It is not easy to summarize all the beauties of the city of Zagreb in 7 minutes’ time but the photographer and cameraman Marko Vrdoljak came close to the idea in his short film “The pulse of the city of Zagreb”. He started filming the events and people in the streets of Zagreb in 2010. He has been doing it for two years and it all resulted in the beautiful video postcard which celebrates our capital city.
- We wanted to capture all four seasons of the year and all the important events and places in the city - Vrdoljak says. This is not the first time he takes photos of Croatia’s sights to advertise the beauties of Croatia for potential tourists.
The exhibition of his photos called “Incredible Croatia” has represented our country in Sweden, Latvia, Poland, Italy, Denmark and other European countries. The event was organized in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Now it has its addition called “Incredible Croatia 2”.
In the film “Pulse of the city” there are some favorite activities of Zagreb citizens like drinking coffee on Cvjetni Square, walking in Maksimir or along the banks of the Sava River. Everything is wrapped up with the romantic sunset but also there are events like a recent visit of Angelina Jolie. The whole film is accompanied by the music that was especially created for this project. The author of the music is Zvonko Tesic. There are thousands of photos and video recordings connected by a special time-lapse technique. The postproduction and special effects were made by Drazen Zeljkovic.
- We wanted to show Zagreb as the place of cheerful people full of positive energy and optimism. We have been tired of watching bad news all the time and we wanted to show people in nice and relaxing moments - Vrdoljak explains the inspiration for the video. It is almost certain that he will motivate the world travelers to make a stop in Zagreb as well.
