Very early on, David Sipoš (1989) substituted schooling for work and learning by doing, making a series of short films, first in self-production and later with the help of investors. In recent years, Sipoš has made a series of biographical documentaries portraying central gures from the history of the Slovenian Catholic church, such as Janez Frančišek Gnidovec, Dr Jožef Smej, Anton Vovk.
