Three things that I do better than anything else

Directing actors and shooting process is my essential skill and profession. Since 2010 I improve myself to become the​ best director I can be.


Even the most brilliant concept can be spoiled by weak production. Experience in all stages of creating advertising won't let me do common mistakes.



I was born with a nice story to tell and all my life I'm trying to find the best way to tell this to the world.



Editing gives me huge benefit in the vision of the ​final result during the pre-production and production stages.



I know all the ​basics of post-production workflow and can create advanced effects by myself.



My hobby is to shoot beautiful pictures. I like to see beauty in any shadow or reflection that surrounds us.



Knowing when, how and with whom properly communicate gives me a flexibility to speak with clients, pop-stars, businessmen, workers, ​and children.
