Sergiu Lupse

Director / Visual Artist / Animator

Cluj-Napoca, Romania
"I want to try not to repeat myself. But then I seem to do it continuously in my films. It's not something I make any effort to do. I just want to make films that are personal, but interesting to an audience. I feel I get criticized for style over substance, and for details that get in the way of the characters. But every decision I make is how to bring those characters forward." (Wes Anderson)
