The Founder

Miko Lazic has worked as a photographer and director for more than 20 years. He has studied at the Dramatic Institute and at Stockholm Film School and has made several feature films, short films, documentaries, commercials and music videos.

It is through his own experience and dialogue with industry colleagues that he has gained insight into the technical aspects of the film industry. From that insight a strong vision emerged to create smarter tools for better storytelling.

Miko Lazic founded Moonlighting Industries in 2014 to develop Moon Smart Focus®. He has since then had a close cooperation with the incubator company Inkubera AB in Örebro, where the journey with Moon Smart Focus® began and where his new company also has its headquarters today.

Focus Superpowers

Film makers want to tell stories. Free from distractions to the creative process. But humans make mistakes, and sometimes we lose focus.

Moon Smart Focus brings you focus superpowers… so you can tell the story.
