Happy birthday Zagreb 

Commercial, 2019

A love letter to my hometown

When Plan 9 Production presented me with an opportunity to write a love letter to my hometown, I dived in heart first. Since this was a birthday present to the people of Zagreb, we needed to make everything feel genuine - from locations, to supporting cast, costumes including even - mise en scenes. 

Puzzling all the shots together in a seamless transition of shots that fit perfectly with one another required super precise timing on set.
