My name is Lorand Balazs Imre. Amongst other things (CV), a multifaceted creator with a profound passion for filmmaking, tirelessly striving to excel in this art. Born in 1979 in Balassagyarmat, Hungary, my fascination with stories began at a young age.

My academic journey took me through literature and journalism, shaping my understanding and appreciation for storytelling. Between 2001 and 2004, my years in the United States were transformative, deeply influencing my identity and my appreciation for freedom. In 2008, I ventured into a creative partnership by joining and redefining the SpeakEasy Project in Budapest, Hungary.

Our collaborative efforts bore fruit: our first web video in 2010, followed by our inaugural documentary in 2013, and another in 2014, which I had the privilege of directing, among other projects.

Embarking on a filmmaking career later in life, I find myself driven by two core motivations: the pursuit of personal excellence and the desire to contribute positively to my community. For me, creating value is paramount.

I perceive life and the world through the lens of narratives, convinced of the transformative power of storytelling. In today's world, motion pictures serve as a universal medium, a shared language that allows me to explore and influence our collective reality.

Directing my first documentary in 2013 marked a pivotal, enlightening moment in both my personal and professional life, affirming filmmaking as an indispensable part of my existence. Now residing and creating in Berlin, I have founded SpeakEasy Project Berlin and subsequently, filmDOUGH.berlin, as my dedicated outlets for producing documentaries and commercial visuals in this vibrant city.
