I have 15 years of experience in working in television, independent documentary and short video production, mostly as an editor, motion graphics designer and cameraman.
My constant desire for learning and improving my skill set has made me proficient with a variety of industry-standard software and hardware. Troubleshooting and resolving complex technical and workflow issues are challenges that I readily take on.
I share my skills whenever possible. I give introductory hands on workshops to individuals and small groups on short video and documentary production, with focus on use of camera, sound equipment and post-production softwares.
I am a meticulous and detail-oriented person and I work well with directors and producers and autonomously, by myself.
I speak Serbian, English, French, and basic Spanish. I have worked on numerous projects involving over a dozen different languages.
I am co-founder of Trans & Sub Workers Cooperative, where I work as technician and English language spotter and subtitle quality controller.
No land, no food, no life (fr. "Sans terre, c'est la faim"), a feature documentary I edited in winter 2013, was a shortlisted for best documentary for prestigious Gémeaux / Gemini 2014 award.
The Carbon Rush, a feature documentary I co-edited and supervised the post-production of in 2011, is still being screened in film festivals across the world and has been broadcasted in numerous countries, amongst being Canada, Germany, Taiwan and Japan.
