Zsombor Huszka Producer, Co-Director, Artist
At the age of 18, Zsombor Huszka was a professional fencer for the Hungarian National Fencing Team. In 2012, he earned his MSc in Architecture and Engineering at Budapest University of Technology and Economics. After his first art exhibit in 2010, he was chosen to participate at The National Exhibition of Digital Artworks. Since then, Zsombor has worked as a 2D animation director and illustrator.
Zsombor is currently providing all of the artwork for the film Separation, starring Rupert Friend and directed by William Brent Bell (The Boy, The Devil Inside). His hand-drawn title sequence for the film Suburban Cowboy was nominated for Excellence in Title Design at the 2016 SXSW Festival alongside studio hits Spectre, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Netflix’ Daredevil. His subsequent title sequence for the Orient City short film was nominated in 2018.
As an artist, he collaborated with Ryan Colucci on R.E.M., which debuted in the fall of 2013 and became a huge crowdfunding success on Kickstarter. He also provided artwork for numerous graphic novels such as Rylend Grant‘s Aberrant, Noah Dorsey’s Saint Chaos, Ninja Genesis by Brent Cote and safeKill by Craig von Wiederhold. He has worked on projects for a variety of Hungarian pop stars, such as animating the music video Love is Overrated for Linda Kiraly, directing the music video for Viktor Kiraly’s Chasing Demons, and illustrating several Hungarian advertising campaigns. He provided all artwork for With You, an album and subsequent film by Grammy-nominated EDM artist Dirty South. The film debuted at #1 on iTunes in the fall of 2014.
Zsombor's other passions are composing music, playing the harmonica and his cigar box guitar and training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Illustrating samurais, ninjas and kung fu fighters has always come to me with ease. Besides the overwhelmingly positive reaction from fans at conventions, I just have a fondness for them that I can remember as far back as my childhood. Most of these drawings do not present the image of the warrior in its traditional form, but always mixed with other fields of pop culture: mostly western. It was over the last few years that Ryan and I started to put these images together and build a story around them. We wanted to put these characters in their proper environment... Orient City
We cannot wait to bring this world, its spectecular fight scenes and its inhabitants to life.
