They call me a ‘jack-of-all-trades’ filmmaker. I make films, animated ones too. And I make them with anything that I can get my hands on. The ‘little cinema’ I have prepared for the Salon will show you several short pieces of varying quality. I’ll describe them here:

1. Shopping bags, 4’, and 2007.

A movie made in one continuous shot. I have never made a film more easily. Dušan Makavejev, my filmmaking role model from my youth, sent me out at the beginning of his workshop to bring him, in two hours, a finished film of one minute in duration.  I followed a shopping bag fluttering in a wind. Then another bag joined. I woke up and so did my camera. A third bag took my breath away. Even if I had real actors and a screenplay about a love triangle I couldn’t have directed it like that.

2. Voice of Life, 3’, 1997-2014, a promo trailer for an old, student movie

I was ashamed of this movie for years. I never screened it for anyone. It was made in my third year of film school. It was a futile attempt to make a ‘real’, normal, movie in, what were for me, traumatic, ‘professional’ conditions. But this kung-fu martial arts movie trailer, with all the tinkering that new editing, music, sound effects, narration and graphics can provide, has made this oddball and somewhat boring student film into something attractive. In this way I have slyly rewritten a part of my filmmaking life.

3.  Of Slaves and Robots, 3’ 2015, animation

Part of the Radiovision project: animated shorts based on audio gems from the Radio Belgrade archive. In this one, legendary maths teacher, Radivoj Kašanin talks in 1968 about freedom in an emotional appeal to future generations.  I listened to it and started animating it in an associative manner in order to ‘paint that picture’. I got a little carried away.
