LEGACY DOCUMENTARIES

Do you want your life and achievements to be commemorated? Do you secretly wish a film will be made about YOU? You might be happy to hear that I make LEGACY DOCUMENTARIES!

LEGACY DOCUMENTARIES are created as a film-legacy for any entity—individuals, families, companies, non-profits, artists, geographic regions, schools, etc.—that understands the power of a 30-60 minute movie that focuses on paying homage to and celebrating the accomplishments of the film’s “star.”

There is no need for you to wait for anyone to "discover" your amazing story and then spend years standing by while a producer is trying to get the picture made. With LEGACY DOCUMENTARIES you put yourself in a position of power to decide how your story is being told on the big screen.

Beautifully-crafted, quality LEGACY DOCUMENTARY films are not to be confused with standard videos, videography, or iPhone movies. With 35 awards under my belt and the title of “Hungary’s most successful documentarian,” I guarantee a high-end product with outstanding value—a film only a professional director can make.

I personally love making movies because the stories I tell with motion pictures are not only seen by many today but will also outlive me. They will inspire and empower people years after I’m gone. Your incredible history also deserves such a future which is the real value of LEGACY DOCUMENTARIES: to live on forever.

If you need to make certain that I know how to make movies, you may want to take a note of my eight-time-award winning documentary, Torn from the Flag, a film that was invited to the United States Congress along with 21 festivals. The picture I made with Oscar-winning Cinematographer, Vilmos Zsigmond, and legendary cinematographer, Laszlo Kovacs, participated in the Oscar competition in the "Best Documentary" category.

In addition, the following notables appear in the documentary in person or archive footage: Mikhail Gorbachev, former President of the Soviet Union; Ronald Reagan, former President of the United States of America; Henry Kissinger, Nobel Peace Prize-winning former United States Secretary of State; Otto von Habsburg, last Crown Prince of Austria-Hungary; George Vassiliou, former President of the Republic of Cyprus; William Taubman, Pulitzer Prize-winning Political Scientist and Author; and Mark Kramer, Historian and Program Director of Harvard University's Project of Cold War Studies.

Clients who are interested in placing an order for a LEGACY DOCUMENTARY are to fund the full budget that’s required to make a serious film. I feel if anything is truly worth investing in: it is sharing your journey and legacy with your family, friends, and community.

Also, once you have your own LEGACY DOCUMENTARY completed, you never know what news outlet, book publisher, broadcaster, or celebrity will decide to interview you, publish your biography, show your LEGACY DOCUMENTARY on television, or develop it into a major Hollywood picture. If you have a genuine calling to share and promote your story on a bigger scale, having a LEGACY DOCUMENTARY made is a necessary tool.
