Hide and Seek Criminal Drama Presented at SERIESSERIES

On July 2nd, ‘Hide and Seek’ criminal drama series was presented in France at SeriesSeries festival. It has a huge success.

“In my opinion, we had an interesting conversation about project creation, work on the script, improvisation, casting, defending the budget and creative solutions inside the company as well as about Ukraine and Ukrainian market in general. After the presentation we got lots of feedback about strong style and visuals of the project. We had directors, screenwriters and producers from different countries – Italy, Sweden, Germany, France, and others – coming up to us. I feel we have made a lasting impression! The organizers told us that 150 works were submitted. We were the only Eastern European project accepted though there were series from Russia, Romania, Bulgaria, and other countries,” – said creative producer of the project Olesya Lukyanenko.
