They have been making documentaries since 2010, mainly in Transylvania. The Hungarian folk traditions are at the center of the topic. Apart from documentaries, they participated in several video clips and commercials.

At Pentecost, when the nature changes to green, the streets of Siklód dress up for celebration as well. The coming of the Holy Spirit in the village is a celebration of the children, so they do not have to go to church. According to tradition, on Saturday, the children clean and decorate the barn. On the first day of Pentecost, they gather in the barn, and put on the traditional festive clothing. The celebrating crowd of children traverses the village, then they play, dance, and drink.
