Just another film director.


The following random things might be worth of mentioning – don’t ask me why.
People just write these sort of things on their websites.

Creativity magazine picked me to it’s “Directors To Watch” article (in 2006), which featured 20
most interesting up-coming directors around the world. I think I am still quite proud of that.
