"I have always perceived knowledge as the key to the complex equation of my world. As a mathematician I believe that professional reward does not come with discovering truth, but in seeking it. As a director I uphold the idea that Art is an illusion which helps us grow aware of the truth. As a dreamer I promote the right of young people to be activists and change the world for the better now."
For the last 4 years I have developed in-depth knowledge of the film-making process as I produced and directed several narrative fiction and documentary projects. Throughout the production of these films, I have been responsible for things like directing, producing, running crowd-funding campaigns, editing video content, administering schedules, and creating efficient workflows for the crew.
INTUS ET IN CUTE
Film (short) Writer, Director and Producer (in development) “The mirror of my imagination is broken in two one half shattered into pieces…imagination is the path to singularity without it we surrender to conformity to be bound together and crushed like trash under the grasp of reality…”
A COMMON CONNECTION
Documentary (Documentary) Director/Producer/Co-Editor The film explores whether two strangers can be connected through the random people they know. Paul is a blind software engineer from Glasgow who loves to visit the local art gallery. Grandma Dobrina is a housewife from a small village in Bulgaria. She speaks only Bulgarian and spends most of her time with her hens. The film follows a journey starting from Paul with the idea of reaching Grandma Dobrina through several connections. The film explores how people can be defined not by their social habits or national belonging but rather by their actions, desires and personal motivations. The goal of the film is to show the way we connect with and "sense" each other in a human manner and how a camera and the film making process can capture this. The film is an experiment which tests the "six degrees of separation" theory. This theory claims that everyone is six or fewer steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person in the world. This means that a chain of a friend of a friend statements can be used to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps.
PIGS DON’T FLY
Film (short) Writer, Director and Producer The film tells a story about two “lost souls” in a bubble world, which start their communication through drawing pigs on a toilet paper. Anima is a free spirit soul, mysterious and vivacious who likes to explore her relationship with her bathroom, where she often writes in her diary. Gary is a shy and modest guy, inspired by Anima’s philosophy about life. The film should bring palpable, alive energy. “Life is like a bubble. Today you see the world upside down. Tomorrow it may burst. In one moment you believe that pigs do fly…”
