Ignjatovic spent 14 years at MTV, where he was responsible for developing innovative projects with music talent, as well as long-form, music-based programming for the network. He co-created, produced and developed such memorable programming as "Meet the Barkers," "Diary," "mtvICON," "Dancelife" with Jennifer Lopez, and "Life & Rhymes of...," which featured profiles of artists including Nas, 50 Cent, Kanye West, Mary J. Blige, LL Cool J, Ludacris and Snoop Dogg. In addition, he co-created and executive produced "MTV Ultimate Mash-Ups - Jay-Z/Linkin Park," which won a Grammy award in 2004.

Just one month earlier, Hamilton created the visually arresting spectacle that was this year's Super Bowl halftime show featuring The Who. The laser-filled, firework and video spectacular redefined the show and Super Bowl XLIV became the most-watched program in U.S. television history, with over 106 million viewers. Other Hamilton credits include six years on the "The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show" and the "2009 Scream Awards," in addition to his name appearing on over 26 million music DVD covers the world over, including live concert films with Madonna, U2, Rolling Stones, Christina Aguilera and Amy Winehouse.
