My name is Nikola Duper and I was born in Dubrovnik, Croatia, in 1961. At the age of ten I became already interested in photography. Ever since my childhood I have been fascinated by arts; I drew, painted, made my first simple sculptures. With the first video cameras I began to experiment with the possibilities of this new medium. I started playing and singing, and although I have never been a great talent, music was soon to become a cornerstone of my life. I also became involved with theatre, thanks to Mr Fedja Sehovic, who, despite of the big difference in age, soon became a close friend.
In addition to arts I also became interested in esotericism, and the first books I read were the very first works by Slavinski. I was fascinated by his practical and demystifying approach, which is aimed at the essential and at concrete teaching. From that time on, when I was not even twenty years old, this name was imprinted on my mind as a reference point.
In 1987 I moved to Italy and worked for several TV stations and developed skills as cameraman, editor, technical manager and director. In 1999 I created my own company and made various video productions. I have always been fascinated by the paranormal and became interested in crop circles in 2000. Combining my interests in film making and the crop circles I made several successful documentaries. I regularly travel to the UK to research the circles and to document formations in Italy. I am a prolific lecturer, I speak at conferences all over Italy and have appeared several times in Switzerland and the UK, and I take part in TV shows.
In 2005 I started attending Zivorad Mihajlovic Slavinski’s workshops and learnt some of his excellent techniques. In autumn 2008, after taking part at several workshops and after having worked as an assistant, I have become a certified processor and a trainer.
I have been able to verify the effectiveness of his methods myself and I am happy to put myself at the disposal of those who may need them.
