Director, writer Demeter Lorant, born in Hungary, 1982, began his career in 1999 when made his first amateur short horror film called Picnic which was followed by a string of short films. In 2003 he made his first ’professional’ short film called Lag which got the award for best editing on The New York Short Film Festival. Lag was followed by two self financed shorts, the black and white Royal Flush and Urine, both explorations into more abstract horror territory.
In 2005 he started developing a feature film project called Block-66, sadly after two years of preproduction the project died and the script was never realized. After that Lorant ventured more into making animations, directed more than 50 musicvideos mainly for indie bands and he started to develop his skills as a projection mapping artist. In 2010 he founded Full Screen Studio which became one of the leading companies in producing visual content for events and creating projection mapping projects in Hungary.
In 2015 he finally found his way back to making horror related films, the first being Lucky Girl, an exploration into 70’s Explotation Cinema and French New Wave Extremism. In 2016 he started developing a new short called Possesed By Aliens which is going to be a lighter, more audience friendly experience, a mix between Goonies and Men In Black, but on his shelf there are quite a lot of ideas for feature films waiting for the right moment to be realized.
