BELGRADE: Serbian actor Nikola Kojo has wrapped production on his directorial debut The Flock / Stado, a satirical comedy about life behind the camera, based on a true story. The project is currently in postproduction with the premiere due for 24 November 2016.
More often than not, a great drama precedes the film we see on screen. Filmmakers, those hopeless enthusiasts who ignore the reality of life, risk their very existence in their desire to create a great work of art. This story can be told in many different languages and in many different countries, even in many different periods of time. The story tells us that the road to the red carpet is not all roses, but filled with compromise, struggle and even with a pact with the devil, if necessary.
The main characters are played by Nikola Kojo, Zoran Cvijanović, Vesna Trivalić, Nataša Ninković, Nikola Đuričko, Goran Šušljik, Srđan Timarov and Branislav Trifunović.
Biljana Prvanović and Nikola Kojo are producing through Serbia’s K-12 Film & TV Production in coproduction with Film Center Serbia, Prva Srpska Televizija and Cineplexx.
With a budget of approximately 1 m EUR, the film benefited from a grant of 162,168 EUR / 20 m RSD from Film Center Serbia.
Shooting started on 23 June 2016. All 37 shooting days were spent on location in Belgrade. One of the more interesting facts about this shoot is that it involved an actual flock of sheep, their scenes being shot in Karađorđe’s park in the center of the capital, the neighborhood of Senjak, as well as the apartment of one of the main characters.
Continental Film is handling the domestic and regional distribution. The TV rights belong to Prva Srpska Televizija, with the TV premiere expected for March 2017. No sales agent is attached to the project yet.
