After​ ​graduating​ ​from​ ​the​ ​Faculty​ ​of​ ​Dramatic​ ​Arts​ ​I​ ​moved​ ​to​ ​New​ ​York​ ​to​ ​pursue​ ​a​ ​career​ ​as​ ​a film​ ​editor.​ ​I​ ​was​ ​working​ ​on​ ​numerous​ ​feature​ ​narrative​ ​films​ ​and​ ​documentaries. I​ ​also​ ​worked​ ​for​ ​nine​ ​years​ ​with​ ​Marina​ ​Abramovic​ ​as​ ​an​ ​editor,​ ​director​ ​and​ ​producer.

Did​ ​political​ ​situation​ ​in​ ​Serbia​ ​and​ ​the​ ​wars​ ​in​ ​the​ ​former​ ​Yugoslavia​ ​pushed​ ​you​ ​into thinking​ ​more​ ​about​ ​the​ ​issues​ ​of​ ​conflict,​ ​identity,​ ​human​ ​struggle?

Yes​ ​definitely,​ ​because​ ​of​ ​that​ ​experience​ ​I​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​create​ ​a​ ​VR​ ​project​ ​called​ ​Giant​ ​where​ ​I wanted​ ​to​ ​share​ ​my​ ​experience​ ​through​ ​a​ ​narrative​ ​fictional​ ​story.​ ​What​ ​mattered​ ​was​ ​to transfer​ ​the​ ​emotion​ ​and​ ​realism​ ​of​ ​what​ ​people​ ​are​ ​going​ ​through​ ​in​ ​conflict​ ​zones.​ ​I​ ​wanted​ ​to share​ ​that​ ​primarily​ ​with​ ​a​ ​Western​ ​audience​ ​who​ ​have​ ​never​ ​been​ ​in​ ​such​ ​situations,​ ​so​ ​that they​ ​can​ ​broaden​ ​their​ ​understanding​ ​through​ ​being​ ​immersed​ ​in​ ​the​ ​story.​ ​The​ ​family​ ​in​ ​Giant is​ ​Western,​ ​too,​ ​so​ ​the​ ​audience​ ​can​ ​relate​ ​more.

Venus of Jale (short animated movie)

 

Animated short “Venus of Jale” was inspired by sculptures by Ljubodrag Janković Jale, recognized Serbian fine artists, former professor of the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade. Since the 50’s he is engaged in work on different art forms, including drawing, painting, engraving and sculpting. His sculptures display figures of women. These figures have miraculous appeal, dignity and beauty, in a form which isn’t realistic, but simple and reduced into a composition of harmonic shapes in space. The style and simplicity of forms creates a monumental impression, which is unexpected for such small sculptures. These sculptures have richness of various influences, which seem to wrap all human experience in sculptural representation of the female body, from Paleolithic art, Archaic art, Renaissance, Picasso, More, Slavic native art, all collected into authentic sculptural handwriting. For the purpose of the project “Venus of Jale”, the author’s sculptures are transferred into the media of 3D animation, with aim to copperhand this modeling method of animation and to explore the relation between sculpture and 3D graphics, their similarities, differences and influences.
