Karoly as a small town boy had little knowledge of his future as a teenager, so to gain some time to think he enrolled the Budapest University of Economics, where he finally met an extraordinary artform – film.
That fatal meeting made him a filmgeek, and wrote his final thesis on American film industry...
With his university degree he started as a production runner, then soon became a location manager. He joined Saatchi and Saatchi Budapest as a production assistant. He was one of the first freelancer agency producers of Hungary, he worked for almost all the major international network agencies in Hungary.
He never gave up his ambition to become a director. His weird sense of humor and emotional touch can be witnessed in his more than 150 commercials, and also in his 10 shortfilms that won several national and international awards.
His relentlessness and persistance finally made possible for him to shoot his first feature film, Liza, the Fox-fairy, a funny fairy tale for grown ups, that will be premiered in 2013.
