Director Statement

THE LUNATIC is a student debut short feature horror film involving polish artists in Poland and in the UK as well. The film was finished in 2010, however, the open and end credits animation both with music original score and film poster designing was produced between 2020 - 2022.

At the time of directing and producing The Lunatic in Cracow, the director's film vision wasn't able to be achieved due to many difficult aspects.
Finally, in 2020 the project re-borned luckily again, and was finished successfully in September, 2022 according to the original director's cut idea.
