Sinisha Nisevic was born in Zagreb, Yugoslavia. At an early age, he was interested in and exposed to European Cinema works from Bertolucci, Antonioni, Tarkovsky, Godard, Fellini, Kusturica, Scorcese and many more. He came to Los Angeles at the age of 17 and began his film and photography studies to extend his interests and talents. In 2001 Sinisha wrote and directed his first feature film, titled Reflections, which starred Francesco Quinn and Marisol Padilla Sanchez in leading roles. Famed director Wim Wenders served as the honorary art director on the film.
After splitting time between Europe and America, Sinisha moved to Milan on the invitation from Donatella Versace to become the creative director for Versace, where he spent two years as creative director, shooting both photos and videos. Sinisha has also developed an inspiring list of celebrity clientele, shooting both still and video portraits for Danny Trejo, Paul Oakenfold, Ian Somerhalder, Olivia Wilde, Udo Kier, Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon, to name a few. Sinisha’s work has also been featured in publications such as Vogue Italia, Vogue Nippon, Vogue France and a cover of L’Uomo Vogue.
Since then, Sinisha has shot video and photo campaigns for advertising clients such as Versace, Levi’s, Oliver Peoples, Supima, Hasselblad, Sony, Champion Sportswear, and Canon. His video campaign for Supima Cotton won “Best Campaign of the Year” Award for fashion textile brands in 2006. In 2007, Sinisha shot a short film campaign for Oliver Peoples featuring legendary Hollywood producer, Robert Evans. Viral success of this campaign that Sinisha conceptualized, wrote, produced, and directed was the reason for the legendary producer to ask him to direct a feature film titled The Stranger at the Palazzo D’Oro, based on the novel by Paul Theroux. Sinisha has finished writing the screenplay adaptation and is currently in pre-production of the feature film. Sinisha now spends most of his time in Los Angeles working on his film and continuing to be a pioneer in holistic branding with a focus on a narrative cinematic approach and unique way of exploring all new media formats through film and photos.
