He has produced over 200 TV features since 1987, covering the globe from Russia, the un-explored jungles of Belize, up to the Arctic. He has experienced the diversity and adversity of the business, making him a strong director and field producer. He knows what’s needed to tell a compelling story, in long or short form. He is also a seasoned offline editor, having tested and helped with development of an early computer system and then used it as the first non-linear editor for a TV series in 1990. Hajicek has been dubbed “The Camera Explorer” by some, inventing and implementing new camera systems in untested places. In 2006 his greatest accomplishment may have been his development of the Trojan Squid Cam, used to film the worlds first free swimming Giant Squid in 2006 that was over 54 feet long.
