Films about Goran’s future

Inspired by his late wife, Point Cook’s Goran Margeta changed careers in sales to pursue his dream of becoming a screenwriter.

Mr Margeta, 47, said he held sales positions in banking and energy for two decades.

But after his 24-year-old wife passed away five years ago, he decided it was time to try something different.

“My wife always inspired me to follow my dreams because she said I was a great writer,” he said.

“She said if I wanted to get into filmmaking and be a screenwriter, I shouldn’t waste any more time and I should just go.

“Some people have said that I was crazy to change careers, having had a comfortable salary.

“At this point in my life, it’s not enough, I want to be fulfilled every day in everything I do.

Mr. Margeta is currently studying a Bachelor of Film at SAE Creative Institute in Melbourne.

“Studying cinema at SAE and dissecting feature films and the meaning behind them is my escape from a really difficult world we live in,” he said.

“I am so satisfied with the knowledge and experience that all of my film speakers have shared.

“Now I have a lot of confidence in everything they taught and have built a strong relationship with each of them. “

Mr. Margeta said that before starting SAE he considered himself to be a screenwriter.

“I learned on my trip not to label myself too much, because I was interested in directing and producing – I want to absorb the film process as much as possible,” he said.

Outside of his studies, Mr. Margeta runs a food channel on YouTube called Dalmalika Delights, a management group for budding artists and two Carlton Football Club podcasts.

He said his four children were also “very supportive” of his ambition to work in films.

“Without them I wouldn’t be where I am today,” he said.
