind Fate", my first film with Chuck Norris impersonator. The screenplay was written for 20 mins long film (it had 20 pages, the standard industry ratio is 1:1). However during the shooting we filmed additional sequences, which probably added 5 mins of extra screening time. Later again, during the editing, some scenes were further extended, since many times we were filming with two camera setup. Thus the whole story became half-an-hour long film. It was very slow, mystical, deep, and some people even liked that.

However I felt that the poster was a bit misleading. Some Tao/Zen/Native American philosophical quotes were okayish, but after all the viewers were expecting classic Chuck Norris movie - so why the pace is so slow?

You've asked for this! It's more than 10 years since Talarkino studio has started making action movies and it's a good reason to celebrate. Ultimate indie action-comedy is on!

On July 28th the first shot of "Deadly Recording" was... recorded. Take a look below at this fast-paced De Palmesque short flick filled with cynical characters and mind-blowing plot, which was filmed in only three days!

Experience the film-within-a-film-within-another-film complex story about an indie film director played by... another real-life (and award-winning) indie film director Bodo Kox ("The Girl from Wardrobe", "The Man with the Magic Box"). The villain here is played by Adam Szyszkowski - known from Oscar winning movie ("Ida").

Talarkino's Premiere - APART (2017)

Shooting the very first scene on Cracow's Main Square, 18/12/2005
Our first and most re-known picture "c@ught in the net" was shot over a week preceding Christmas in 2005. Twelve years later we present the restored version titled "Apart". The major plot was restructured thus now we dive deeper into relations between love-triangle without being disturbed by omnipresent web technology from previous version of the movie. 

Moreover, the picture was once again (after 2010 short version "In the net") restored, this time with re-arrangement of lightning and blowup to HD. Each scene was re-edited using alternative angles, dialogues and out-takes. Beside visuals and plot, the main change is also introduction of jazzy Bossa Nova soundtrack licensed from Paris Music, which makes the story so much lighter and more romantic. Enjoy watching!

(the film will be present here over limited period of time)
