Zsolt Luka's pioneering achievements in multiplatform online/broadcast entertainment have reinvented the genre. He broke new ground as a one-man broadcast production "unit" on Around The World For Free, producing, directing, editing and delivering daily webisodes of the unique, audience-driven global journey for a non-stop six months. His technical savvy also made it possible to deliver live weekly satellite videoconferences to major US networks from the most rugged and underdeveloped corners of the planet. These same cutting-edge production techniques he also used in Rach to the Rescue, an online road trip capturing the spirit of America for Rachael Ray's participating audience.
Parallel to his online innovations, Zsolt Luka's past decade in television produced hit children's shows, Peabody-winning documentaries, and plenty in between. He edited and directed the much-loved children's shows Prank Patrol, Mystery Hunters and Popular Mechanics for Kids. His work on Great Hotels earned him an Emmy nomination – and his editing on the visually compelling documentary Braindamadj'd: Take II garnered the film a 2007 Peabody Award, the 2006 NHK Japan Grand Prix and a couple of Canadian Geminis.
Zsolt's recent broadcast projects include the Around The World For Free prime time HD series which aired on WGN America in Spring 2009. Having already directed and DOP'd the production, Zsolt served as senior editor and post production supervisor on the eleven-episode series. He has also been busy with web and immersive media projects centered around the Boy Scouts of America's 100th anniversary 2010 celebrations.
Prior to his career in entertainment, Zsolt worked as an interpreter and a human rights lobbyist. He spent his childhood in Transylvania before moving to Toronto. Presently he divides his time between North America, Europe and Asia.
