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.
