Leo Černic

Leo Černic is an author of short animated films, madly in love with small independent film production and humble, sincere artists. He graduated in film and television directing at the Academy of Theater, Radio, Film and Television in Ljubljana and then continued his studies in animation at the Experimental Center of Cinematography – Piedmont branch in Turin. In his films he always tries to capture the stories about losers and their dreams – perhaps he recognises himself as one of them.
