Belgrade + cleveland media group

content creators since 2004

History

Founded in 2003 by B. R. Tatalovic (multimedia artist and producer) in Cleveland, Ohio (USA), as an independent sole-member production company for motion picture and video content. The first commercial projects included live-event and bridal (ethnic) videography and music/concert video productions. On arthouse side, the company created short and feature films and experimental hybrid content. In recent years the producers are focused on very original content development: from spec and adapted screenwriting, to producing and online distribution of very original and niche motion media content.
