New Shoot Promo for the upcoming season for the acclaimed HBO Europe Series ‘Golden Life’ (Aranyélet).

The story is about a family that seems idyllic from outside, but the parents commit crimes for their living.
As the father wants to quit the illegal lifestyle, the children are getting more & more involved in crime.

This season we look back into our main characters past in the 90’s and see how they’d become involved in crime. Therefore the concept was to have reflections or mirrors in every setup and use them as a cinematic tool and metaphor to see that our characters’ past still haunts them in the present. Everything is exclusively shot for this Promo, no programme footage is used.
