From countless approved and rejected ideas emerged something unexpected – Bugso. Aiming for a film that would leave the viewers thinking, I wanted something that would defy audience’s expectations. From the flow, to the execution up until editing, creating this short film was indeed challenging. Taking into account every detail, maximizing and at the same time working on the limited resources, this film is crafted with patience and passion. Bugso is meant to be fathomed and defy the anticipated.
