Blade Production & Production House 666 & Strup Productions 2014 Idila Idyll 01.jpg

The Blade Production House was established in 2012, with its field of expertise spanning from the production of commercial ads and music videos to short and, as of recently, also feature films. While its commercial projects are fitted to the needs of its clients, its authorial output has a somewhat darker tone.


Under the wing of Blade Production also operates the 666 Productions, which has been the production vehicle for Tomaž Gorkič since 1999 and from which Blade, in a way, actually evolved. At first, its primary focus was concert and festival organisation and promotion (with bands such as Deicide, Marduk, Agent Steel, Immortal, Extreme Noise Terror, etc.), but after a few years, 666 Productions immersed itself exclusively into video, with its first product being a music video for Deca Debilane back in 2004. In the last decade or so, Tomaž has been the sole Slovene film author who works extensively in the genres of horror and gore. During this time, he has often cooperated with Strup Productions, now also a regular collaborator with Blade Productions.

Up until 2014, Tomaž's primary outputs were short films and music videos, but this has changed with the production of the feature-length film Idila [Idyll]. Featuring a cast of popular and well-known Slovene actors, it falls under the horror genre, a genre with little precedence in the history of Slovene filmography.

Festival appearances and awards

The Idyll was chosen by the Slovenian Film Centre for the screening at the Cannes Film Festival 2015. In the same year it was declared the Best Film of Slovenian Film Festival. Some earlier short films by Tomaž Gorkič have also been featured at a number of festivals (Kino Otok, Unica Luxembourg Film festival, Fisch Film Festival, South Africa Horror festival, Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival...). His short film Veriga mesa [Chain of Meat] has been screened and awarded both at the Festival of Independent Film in Ljubljana and at the Trash Film Festival in Varaždin (where he received, fittingly, the Golden Chainsaw Award). He has also been awarded at Grossmann Fantastic Film and Wine Festival, where his films are regularly screened.
