Give Up Everything
14 February 2012
Stipe Erceg has experimented a lot in life and often found himself down the wrong path. Now 36, he has been acting ten years. Croatian-born and raised in Germany, he studied at the European Theatre Institute Berlin and eventually landed several leading cinematic roles in films between 2000 and 2011. Most notably were his parts in the German films The Baader Meinhof Complex and The Educators. “Stipe is a bit crazy, and that’s exactly what makes him special and interesting,” explains Valerij Bilchenko. Valerij is Stipe’s former acting instructor, and Stipe was one of his first students in his first year of teaching. Back then, the Ukrainian-born director introduced a whole new way of thinking to Stipe. “Focus on the experience; be willing to give up everything, all your knowledge, everything that you have, for one moment of true life, one moment of true pure inspiration," Stipe says.
