VODBLISK Talk: Artsiom Lobach

Talks Volia Chajkouskaya
"Every single frame should amaze the viewer"
Volia Chajkouskaya spoke with a Belarusian film director and music video maker, Artsiom Lobach, about his path to filmmaking, working on Belarusian MTV, star fever, and cinema as a means of building meanings. And, in parts, about simply building stuff (once Artsiom spent the whole filming day DIYing a wooden staircase —if this is not Belarusian cinema, then what is?).

What kind of intense filming process is this when the woodshed just burns down? Why is the film crew so important? How does the film script affect a person seeing it for the first time? Watch the new VODBLISK Talk to find out.
