This short documentary addresses some of the criticism Record Store Day has received in recent years.
With a friend, I attended several Record Store Day 2015 events in Glasgow. We spoke to visitors and organizers of the various events around town, and recorded these conversations.
Among others, we interviewed Alex Main, owner of a well known Glaswegian independent record shop/non-profit organisation New Hellfire Club. Another interviee is Hector Barbour (a.k.a. techno producer Denis Sulta), staff member of Rubadub, a store that has famously declared its own Rubadub Shop Day in place of Record Store Day.

During a period of four months, I followed Croatian singer-songwriter Nina Romić and her band as they rehearsed and recorded Nina’s third studio album ‘Stablo.'
When the album was finished, I recorded an interview with Nina reflecting on the whole process of creating the album. This interview functions as the voiceover that carries the documentary.
The video premiered in time with the album's concert release. 'Stablo' has been nominated for IMPALA’s European Independent Album of the Year Award.

Leading up to the 2015 general election in Croatia, I made a series of videos explaining basic political terms (series title in English: A guide for the average voter).
The series is a mixture of vlog-style videos and motion graphics. The videos are lighthearted and (hopefully) humorous, as my aim was to make the various political terms often used by the mainstream media more accessible to wider audiences.
The project got picked up by several mainstream and student media outlets in Croatia.

For this project I collaborated with Croatia Records, Croatia’s largest record label in telling the story behind their release The Indie Compilation.
This involved arranging and filming interviews with all 12 artists (bands and solo acts) featured on the compilation, and editing over 25 hours of footage into a 7 minute documentary feature. The video was published by a Croatian pop culture magazine Ravno do dna.
