About J&B4 (The last and never released episode)

The editing of the final episode was finished already in 2011. The original planned release date was in 2012 with the launch of a new shortfilms distribution website of madryfilms with a new look, style and logo. Although nearly finished the project was abandoned and so J&B4 was never released officially (although finished it waited in the archives) until now. The J&B4 soundtrack was composed by Frank Loleit in 2012 and added sth. fresh while remaining true to the original theme by Máté Manczinger.

Enjoy some crazy gangster shit of the one and only original J&B series for the last time!!! and my cameo ;)

Director's Commentary (2020):

The second exercise during my first year at Warsaw Film School was to make a 2 min. "conversational shortfilm". Instead of making a meaningful, emotional or maybe a deep philosophical conversation I was fascinated by the idea of being entertained by a "primitive" conversation without any sense or meaning.

The idea turned into a full series of four episodes which we all shot on one day only and I am very proud of that. I shot the series with my good friends Frank Schlegel and Malte Schmitz (good times) and crew in Germany/Wesel. I decided to make the film in German despite it being shown to a polish audience first.

The first 2 min.-version of "Der Knall" didn't bring the great success at Warsaw Film School back in Poland I was hoping for. The grade I received was average but still i enjoyed the ride and experimenting with the genre. The german audience received it well. Maybe it was a rebellious move especially for a polish audience instead of making sth. more "european artistic real kinda thing". But it is one of the projects i enjoyed the most.

The film was selected for a film festival in Detmold and the series was shown on other events and occasions as well. It was received as a shocking but entertaining short film series.

The vulgar style and choice of strong insulting words throughout the J&B series can be funny for us although in real life it's too extreme of a language. For J and B it's everyday small talk. If you laugh, you are not primitive like J&B. Or maybe you are? I think that's what is fascinating about it, especially for german viewers who get the most out of it.

Enjoy the ride!
