Hello. My name is Aljaž Tepina. Welcome to my portfolio. I am a video director based in Maribor, Slovenia. I mostly work on short films, promotional videos and commercials. I do a lot of pro bono work on projects that intrigue me. My interests lie in storytelling and film language, especially camera movement and intellectual editing. I am currently a student of media communications at University of Maribor.
DISCLAIMER. I was not in The Dark Knight Rises. That is another Aljaž Tepina, a Slovenian actor.

As said before, my next project is going to be a remake of Romance in Grey, from now on known as Project Romance, since I don’t have a new title yet. Pre-production is almost finished. The team is mostly assembled, the script is in a stable state and we have a shooting date – 6 and 7 April. I still have to design the shot list, but I am getting there. Two weeks ago we, as RAZ:UM production, had a general audition, which was very successful. This week we’ll have callbacks and finalize our decisions for the cast.

We still haven’t seen all the possible location candidates, but you can see one below:
