SP: Jane, fala for taking the time, I know your very busy.
JA: Nema problem K, thanks for waiting.
SP: When did you get into directing?
JA: I decided to go into directing as early as high school. And at that time I was participating in an alternative Drama Art Studio, when I made my directorial debut as an author of the multimedia performance “Confusion is next”, based on the cult Sonic Youth’s LP. After two years studying philosophy, I finally enrolled at the Faculty of Dramatic Arts in Skopje in 1998 and that was the official start of my professional carrier as a film, TV and art director.
SP: Was it always music videos, or other kinds of video/film projects you have been directing?
JA: Except musical videos I have had experience in directing musical documentaries, video-arts and several short films.
SP: How did you come to work with Sasko Kostov on "I'm losing my mind"?
JA: At the beginning of the entire initiative I was inspired by the fascinating photos of my creative partner Natasa Geleva, aka NeuErotik and when we listened to Sasko Kostov’s “I’m losing my mind”, we decided that making a promo clip – video-art would be an excellent start for our collaboration. The video is made at the cult club Ludnica (Madhouse) which unfortunately does not exist anymore.
