Hello! My name is Hristo “Itso” Petkov and I am a film/video director, cinematographer and editor.
My background includes working as a graphic and product designer as well as VFX specialist in Worldwide FX. There I was a 3D Lighting Artist, using software packages such as Maya, ZBrush, Nuke and Mari. I worked on Hollywood features, such as Expendables 2 and Killing Season.
Over the last five years I co-owned a company, serving as its main director, editor and cinematogrpaher. Through my previous experience I have developed a full understanding of the overall pre-production, production and post-production process. I also have deep knowledge of color grading, as well as color and composition principles, as I have always found these important in my work. The software programs I use the most are Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop and Resolve. Moreover, I have worked with FCP and Avid on numerous occasions. I have made Internet and TV commercials, music videos and short films, and have received praise for my work at both film festivals and representatives of top brands, such as Microsoft, Samsung, Unicef, Nivea, Shell and Visa to name but a few.
Apart from creating commercials, I have also made several short and mid-length films. The first of them – “1, 2, 3… Until You Find Me” was screened on the Quarantine Film Festival, where it won an award for visual excellency. My credits in this film include directing, screenwriting, editing and color-grading.
The next film I was involved in, “Pigs Don’t Fly”, was screened on the Edinburgh Fringe – the biggest art festival in Europe. My credits in this film include co-directing, screenwriting, editing and color-grading.
My most recent project – “A Common Connection”, was screened on the Sofia International Film Festival, as well as in Edinburgh and was extremely well accepted by both Bulgarian and British audience. My credits in this film include co-directing, screenwriting, editing and color-grading, and cinematography.
I have also been a hobbyist photographer for more than seven years.
