He has been making scientific educational films, nature films and feature documentaries for the pat 2 decades. The theme of most of the films is the natural gifts, the wildlife and the geology of the Carpathian Basin. Schools and universities use his work as educational materials (Szet István University), scientific conferences screened his films, and his images of the Tisza mayfly were shown in the series of BBC/ David Attenborough: „Life in the Undergrouth” and „Forces of Nature” .

There is a phantom lurking in the forest. It is almost impossible to spot him, but his traces give him away. His footsteps in the snow tell us that he was heading towards the valley. The hole with the dry leaves was his ambush during the day. And the leftover of the prey shows what he was hunting for. As we follow his traces, we get to know the forest where he lives. We walk through river valleys, canyons, sunny crags and misty hills – this is the Northern Low Mountain Range, a transition zone between the Carpathians and the Great Plain, on the border of Hungary and Slovakia.
