Vladimir Lisinac Productions (1).png

Vladimir Lisinac’s passion for filmmaking stems from an early age. From the very first time his father took him to the theater to watch “The Way of the Dragon,” his eyes mesmerized by the opening sequence, Vladimir has wanted to try his hand in the seventh art. He accredits American cinema for teaching him English language and movies as a great teacher in life.
 
He is an award-winning Serbian-American filmmaker who writes, funds, produces, and distributes independent feature films and TV shows. His aim is to inspire others to make positive contributions to society.

Along the Roadside

2013

ATR.jpg

This multi-award winning American indie is about two young people from opposing parts of the world who are on even more starkly different paths mentally and emotionally. Varnie learns his girlfriend is pregnant while Nena, naive and jovial, arrives in America starstruck to see her favorite band perform. The lives of strangers Nena and Varnie randomly intersect and they ironically wind up on the same journey–one that becomes filled with humorous culture clashes and a sincere path to self discovery all on a road trip to a California music festival. 

“Along the Roadside” features international stars: Faust nominee and German rising star Angelina Haentsch, Lazar Ristovski, lead from Palme d’Or winning “Underground.” Paired up with their American counterparts: Hollywood star and all around badass Michael Madsen (who won Best Supporting Actor Award at IFS Film Festival in Beverly Hills for his role in this film), Craig Collins, Vickilyn Reynolds, Sheldon Bailey, and Alejandro Patino also play roles alongside the film’s male lead, Iman Crosson, also known as “Alphacat” online, who similarly has the disposition of a young Denzel Washington.
