I have been working on adding links to the official websites of a lot of people who have worked on various projects with VDO to the blogroll at the right of this page and in doing some research I stumbled onto the website of László I. Kish.
I know you American fans are asking yourselves “who in the heck is László I. Kish” so check this out:
The resemblance is startling isn’t it? Other than the hair color of course…
László I. Kish is a Swiss actor who speaks many different languages, English, German and Italian being but three of them. László (who is only 2 years older than VDO) also writes and directs movies and you should watch his reel and his video clips at his website (the text is in German but I’ll walk you through this):
Go click on the number “4 Galerie” at the bottom of his webpage to see László in his multilingual “Demotape” (click on the word “abspielen” (play) under it, it’s on the right hand side of the screen)
Does his acting style strike you as more than a little familiar (even when he’s not speaking English)?
How about his resemblance to a 1980s era Paul Masson commercial-appearing Orson Welles in the “Run Rabbit Run” videoclip (click on the word “abspielen” (play) under “Run Rabbit Run”?)
Or how about the many photos of László on both the Galerie (Gallery) and “5 Logbuch” (Log Book) pages, especially his ‘Dune” photos at the latter link (the photos are on the left edge of the page)?
So what is Kish’s connection to VDO?
László snuck under all our radar screens playing “Angus” the fisherman in “Salt On Our Skin”/”Desire”.
And here I though I was paying really good attention when I watch VDO’s movies. LOL!
Now I’ve simply got to figure out how to see the entirety of that short film “Run Rabbit Run”…what a great performance!
