Year: 1974/2002
Genre: Television Art / Art video


TV announcements and inserts from TV shows from the 1980s show the creative work of Miha Vipotnik for public television (RTV Ljubljana). TV commercials made by Miha Vipotnik for various Slovenian producers and their brands between 1996 and 2002 show a skill in balancing the client's requirements and desires and Vipotnik's tendency to experiment in framing, editing and inserting unusual procedures also into this commercial genre. Often, the commercials have a cinematic effect, which may also override the primary purpose of the advertisement as such.
