Director Biography - Illés László

I'm from Europe, Hungary, 29 years old. I started to make short movies and stop-motion animations when I was 13. During the years I've directed commercials, music videos, and other professional works, and I use to work as a 1stAD in bigger movie productions. My dream is to direct feature films in Hollywood. The Basement is my first feature film, it was financed through Indiegogo. It has an ultra low budget, but we did our best to make an exciting and scary movie. Hope you will enjoy it!
