Ivan Kraljevic (Director)
Ivan's interest in story telling started with his great grandmother sharing her real life stories with him before bed. He was able to envision her words and conversely sparked a lifelong interest into the human experience; to understand why people do what they do and what brings them to that point.
Growing up in Yugoslavia, his access to foreign film was through television that was dubbed in Italian, so in order to understand his only option was to learn to Italian, which he did. So, when the film “The Dark Side of the Sun” came to shoot in his hometown; Ivan was immediately drawn to the cameras, the people and the commotion. By chance, the Assistant Director gave Ivan a walkie-talkie and a job to do, to keep an eye out for the sun so they could get their perfect movie moment.
Since then, he has worked in the Directing department for television show such as; Dexter, Big Love and Crossing Jordan, and films such as Secretary, The Perfect Game, and A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010).
