About my films:

An almost twenty-year break in filmmaking during which I worked in dozens of occupations, gave me the necessary life experience to make my films truer to life.  My theory is simple; there must be always a third dimension - extra value.  I actively participate in every stage of film production, writing screenplays, filming and editing, paying close attention to details.  Archival materials are of great importance to me, especially those that are original, just discovered. Working on a documentary is a great adventure, the fruit of which must be satisfaction not only for the author, but first and foremost for the people and facts portrayed, as well as educating the public. My next step are feature films.

 

Our first team

Eugene Starky

Graduated Cum Laude from New York School of Film and ... decided not to makes films. Why? He does not know. Neither does he know why he was involved in thousands of professions. Until one day, a film bug bit him again. His plans are far beyond what we can admire today...
