Almost forgot that I shot this music video for a Russian R&B artist Airat in 2008 -- the first music video I ever directed, or my first ever video project for that matter.
It was a real guerilla style filmmaking. I had a Soviet-made Super 8mm camera and a small photo camera that also could take videos. We walked around Kazan, Russia, and recorded images spontaneously, to illustrate a crumbling romantic relationship. The rest was shot in an apartment with the singer's wife as an actress.

Just wrapped on a short film "You" directed by Polina Gorbacheva, which I production designed. We got to shoot on a helipad in the middle of downtown LA. Really enjoyed this project! I got a chance to be creative with designing a somewhat surreal set up on a roof.

Last week, my dear friend from Spain married her boyfriend in Vegas! To commemorate their great adventure I decided to give them a little illustration as a gift. This is the result:

My obsession for miniature things was fulfilled on my recent job as a prop master for Wundur's spec commercial.
I had to create a miniature version of a leather Ikea chair. So much fun! Too bad I didn't get to keep it in the end.

Recently, I realized I have a LOT of footage looking out of airplane windows. An idea came to mind of what to do with that and this was the result. The next morning, I regretted starting it at Midnight, but still pretty happy with how it turned out. Hopefully I'll have time to do more of these little videos.

I'm set to Production Design a promo for a Feature Film "A Miracle Mile" in February. It's a modern day mystery-drama about fame and tragedy, and of course Hollywood. Check out film's website: miraclemilemovie.com
Really excited to see what we'll come up with!

I recently came back from the Reykjavik International Film Festival and have been missing Iceland already. I took part in their Talent Lab workshops and had a short film submitted for the competition. It was a great experience to be on this magical island watching movies, hanging out at local pubs, and listening to great live music all day. Plus, it was a great opportunity to meet young fillmakers alike, who gathered from all over the world.
Now I just need to make another movie to submit for the next years festival. Learn more about the film fest here: www.riff.is
