I am an independent filmmaker, primarily a cinematographer, based in Sinj, Croatia. I showed interest in films and photography from a very young age.
I try to bring amazing passion and excitement to everything I do and try to use new techniques and love experimenting on every new project I make to challenge myself and to improve the quality of my work.
I made my first film in 2009 with a couple of my friends. That film was soon followed by numerous other films, each having a different shooting style and different style of cinematography.
We had to shoot a scene where a guy is running away from some dudes and the wewanted it to be as immersive as possible. One of my friends had this idea of the camera being one of the guys in the chase to which i responded: "That's a great idea, we are doing that."
So it came the time to shoot and it was just the most amazing thing I have done. I was in there with the camera, jumping over and off walls, running through people, pushing them away, going in between cars (we were shooting guerilla style so no one even knew that we were shooting a film, which made the scene even more amazing).
I remember that I wanted to get a in front of the runner and see his face, but there was a wall around 10 meters away, so what I did is I ran in front of him, jumped and while I was in the air turned around and kept running backwards and that moment alone is just amazing.
The film isn't finished yet, but when it gets finished I'll make sure you guys can see it :)
I know that they are being used for quite a while now, but I see more and more long takes in films and TV (1+ minutes)
