Bohdan was born in Slovakia and grew up in Algeria, Germany, and Canada. Filmmaking is a natural extension of all that came before: photography, painting, drawing, writing, music, martial arts, Eastern and Western philosophy, psychology, a life well-lived and all other variables unknown to him. Filmmaking is Bohdan’s culmination of two decades of preparation to lead and collaborate effectively in this multidisciplinary medium.
His short narrative drama “CUDDLER” (2015) won him and the actors numerous awards and nominations from festivals around the world. He filmed and directed a short narrative drama “How We Dance” (2016) in Tokyo and Kyoto and his silent short narrative film “Thou” (2017) won the Gold Remi Award at the Houston International Film Festival (2018). He recently completed "Opportune" (2018), a short narrative drama that premiered at the Toronto Black Film Festival, is in development on two feature films and continues his work as a commercials director. His list of commercial clients include condominium builders, photography lenses manufacturers, the fashion and garment industry, healthcare and others. Bohdan now lives between Charleston/Toronto with his wife Shae-Lynn Bourne and son Kai.
