Zoltan was the supervising sound editor, foley artist and sound designer for the stop motion fairy tale in which an aquatic creature tries to win the heart of a sea-witch.
Speaking about the challenges he faced in the making of Fishwitch, Zoltan said: “There were many sounds that were not straightforward in how they should sound - we had to imagine and create them. We needed to make up things like the sound of magic and a fish singing underwater.”
He added: “I think our film won because we paid meticulous attention to all the little details and we were very precise. We also focused on storytelling, trying to trigger people’s emotions.”
