About this submission

A teenager stumbles upon a big red button. He presses it. Boom! An Instagram notification pops on screen: "You have 152 new followers." Soon the button fulfills every wish. Driven by his greed, he becomes the wealthiest person on the planet. However, his actions have an effect: all this money was siphoned from the federal budget. BAM! A bomb explodes in the street. People protest against the government. A fully realized civil war rages all over America. What is the boy going to wish? Is he going to fix society, or is he going to do something else?

I directed my first short film three years ago when I was 16. It starred some of the well-known Bulgarian actors and its supporting media campaign was nationally covered. Since then I have taken on various different projects, including other short films, music videos, exhibitions and even established a charity clothing brand. Currently, I am working on a new short film, which is planned to be released near the end of 2019.
