As exciting as this was, ten dollars doesn't really do much.

Attila Kallai, Executive Producer spent many hours filming at the events using two cameras and carefully tracking the speakers and understanding the proceedings of the conference. He spent many more hours editing and preparing DVD’s for distribution to participants, including superimposing PowerPoint presentations into the video of speakers and adding titles and subtitles. He created the graphics and printing for the DVD case to illustrate the conference's intent.I have no hesitation in recommending Attila Kállai and Atka Films Inc. to any individual or organization. Dr. John C. Moss - Principal Consultant, UBC ​ ​ CHERRY BLOSSOM(annual art festival, documentary creation) Vancouver Cherry Blossom FestivalI found Atka Films to be available, reliable, innovative and open to incorporating ideas.Attila is extremely dedicated to his art form, personable and passionate about his work. Whatever the weather he was always there with the camera, capturing the essence of the true beauty of the "Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival". Atka Films delivered a quality, wonderful video with a fresh look at the annual festival. Linda Poole - Creative Director, Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival ​ ​ MINISTRY FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES(Drop In Centre for Street Youth) I have very much appreciated Attila's dedication and insight during the development of this project(Drop In Centre). He has also shown himself to be a trustworthy and hard working individual.One thing that is certain about Attila is that he loves film. He talks about film almost constantly and he is always animated and excited when talking about a new filming, editing, or acting project he is working on. There is no doubt in my mind that the entire process of creating a film is his deep and committed passion. Though I am not a film critic, I have been told by those who have greater knowledge than I, that Attila displays skill and insight on the camera, when editing, and when acting.It is my pleasure to attest to the excellent character of this inspired and inspiring young man and to confirm that he is not afraid of the hard work that is often associated with the creative process. Lyle Jones - Social Worker, Ministry for Children and Families ​ ​ METAMORPHOSIS(short film) Attila never failed at a deadline during the production when I was fortunate to have him on board. Self-driven effort and experienced confidence mark this person truly unique, a great partner.The amount of care and time he puts in is unbelievable.I would not hesitate to work with Attila again.

    JUST ACT FILMS ATKA FILMS REALITY ATKA FILMS 2 AF+ ATKA FILMS ABOUT PROJECTS STREAM SIGN UP CREWING/CASTING FILM FUND AF+ JUST ACT FILMS JUST ACT FILMS is an overflow production company for Atka Films for the short projects that are not green-lite under Atka Films. These projects are all shot on an ultra low budget-and or volunteer basis; all participants are volunteers and producers who work together as a team; in a CoOp environment. With a mind set more to challenge people to really think about how to get a project done, when a budget is tight or non-existent. Just Act Films is also now taking over more primarily as Distribution for Atka Films and it affiliates. Just Act Films was created more as personal group driven production team; to give something back to people who struggle to get projects off the ground. It's a mentorship group in ways, educational, and equal share. You can read all the details by downloading the PDF's. The projects that are created are not designed for mass market appeal or even designed to be in festivals or to get distribution by large corporations; based on mass appeal and glitz. They are stories that have a deep impactful message, which is what these projects focus on as opposed to image and ever-all design. But that does not limit these productions to be left and forgotten-as distribution to the festival circuit, tv, and other are always on the table.

PRODUCTION NOTES some productions may have already been released by another company in previous years; some are brand new productions produced by us or others and we are just the acting distributor. Release dates are dates of our distribution not production dates. Atka Films 2 is everything we have ever produced not released for festivals or on your main channel which are mostly films which are scripted and produced at a higher quality. Most of these are more videos than films or movies, and some are from when our producers where in school(college, high school). Merely just the idea now: why create something if you're just going to put it into a drawer. And it reminds us that there is always place to improve and move forward and to be humble. WE may also at times be credited as depending on circumstance T.E.A.M.(Together Everyone Achieves More) Hell Yeah Productions First Touch Entertainment Atka Films Post Production Services Atka Films Catering

This plays into the obsession of the character Edward; but also mirrors the OCD of the character Elizabeth. -The original trailer was created in 2007 in hopes to release the film that year. The release has been delayed due to technical problems. since 2009. -development began in early 2004. -the second cut came in at 4 1/2 hrs (2010). -the first cut of the film came in at 6hrs; give a few minutes (2009). -due to major complications(program failure, for example) the film was put on delay (2007). -crazy credit: "Male daughter", this is the directors sense of humor, but it also plays into the film and the hundreds of nuances included -director(Attila Kállai) can be seen in the nightclub scene walking around in the crowd, along with lead actors Jennifer Huva and Juniper Omoniyi. -In 2010 filming(there were only a few scenes left to shoot with actor and personal friend Denis Simpson, but scheduling conflicts kept arising) to complete all outstanding scenes with actor Denis Simpson was delayed once again and incompleted, as actor Denis Simpson passed away. His final scenes were not completed and the task of re-working the script was at hand. -The lead character Edward is suffering from a terminal illness-in a twist of art imitating life(script was based on true events) and life imitating art(lead actor Attila's life); the actor/producer/director Attila who portrays Edward is also fighting an illness(since 2013). -Lead actor Attila never intended on being in the film. -A lot of the lead cast and crew joined in as Background Performers in the nightclub scene. A tripod keeps appearing in the film, and so much so that eventually the crew kept placing the tripod in the scenes as a "Tripod". The Tripod has been credited. They have also given names to the rest of the film equipment; such as Jose and Jos-B. -One of the final scenes of the film had to be shot weeks later, and the lead actress Jenifer Huva painted her nails which could be seen in the shot. So the director-connecting it to her character just simply asked Jennifer to pull her sleeves over her fingers and play the scene like that. -The end of the film there is one credit which in an anti-credit; this is not usual but it has been seen before in Scream (1996). The credit reads "JORDAN GRUYER - NO THANKS whatsoever"; this was because this actor walked out in the middle of shooting deciding he was no longer interested in performing what was written in the script and decided to begin to change what was written; and as further discussion went on about sticking to the script, eventually the actor left and did not return any phone calls. To save the shoot and thousands of dollars, Producer Attila was recasting 4 roles at midnight, six hours before call time. Eventually what came out of the situation was actor Kevin Richardson was cast who ended up also working on their next project "F.Y.T."(2008). ​ REVIEWS/PRESS TOP Cast JENNIFER HUVA - Elizabeth @JenniferHuva ATTILA - Edward Hubert @actorAttila JUNIPER OMONIYI - Sophie KEVIN RICHARDSON - Darrel Nash @TheKevinJosef DENIS SIMPSON - Father David TODD OBERG - Tom/Justine Tyme DIANE SIEMENS - Christine Hubert HAMISH CAMERON - Lawrence Brookworth @HamishSr TANIS PARENTEAU - Rayne @TanisParenteau LAUREN ROBERTSON - Angelica GAEL ALLEN - Elizabeth Age 60 JIMMY ANDERSON - Drug Buyer STEPHEN ARCHIBALD - Psychiatric Doctor ISTVAN LAZLO BÉKÈSSY - Himself(archive footage) BOBBY BURROWS - Mr. Huber/Dancing Man DR.
