Sziget Festival

Reportage

Overview

The Project

A short reportage about the magic and wonder of the biggest music and arts festival in the world: Budapest’s Sziget. Set in the magical Obudai island on the Danube river in the wonderful city of Budapest, the Sziget Festival attracts every August more than 400.000 people from all over the world, that get together to share this amazing and unforgettable experience.

The Challenge

There were no real challenges or difficulties related to the shooting and production of this short reportage. The real problem was reminding us that we were in Sziget to work and not wander off to one of the many musical and arts venues around the island 🙂
