Playgrounds The Art Department Berlin 2019 Main Titles

Director and CG artist Sava Zivkovic in Belgrade, Serbia: “Influenced by our surroundings and experiences while growing up, this film is a recollection of a distant memory, one that many of us would try our hardest to forget.

“Originally conceived as a standalone short film titled ‘NAT’ in 2018, the production kept getting delayed due to ever more busy work schedule, all the way up to the point where I’ve almost completely abandoned the project.

“But as the memory of the events depicted in the short never truly fades, neither does the desire to actually produce it.

“Enter Playgrounds The Art Department. Once I’ve heard my Dutch friends are making a move towards the Berlin scene I knew we had a perfect opportunity to make this project a reality.”
