Your project entered our festival. What is your project about?
My project - Last Wedding - represents a multi-awarded unproduced screenplay based on the novel of the same name. It tells about a rich girl, Wendy Brown, who is unlucky in love and marriage. Namely, she marries four times, and all her husbands have passed away due to unfortunate circumstances, all of which is additionally spiced with the humor that inhabits these scenarios. This actually tells us that this is a film project of the highest level of dark humor.

What are your ambitions with your project?
As it is an unproduced script, my ambitions are to present it to film producers and managers and interest a production company in shooting it in the coming period. When I created that novel in 2009, I had in mind that one day I would present it as a screenplay. Now I am glad that I have the opportunity to present it as an unproduced project.

Tell us about your script? What pleasantly surprised you?
I can say that I am pleased that "Last Wedding" was successfully listed at film festivals and won numerous awards and film awards, which delighted me because I was able to step into the film world. In a way, I can say that the scripts of "Last Wedding" and "Samba To Death" were like a ticket to the world of cinema.

Which audience group is your film intended for?
For adults who like comedy scenes and dark humor. It is primarily intended for young people and the middle-aged generation.

Why should film productions buy your film?
Because I think that it is a successful project that could make the film audience laugh, and with a successful work, it would have a great reputation on the world film stage. And that is something that the film industry strives for. So, I think it would be very successful - a hit. In some ways, Wendy Brown could be an interesting movie heroine.

How would you specify your work? What characterizes your film?
The scenario of "Last Wedding" is characterized by an abundance of comedic scenes and an exceptionally good portrayal of the American jet set. I could describe my work as dedicated, the constancy of literary creativity, which was first reflected in novels, lyrical poetry, and then in scripts for the film industry.

Why did you decide to become a filmmaker?
That was my childhood dream. First, to become a writer, and then to work as a screenwriter. Primarily, I believe that it takes a lot of practice to be a good screenwriter and that it can be felt through your dedicated work how skilled you are in creating a novel or a movie hit.

Who is your role model?
I loved and appreciated the personality of Princess Grace Kelly very much. During my childhood, I collected her pictures from newspapers and magazines that were current on newsstands at the time. She seemed to me to be a model of refined elegance that she had both as an actress and later when she took on an aristocratic role on the French Riviera. At the age of 15, I wrote the handwritten work "Dersal's Heirs", which takes place in Monte Carlo. I think that the very beginning is right there somewhere, in that phase of my life - childhood/teenage.

What are your favorite movies? Why?
I like to watch investigative shows that are broadcast on the American channel Investigation Discovery. The theme of true detective and police investigations, which is accompanied by customized video clips played by actors, seems to be really interesting television content. From movies, I like to watch good thrillers.

Where do you look for inspiration for your films?
I find inspiration through my own imagination. I have many scenarios for different genres that are intended for a wider audience from 0 to 99 years old. I can find inspiration in ordinary objects, music, and sometimes an idea for some literary creation simply comes to me.

What topics are you most interested in?
I am most interested in the subject of criminalistics, police investigations, the mafia and the military. Although it seems to me that I am also very successful in the world of animated creativity or screenwriting. I have been engaged in literary work for a long time, so I can present myself through various types of literary forms - poetry, drama and prose.

What do you consider your greatest success in your career?
I consider it a success that I managed to go from being an anonymous person who had dreams of becoming a famous writer in my childhood, to now entering the world of cinema. I consider that step very significant for my life, especially in terms of creative and artistic work.

What do you consider the most important thing about recording?
I could say that I think that it is important that all the pieces of film realization fit together perfectly and that a film hit is created that would be interesting and successful on the world film stage. It is essential to pay attention to every aspect of creative filmmaking.

Which filming technique do you consider the best?
I am currently still in the phase where I am presenting unproduced scenarios. But there are more film techniques that are interesting.

How would you rate/what is your opinion about current filmmaking?
I consider it important that the film can be rated well by the audience. Primarily, it is the audience that will ultimately evaluate the significance of a film's success over time. Film criticism also contributes to the fact that the evaluation of a film can be presented through newspapers and news that accompany film productions and content. The difference in academic criticism, or the criticism that appears in the media, has significant differences in the evaluation of filmmaking, but I believe that all of this is somehow connected in terms of the final outcome in the evaluation of a film project.

What can disappoint you in a movie?
I was most disappointed when a film "rises to the heavens" so to speak, and in the end if I had the opportunity to watch it - such a film would not leave any significant mark or impression on me. Admittedly, the tastes in evaluation are completely different. Admittedly, this is again viewed from the aspect of film criticism, it is something individual. Every viewer today is also a small film critic, but tastes are still different.

Who supports you in your film career?
My children, daughter Dita and son Jessie, support me the most at the moment. I think that if it weren't for them, I wouldn't be where I am right now. They were the ones who primarily, every day, through conversations, made me move in the direction of the film industry. Now they are very interested in seeing a screenplay of one of my screenplays, which would probably be a wonderful step for us to a bigger city, like New York, where we could spend some time. I think that it is the two of them who are most responsible for it - their dream is to see a successful mom in the world of the film industry.
