My name is Milan Maric, Through my work as a TV/Video Producer, I learned how to create and implement high quality Audio Visual strategies by applying best techniques, practice and approaches, whereas staying within limited or often minimal budgets. My technical knowledge gives me opportunity to better understand needs of my crew and to delegate responsibilities appropriately in order to streamline production as much as possible. As a Cinematographer, I have knowledge and skills necessary to work with various video, audio, light and grip equipment in any type of environment; from field production to studio sets. I am equally comfortable filming or taking still shots with different types of cameras, anything from small and full frame DSLR's to 4K cameras like RED, SONY F55 and other big Canon and Panasonic professional systems. Cinematographer's skills of light control, understanding of camera angles and framing, choice of adequate camera/lens combination are necessary elements for good story telling in video production as well in still photography. For in-house production, my skills could be used to research, write, develop, organize and execute shooting and editing of visual content for various digital platforms and formats such as: TV segments, interviews, trailers, promo/fundraising videos, instructional videos, diversity training videos etc. In the past my responsibilities covered the entire workflow from footage ingesting, transcoding various unprofessional formats to editing friendly files, multi camera syncing, video editing, music and foley effects, animation, data visualization, color correction, export and compression for web. Lastly I can also work as instructor for editing software and production workflow. As one of Chief Editors for Emotion Production, the biggest production house in Serbia, I took the role of Avid Media Composer instructor for 10+ senior in house editors and numerous newly recruited junior staff. Besides Avid I'm proficient in Adobe Premiere Pro, Photoshop, Lightroom, Encore, Canopus Edius, Apple Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, Color, Compressor, Microsoft Office package as well as plethora of other trancoding and compressing softwares.

The base plate has a metal knob that on other similar base plates I have found to be with a spring. Since it was fixed and not with a spring, I was unable to mount my DSLR mirrorless. Just something to note. Maybe I didn't know. But otherwise all good. Fortunately I had a similar base plate.

Everything was as expected and my shoot was successful because of it! Milan was more than helpful and always responded quickly to my questions. This was my first rental with Kitsplit and he made it very painless! Thank you!

Helpful. Miscommunication resolved amicably.

Markuza was more than helpful with renting the mic, and giving advice.

very cordial

This was my first film shoot using an external audio recorder and I can't explain how happy I found Milan for this rental. The Zoom came in it's own hard-shell case + a carrying pouch with A/C power adapter and handle. On top of that, the Zoom came with fresh batteries and a formatted SD card that I could use, saving me a $40 purchase. This rental didn't come with a transfer cable but really that's a tiny price to pay given how cheap this rental is, compared to others on KitSplit. Finally, due to inclement weather, we had to extend our shoot by two days which was terrifying because we thought we'd have to return this equipment and rent again for one night, Milan let us hold onto the Zoom for an extra two days so that we could finish with the same equipment we started with. Would recommends!

Great, all-inclusive light kit and cube for shooting still lifes. The cube is almost 2 ft tall and easily portable. Milan and his wife were flexible and communicative with pickup and drop off.

Milan and his steadicam system were fantastic. After reserving the item on KitSplit, I easily coordinated pickup and dropoff arrangements through this site, and the entire process went smoothly. The steadicam itself was just as described, and performed very well, giving our project the desired look.

Excellent as always. See former reviews:)

Another stellar review for Milan. His equipment is great, it's kept in excellent condition and he's the best. Enough said!

Milan's equipment was in top notch condition and he and his wife are incredibly nice people! I WILL be renting from them again!
