Since my childhood I was pursuing all possible ways of creative expressions. It started with drawing as a kid, then with learning music and then eventually by studying of a film, as I saw combination of music and visuals as a tools that could ultimately help me interpret all my inner thoughts.
Film school itself didn't teach me much, but lesson I learnt is that it's actually you and only you who is responsible for your growth. With enough passion, I kept learning on my own so eventually I got way ahead of my peers in meaning of skills in multiple disciplines.
As I used to see myself as cinematographer, I developed real passion for photography. Even though nowadays I'm wearing mostly Director's hat, my passion for a still pictures remained.
I moved to Asia and start working for a company producing video content. The most of my spare time I dedicate to working on my personal projects.
I also started my own little animation studio Video Bumper Factory (http://videobumperfactory) that meets with a lot of positive attention and I hope will very soon become my main source of income, which would enable me to be fully independent on a location and time.
Last but not least, I'm composing meditation and relax music. My first album Mate Valtr - Spirit Away was recently released on iTunes and you can listen to it also on Spotify (and If you could me 5-Star rating, that would help me as a starting artist a lot! But, no pressure :).
I'm not entirely sure where will the wind take me next time, but for now it's Asia that's my homeland.
