About

I am a filmmaker working in short and feature film productions, as well as music videos.

I was born in Murmansk, Russia and grew up in Saint-Petersburg, where I have accomplished a Specialist degree in Film Studies, which I studied in Saint-Petersburg State University of Film and Television. While studying, I was helping my fellow students on the sets of their films until I wrote and directed my first short film.

I moved to London and finished a Film Pathway Foundation Course in Art and Design, after which I got into Film Practice course in University of the Arts London. Over the years I have worked in different genres and kinds of filmmaking: documentaries, dramas, comedies, horror, sci-fi. I have learned and practiced  different roles on the set: director, writer, producer, editor, 1st AD, script supervisor, production designer. It helped me to understand how filmmaking works from different perspectives.

Outside the University I have work experience in various productions: features, promotional and music videos. In the meantime I have never stopped generating ideas and writing scripts as well as working on my own projects.
