I Stefan is an upcoming feature film on the fragmented life of an art creator. I Stefan is filmed in a guerrilla Covid-compatible style. #istefanmovie
For artist Stefan and his carrier one thing is certain: he refuses to be smothered by the mediocracy surrounding him. Vlogging is Stefan’s weapon of choice to hypnotize his audience.
I Stefan is directed by Beata Staszyńska-Hansen and Onno Hansen-Staszyński. Beata, as a graduate from Łódź film academy, created documentary films, music video clips, and more but never directed a fiction feature film before. Onno’s film background is limited to directing one feature film when he was 17 and then retiring until now.
I Stefan is an experimental film. It was mostly filmed intuitively with an action cam (TomTom Bandit, no longer in production) without using a display or viewfinder. It was filmed without film sets or a film crew.
The filming process followed all Covid regulations of the moment.
