"LOUNGE CAFE - DVE GODINE POSLE / LOUNGE CAFE - TWO YEARS AFTER" is a television documentary about a fire that took eight young lives in a cafe in Novi Sad. The documentary was made to remind people of what happened, raise questions about the safety of public places and to examine what changed in two years in the regulatory systems of the city. I got involved very early on as an animator on the project but ended up doing everything visual on the project. The promo, the opening, the lower thirds, animated documents and cutscenes and other animation. After that they asked me to help them shoot the reconstruction scenes with the fire department and the scenes from the cafe. I turned out to be a great team and I enjoyed helping them. I ended up editing and doing the whole audio and video post for them. It was very hard work but the end result was a 40 minute documentary that was very strong emotionally and had roused the public. The project is now being prepared for festivals.
