At the 95th Oscar Awards ceremony of the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the film ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’ won as many as four Oscars, for the best international film, scenography, film music and film photography.

Ana and Melkior worked with scenographer Christian Goldbeck on the development of military trenches and a camp that were later built in the Czech Republic. After graduating from the Faculty of Architecture in Zagreb, they both started working on film. The first project was Game of Thrones, and thanks to the famous Croatian scenographer Nenad Pečur, they worked on the Hollywood blockbuster Uncharted, which was shot in the Babelsberg studio in Berlin. After a successfully completed job, the next project was ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’.

Ana and Melkior are currently in Ouarzazate, Morocco, where they are working with the famous designer Arthur Max on Ridley Scott’s new film.
