About Vital

I am a director, producer, screenwriter, editor, dancer and anything else required to finish the project I am working on. Sometimes even the actor, although rarely. I had wanted to be a film maker ever since I was a child and shot movies with my friends on my fathers Hi8 Sony and then forgot about film for years until I auditioned for a dancer on a commercial. The moment I stepped onto the sound stage and saw all the lights, cameras, lenses, etc. I knew I wanted to make movies and with a lot of encouragement from my partner we started learning about film making. Soon we made our first cinematic dance video and other people came to us to shoot a dance video for them. After that both of us realized that we really enjoyed film-making and started devoted even more time to it.
Soon we got the idea to create to shoot some short films and bought a new cinema camera. During everything I thought myself how to do a really good preparation for pre-production and how to direct well while on set and of course how to bring a larger project together in post-production. I also realized that I enjoyed screenwriting and decided to learn even more by writing my first feature film screenplay.
After quite a fer smaller sized projects done from start to finish like music video and dance video I have decided to move towards narrative film.

Unique traits: After years of being a dance instructor working with people and organizing a choreography of moment and action to create the final result even if it is a movie. I speak a few different languages Slovene and English of course, Italian, Croatian and now Spanish.
