Petar Spiljevic began his directing career in 2006. Serbian by birth and fluent in French and English, he moved to South Africa in 1991 and immediately developed a love for the African continent. After being a finalist in the TV category at the New York Festival Awards for his Consol advert, he continued to shoot ads for a broad spectrum of clientele; including Nedbank, Tonic and Samsung. His work spans across Africa, having shot in Mozambique and, most recently, Kenya.
He also recently collaborated with Stink Moscow on a Philips campaign, which was shot in Moscow. Stink expressed their gratitude of working with Petar, acknowledging his “attention to detail and relentless determination to release a quality product on time”.
He has a strong passion for music and food and has completed creative pieces for Stork, Tasty TV and Sunshine D. He has a discernible ability to bring classic stories to life with warmth and humour, and has a stylistic approach to films, incorporating a unique feel for each brand.
The fact that he is a father of two toddlers is integral in his life and career; he assures that nothing would be possible without the inspiration of his sons. His love for children is evident in his Neurofen ad, showcasing his keen eye for detail and benevolent nature.
