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.
âMy wife always inspired me to follow my dreams because she said I was a great writer,â he said.
âShe said if I wanted to get into filmmaking and be a screenwriter, I shouldn’t waste any more time and I should just go.
âSome people have said that I was crazy to change careers, having had a comfortable salary.
âAt 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.
âStudying cinema at SAE and dissecting feature films and the meaning behind them is my escape from a really difficult world we live in,â he said.
âI am so satisfied with the knowledge and experience that all of my film speakers have shared.
âNow 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.
âI 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,â 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.
âWithout them I wouldn’t be where I am today,â he said.
