Ranko Pauković

In 1993 he set up his own sound studio, Editson, specialising in sound design, sound editing and film mixing for artistically ambitious projects.

A few years ago, he made his debut as a director with the feature-length documentary Bijela Kuća (White House), about the unique white stone found on the island of Brač, Croatia and the people who earn a living from quarrying it. White House was shown at several international film festivals and broadcast by Croatian national television (HRT) and Al-Jazeera Balkans. Ranko is also a visiting professor for the University of Zagreb, where he teaches sound design.
