Founder / Head of Croatian Unit
Alen has been working as a Producer and D.P. for over 30 years. He was born in Croatia and moved to Los Angeles in 1992.
As 25 years old he started his wide-ranging experience with ENG reporting from war zones in the Balkans, continuing with around the globe travel, expeditions, and adventure programming productions world-wide.
He experienced often unique and complex demands that film and TV crews have when producing in foreign countries. With strong ties to production professionals in Croatia, he established Production Services Company FILMCroatia in 2004 as a link between international Producers and filming on location in Croatia.
Alen is involved in selected projects worldwide as a freelance D.P., an Advisor, or as a Producer.
Ivan was born in Croatia and has been working as a D.P. and a Producer for most of his life.
In 2002, in Zagreb, Ivan established a highly successful production company Blenda Ltd. that focused on high-end commercial and documentary productions. Many of his own projects and various for international and Croatian clients.
Ivan worked with Alen on many productions over the years and in 2015 they joined forces and are now partners in facilitating all FILMCroatia clients.
Besides Ivan's forte in extreme ENG filming, including underwater, aerial and slow motion, he is a great dedicated organizer and a project facilitating guru.
