IGNJAT MILETIC

Ignjat Miletic started cinematography at age 15 shooting skateboarding videos.  Using his uncle’s old camera, with a battery that would die after 3 minutes created a challenge that taught him to plan his shots and think ahead. He quickly progressed into shooting music videos for Dutch music artists that eventually got played on TV. From the beginning of his career Ignjat said “No matter what camera you use, no matter the budget, I taught myself the importance of good lighting. I came to realize that light is the magic touch”.  Now Ignjat looks to create the most interesting frames using the camera and lights of his choosing.

Shape Of Water

Set during the height of the Cold War in 1962, the Shape of Water applauds and at the same time subverts the classic film genres of science fiction and romance. At times frightening and at other times absolutely heartbreaking, the story updates The Creature from the Black Lagoon for modern audiences through a humorous, tense, and at many times absolutely adorable exploration of the heart, fear, and trust. In a love letter penned by director Guillermo Del Toro and cowriter Vanessa Taylor to the hallmark days of classic American science fiction, Shape of Water follows the silent Sally as she discovers a forbidden love with a creature unlike any she’s ever known.
