A documentary film about the Olympic gold medal winning Croatian water polo team is set to become the next project of Emmy Award winning creative director Pete Radovich.
New York born Radovich is the son of Croatian immigrants and is the creative director of CBS Sports in the US He has won 25 prestigious Emmy Awards, whilst working on every major sporting event on American television, including the Olympics, Super Bowl, Wimbledon and the NBA Finals.Radovich, who also was the main producer of the 60 minutes programme, has already shot the initial scenes for the documentary that will propel the story behind the Croatian water polo team to the world.
“I know Pete is a great producer and director of sporting events, and now at ZagrebDox film festival I watched his film “A Game of Honor” and I am convinced that he does not do classical sports films, but shows the family and intimate moments of his characters. Because of his Croatian background he is keen to have the story about the Croatian water polo team told to the world, and with his reputation he will be successful,” said Croatian water polo coach Ratko Rudic.
Radovich’s latest film “A Game of Honor”, about the traditional Army v Navy football game in the US, is currently screening at the international film festival ZagrebDox in Croatia this week.
