Meet the team of Kresnik
All dedicated artists who worked on this project and other people to be thanked to can be found here. Bunch of hard working awesomeness in a human form!
For the role of Peter, an awfully scared kid who visits his cousins every year, Cene was a perfect match. Night shoots didn’t bother him, he was always ready for the next take.
Aljaž played Peter’s older cousin. He’s a vicious looking guy who wants to control everything, yet gets scared when the going gets tough, but he’d never admit that.
The adventurer Štefan was played by Domen. It’s the only boy in the story with a sense of humor which he constantly uses to cover up his cowardness and fear of wolves.
Assija Sultanovaelf girl
There was no question that she would fit perfectly in the role of a young elf girl when we developed the story. Assija brought magic and mystery to the bonfire night.
Slovenia has few such legendary actors as Dare Valič. His role of grandpa is short yet important for the story, because he’s the one who’s most involved in the lore of fire.
Hardworker and wonderer, constantly thinking about new projects. His passion led him to producing and directing Kresnik and this way shaking up Slovenia’s hype for fantasy.
Always smiling and dreaming, trying to elevate any project he gets his hands on to new emotional heights. Nothing is too big and nothing is too challenging for him.
His neverending curiosity for all the sounds shaping the kind of music we listen to gives him a unique edge when creating his own masterpieces and collaborations.
Not only was he responsible for the red line in the story, but also for how it was presented through the actors. He created a special bond with them and made them thrive in Kresnik.
Fantasy is written all over her. She has read and studied almost any fantasy book one can find in a library and with this passion she gave the story of Kresnik the magic it needed.
Marko Kočevardirector of photography
His experiences with light and camera led him around the world and gave him jobs on numerous feature movies. Painting the world of Kresnik was a challenge nonetheless.
Andrej Vrhovnikcostume designer
Fairytale creatures and worlds full of imagination were always his favourite. This time the story let him create special costumes for historic and magical worlds.
Anja Tomljecostume designer
Working as a costume designer and make-up artist was a perfect combination for her. She was very dedicated to the story and helped us get immersed in the 70’s again.
Mitja Mlakarvfx artist
Master of visual trickery. A few dozen of clips needed some final touch and he did a job no one can notice. Which proves he did a great job. Also he animated the credits sequence.
Miha Šubiccredits animation
Assistant director on the set and an animation artist in post-production. After the film ends, his animated characters get alive and take us to the major story points with great visuals.
This film has been partially financed through an international crowdfunding campaign.
