International star Bruce Dickinson takes part in filming documentary ”Scream For Me Sarajevo“
The most significant name of heavy metal music scene Bruce Dickinson was a guest of Sarajevo due to his role in the making of “Scream For Me Sarajevo” documentary produced by “Prime Time” production company.
The documentary covers the arrival of Bruce Dickinson and his band to Sarajevo under siege in 1994 when they held a legendary concert in Bosnian Culture Centre (BKC). The filming began in 2014 and continued throughout the year. It was culminated with shots of Bruce Dickinson on various locations around Sarajevo including BKC, Tunnel of Hope, Kovači cemetery, Historical Museum etc.
The idea for making such a documentary originated from Jasenko Pašić who did the entire research and contacted persons who were interviewed for this film. The producer of the film is Adnan Ćuhara, the head of “Prime Time”, the director is Tarik Hodžić, and co-producer is Tatjana Bonny from London.
According to Jasenko Pašić, the idea for making this film came to him when he read Chris Dale’s impressions, the bass player from Iron Maiden, about his stay in besieged Sarajevo. The text was published in three parts on metaltalk.net and not long after it was translated to our language and published on radiosarajevo.ba. Dale writes about his performance in Sarajevo and how this two-day visit made an impact on him, on his way of thinking and looking at daily events.
- Bruce Dickinson, Alex Elena, and Chris Dale told their story about Sarajevo. They were told they can’t come to Sarajevo because it’s not safe there. They met with Serious Road Trip organization members who transported them from Split to Sarajevo. This heroic act, which gave the people of Sarajevo a sign they were not forgotten gave me the incentive to produce this film, the producer Adnan Ćuhara says.
Besides Bruce Dickinson, on BKC stage in December of 1994 Chris Dale, the band’s bass player, the drummer Alex Elena and guitar player Alex Dickson were all present. The band’s technical support, Bob Edwards and Andey Veasey were also present. They were all accompanied by a journalist who followed the band on all of their concerts, Roland Hyams. All of that is covered in “Scream For Me Sarajevo”.
After the final shot of the film, British ambassador in B&H Edward Ferguson held a formal reception in Dickinson’s honour. Many guests from Sarajevo were invited to the Ambassador’s residence for the reception, including some of the most famous names from the Bosnian music and film industry. The Mayor of Sarajevo, Ivo Komšić presented Dickinson with the “Golden Badge” as a gift to remember Sarajevo by.
The premiere of the documentary “Scream For Me Sarajevo” is expected in summer 2016.

“Prime Time” has started filming the documentary “Scream For Me Sarajevo”
With regard to marking the 20. anniversary of hosting Bruce Dickinson, the leader of the legendary British heavy metal band Iron Maiden and his band members in war stricken Sarajevo, production company “Prime Time” is making a documentary film about this concert called “Scream For Me Sarajevo”.
Film is telling the story about how they came to the idea of hosting the world rock star and the members of his band in Sarajevo under siege, about how the arrival to Sarajevo went on, their stay in war stricken city, about the concert itself, and leaving the city. About all these events, from a time distance of 20 years, the concert’s protagonists, members of Dickinson’s band drummer Alex Elena and bass player Chris Dale, former members of UN’s peace mission, British officers Trevor Gibson and Martin Morris, as well as a couple of Sarajevo natives speak about the event from that December night, an event that, thanks to Dickinson and his band, has made them forget about the horrors and destruction that were part of their everyday life.
„We have finished the first week of shooting. We are extremely pleased with the finished work. All of the statements were recorded in Sarajevo, including the ones from Elena, Dale, Gibson, and Morris who came to our city especially for this occasion. We have managed to shoot some extraordinary material, and thanks to great organizing, all of the work was done without any problems. The entire seven days of shooting went on with the atmosphere of remembering the weekend when Dickinson and his crew played in Sarajevo. All of the emotions and reminiscing culminated on a gathering in Sarajevo club “Cinemas Sloga”, in memory of an unforgettable night in Sarajevo under siege” told the producer of the film “Scream For Me Sarajevo” Adnan Ćuhara.
The idea for making the documentary “Scream For Me Sarajevo” has originated from the author, Jasenko Pašić who has done the entire research and contacted the persons that gave the statements used in this film. The producer of the film is Adnan Ćuhara, director is Tarik Hodžić, and associate producer is Tatjana Bonny from London.
According to his own words, Jasenko Pašić came to the idea of doing this film by reading a piece of text, which was, while visiting Sarajevo, written by the band’s bass player Chris Dale. The text was published on metatalk.net in three sequels, and not long after translated into Bosnian and published on radiosarajevo.ba. Dale talked about being hosted in Sarajevo, as well as how this two-day visit left a mark on his way of thinking and looking at everyday things.
On December 1994, on the stage of Bosnian Center of Culture (BKC), aside from Bruce Dickinson there were also present bass player Chris Dale, drummer Alex Elena and guitar player Alex Dickinson. Bob Edwards and Andrey Veasey, band’s tech support were also present, and a journalist who followed Dickinson’s band on all Royal Hyams concerts.
Originally, according to organizer’s idea, Dickinson and his band should have played solely for members of UN peace corps in Sarajevo, but the leader of Iron Maiden declined saying that he could only perform for the citizens of Sarajevo. In the end it happened so. The journey itself wasn’t less exciting than staying in Sarajevo. The band traveled by plane to Split, and the rest of the journey they travelled in a truck owned by charity organization called “Serious Road Trip” all the way to Sarajevo.
The first day of their arrival they held the concert, their second day was off, and the band members met with their fans in war stricken Sarajevo. At first sight, everything seemed like any other trip. But since everything else was different back then in Sarajevo, this hosting was completely different from everything that the band has ever experienced.
The film “Scream For Me Sarajevo” says the entire story, whose premiere is expected in the summer of 2015._______________________________________________________ Published: December 2014.

Competition, which was held in Belgrade in the company’s headquarters, is traditionally called “Nordeus Hackathon”.
Guys from the production company “Prime Time” won with a game called “In Vino Veritas” (The truth is in vine). First place was won in a very harsh competition which was made of the best programming teams from every country in the region, 11 in total.The competition was held on 13. December, and according to the rules, all teams have 24 hours to create a video game with a specific theme. The theme is revealed to the contestants on the day of the competition. Hackathon’s goal is, as they point out from Nordeus, for contestants to show knowledge, innovations, ideas and work under pressure in a real business environment also. Besides, Hackathon’s mission is to show talented programmers and designers from neighboring countries, the ones that don’t fall back behind colleagues from around the world. All competing teams get their own space, working equipment, food, drinks, and other necessary items so they could focus on making the game. According to clearly stated rules, the contestants are not allowed to use animation, music or any other part that are subjected to copyright laws, that is they can’t take or simulate somebody else’s ideas.
This reward is another confirmation that production company “Prime Time” is hiring people of high quality, people who are committed to their jobs. Besides video production (feature and documentary films, commercials, music videos, and other kinds of video production) as a primary business, “Prime Time” has, for several years now, put computer graphics into first place on the long list of their activities, that is producing animated forms like 3D animated films, series, TV commercials and alike. In further development of its business, “Prime Time” has been paying more attention to creating video games. From the global perspective, gaming industry is one of the most important branches of computer industry.
“Prime Time’s intentions to position itself as one of the most important regional companies in this field of business is based on real foundations.

“It was unreal a couple of years ago that we could be a part of something like this. Making video games was as far and impossible as making animated films, until “Prime Time” gathered us all under one roof. Our participation and win on Nordeus Hackathon was one of many confirmations in a row that we have something to offer, and you will certainly have an opportunity to play one of our games”, said one of the members of the winning team, Andrej Jagar.
Since we’re speaking of challenges it needs to be mentioned that the organizer of the competition, Nordeus company is behind one of the most popular games online “Top eleven – Be a football manager“, which speaks about the competition and quality of “Nordeus Hackathon” contestants.

New BH Telecom commercial for promoting “transfer number”
The idea for the purpose of promoting “Transfer number to BH Telecom” was designed to offer a beautiful, from the beginning an abstract Bosnian story. Tradition and crafts have been nurtured in Bosnia and Herzegovina since old times, and telecom operator has been a part of that, so it needs to be associated with every beautiful story and moment in our lives. This story is about the most beautiful and wanted product in our culture, and that is freshly baked bread from small, neat, and traditional bakeries. The search for scents and products, and the symbolic bounding with the brand of BH Telecom needs to essentially relate to that need in order to evoke positive emotions. In the end, the video is long remembered due to its story, photography, shot choices, abstraction, non-directive type, accurately dosed action, and pleasant and non-aggressive message.
Production technique demanded a highly professional engagement of all teams and creative departments in “Prime Time” Production, because combining acting scenes and high-quality 3D animations represents the biggest production challenge. When we speak about commercials production and advertising in general, we can proudly say that this commercial was the first and rare case when the production demands were achieved as well as with knowledge and technical capacities of production companies in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We have approached the project with responsibility and in a professional manner. By using the latest technology of filming with “blue key” tracking, 3D modeling, coloring, compositing, and visual and audio effects combined with engagement of around 50 personnel, we have managed to design a virtual city and set our main actors in the place and time of the action.
