Chuck Norris and the history of "Wealth"

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

However I felt that the poster is a bit misleading. After all they were expecting Chuck Norris movie - so why the pace is so slow?

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)

4K: connect! online! interactive!

Dear Friends, exactly two years ago we won the Audience Award for "Disconnected" at Sundance Channel Shorts Competition (check here). It was screened there for a few weeks in shortened (10 mins.) festival version. After two years of visiting some other festivals and buzzing in the social networks now we proudly present it on-line again. This time forever and in full length (15 mins.), as it was originally envisioned.

But to make it even more special - and after thinking about deconstructing the material - you can experience the film in an intensified 4K format (for that just change quality in youtube settings: bottom-left corner of video) with all characters on the screen all the time! And you can play it even in a loop, since history likes to repeat itself. The idea for such synchronized plots came to us when we were thinking about exhibiting the film in art galleries. Well, here you go - you can enjoy it virtually now via on-line streaming!

If it's too much for your brain to focus at once, you can follow each character's path at separate videos. In an interactive player you can even switch between separate/connected stories without the need to start watching from beginning. In this form you are free to compose your own personal experience like a VJ (Video Jockey). And there is also a traditional one-by-one version featured in a shape of a playlist.

Enjoy four ways to watch "Disconnected":
