Biography

Background: Between 1991 and 1995 Kristian Taska studied business management, script writing and film history at Santa Monica College, Los Angeles, and business management at Concordia International University in Tallinn. In 1993 he helped his father in founding the first Estonian private TV station, Kanal 2, one of the three national-coverage channels in Estonia, and worked as their Advertising and Business Manager until 1995 and from 1997 to 2000 as their General Manager. Under his management the station ranked among the top 50 companies in Estonia in 1998. In 2000 he established his own production company, Taska Film (OÜ Taska Productions). In 2001-2002 he co-wrote and produced Estonia's highest budgeted feature film, NAMES IN MARBLE, a romantic drama taking place during the years of the Estonian War of Independence. The film was theatrically released in Estonia and Finland in 2002 and has exceeded all other foreign and local productions released in Estonia to date in both admission numbers and box office takings. In 2003, Taska has produced his second feature film WE WILL NOT SLEEP TONIGHT, a psychological thriller about four lonely and disconnected people searching for love and light until a strange murder changes their lives. Taska Film has obtained the rights to several famous Estonian novels with a view to future productions.
