The Fishermen

I definitely enjoyed taking “a detour from the tour”, to discover and spend a day with these fellas. Probably the best clams I’ve ever tasted (they feature onscreen). A boat ride, easygoing talks, midday wine-drinking and the mixed shadow of the fishermen hut. The guys were big on smoking and communism, shy on big words. Toshko’s dream as a child – to become an airplane pilot. Guess that’s pretty much the only dream you can have if you (and five generations before you) have spend your entire life on the sea.

I am a Bulgarian-born filmmaker working between Sofia and London. Over the last six years, I have been directing TV commercials for agencies like DDB, Leo Burnett, Lowe Swing, Publicis, Huts JWT, Demner Merlicek & Bergmann. I have worked for a wide range of clients – from mobile telecoms through charities to a viral campaign for a presidential candidate at the 2011 elections in Bulgaria.

I have a film making diploma from the London Film Academy, following a BA degree in Journalism by the American University in Bulgaria. I have worked in media and theatre, before discovering my passion for film making and turning it into a full-time devotion.
