Raised in the former Yugoslavia, Goran first expanded his filmmaking horizons by studying Media Arts in Los Angeles. He now divides his time between Prague and Bratislava—at least, when he and his one-of-a-kind artistic sensibility aren’t trotting the globe to create graphically intriguing films in a diverse range of moods and genres.
Goran’s work thrives thanks to his inventive mind, artistic eye, and theater background. Together, these traits allow him to craft fully formed filmic worlds tailor-made to the particular soul and message of each concept. His talents have enabled him to direct celebrated spots for agencies across Europe, Japan, and the Middle East.
Goran’s work has been featured in SHOTS, Campaign, Screen, and ZOO, among others. His commercials have been awarded both locally and internationally, including a Midsummer Award for his Head & Shoulders spot, “Handsome,” and wins for his Budiš mineral water spot, “Biker,” at festivals in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Palermo, as well as Eurobest and the in-agency competition “7+ Leo Burnett.” His TV drama, “Professional,” was also honored with a Special Jury Award at Cannes’s FIPA, proving that Goran’s directorial voice thrills audiences in every format and every region.
