I am an independent semi-professional creative. Multimedia has been a great interest of mine for many years, and now and again I engage in a paid project. Otherwise, I am a full-time PhD researcher at the moment and soon to be a lecturer. For this degree I am developing a strategy of how to better communicate environmental science to the tourism industry. As part of this project we will be producing a short documentary, which is going to be exciting! …and that’s just for starters 🙂
My previous credentials include Bachelor of Social Science majoring in journalism, and Master in environmental management.
During my undergraduate degree, I have learned the principles of filming, and developed skills including preparing communication materials for a variety of outlets, including radio, television and press, conducting of interviews, and ethics’ protocols related to communicating with various audiences.
Additional to that, I undertook a number of media production and scriptwriting practical trainings and workshops organised by MediaDesk with internationally renowned directors and writers, including Hugh Purcell, Christian Ruth, Adela Pavia, and Metod Pevec.
Further, I have participated in a 3-months multi-national film production course in Ryslinge, Denmark, which included work in mastering all stages of short-film production.
Over the years I have also gained a couple of awards:
• Scriptwriter – Winner of the competition in writing a script for an iconic Slovenian cartoon Bojan the bear for the Slovenian National Radio and Television broadcasting organisation (RTV Slovenia);
• Director – Shortlisting of my short movie at the Northern Lights film festival (Australia).
• Photographer winner in the category: Our Natural Environment (Sunshine Coast Environment Council, Category)
My previous employment experiences include working for two production houses in the role of Story Editor on the Big Brother project. The first one, Paprika Production, is the leading production house in the Central and Eastern Europe region as the only one present in 10 countries. Its production focus is on TV shows in all genres including drama, entertainment and reality as well as digital and branded content for a variety of clients. The second one, Emotion Production, is the leading independent production company in the Balkan region, which frequently collaborates with the world largest production houses, including Warner Bros. Entertainment, 20th Century Fox, BBC, Fremantle Media and Sony Pictures. Additional to that I have also worked as a TV Graphic Designer to support myself through the journalism course.
As I am (only) doing a PhD now and have some spare time on my hands, I would be more than happy to get involved in creative projects, especially those related to environmental topics(but definitely not limited to that). I am good in conducting research, planning, scouting, scriptwriting, interviewing and to a degree editing. If you have an interesting project, I would love to work with you. Send me a text, and let’s have a chat.
