"The images are the mirror of the soul. They reflect the creator's mood through his work, picture the events and everyday life via his own eyes."
"If you need to talk about the artist Yiannis Kostavaras, you mustn't restrict only on film editing which he's been serving for many years.
Yiannis follows the renaissance logic of homo-universalis, knowing that rhythm, composition and flexibility are meaningless without art.
Besides, montage as one of the directions of a movie is not only a stage for its completion.
Yiannis is aware of this and he owns the gift to illuminate the whole from the partial. With passion and enthusiasm, he manages to inspire his partners with abundant strength in a lot of cases but also with modesty.
I am privileged to co-create with him and i'll have to admit that i have found a companion in our film journeys."
