I always liked to work with choreographers making videos for them. Their high level of spontaneity was always helping me to push my creative horizons and not be afraid to create new stories, new story lines right in the moment, during the shooting.

We did not plan to add any story to this dancing video. It was created suddenly when we saw a kite seller near the metro station where we were gathering.

The openness of my colleagues, my friends, my co-authors helped me to add a romantic background to this dancing video.

Music is a magical media that can tune our mood, change our emotions. But not always we are on the same wave with people that are around us. We can like each other from the first sight. But during approaching more and more somethimes we find differences in our attitudes that we cannot deal with.

I knew that Anita Berkhane, with whom I made friends during our work on a project "Circumstances" (2008) is a talented actress always ready to experiment. She never studied acting before but was very organic to any situation. We made this short video clip with Anita, actor Roman Sorokin and my assistant Irina Todyryak during one ride in a trolleybus. We did not have any permissions from the transport department. We just were very comfortable for other passengers and acted naturally.

For promoting his dancing studio and his hip-hop lessons my friend, choreographer Alexey Simba asked me to make a video of a dancing lesson. This format was quite new to me and this fact made me to agree. I always try to work in different genres to extend the range of my abilities.

Our aim was not only to show the choreograhphy, but to show the spirit of this dance, to add some jokes that could show the charisma of the teacher and make him more attractive for the future students.

I acted on this video as a cameraman, director and editor.

I was asked by a very talented in Moscow dancer, dj and celebrity Sam Zakharov to make a dancing video with a soundtrack "Dirty Dance". And this video had to include some love story.

The music felt sinister and ominous to me. That's why I created a story with a vampire. We were shooting mostly at night in Moscow without permissions that did not cause any problems. It was the highest moment of freedom and creativity with two talented people - Sam Zakharov and Anita Berkhane. I always knew how supportive, undemanding and bright Anita can be. That was the reason I asked her to play the role of the vampire.

This is one of the videos made in a cycle "This is Just a Decease". My friend, colleague and my mentor - film director Pavel Ruminov was always thinking about the theme of cancer. It was a presonal story of his family. And finally he has found a determination to start working with this very serious topic.

Paul wrote a script for a full-length feature film about a woman suffering from cancer and looking for step parents for her son. During the preparational period we were visiting clinics where we were making interviews with patients having treatment and finally Paul came to the idea of making an inspiring cycle about people that got a course of chemoterapy and returned to their life. That became happy, healthy and full of life again.

The House of Torajanese

If the cover of a book about Toraja would have to be decorated with only one symbol - it would be Torajanese wooden house - tongkonan. Horned roof, black, white and red patterns – are its distinctive features.

The connoisseurs of Eastern culture know that such a form of the roof – is not something special, inherent only to Torajanese houses.

Similar roofs could be found in the houses of another Indonesian tribe - Bataks of Sumatra island, in the sacred complex of Ise in Japan, in the architecture of the south-western China.

This film was my first experience as an executive producer in a big project.

My friend and my mentor director Pavel Ruminov made this story about a woman that has cancer and in fear of dying she is looking for step parents for her son. The film was made in Moscow. Our main challenge was to create a maximum friendly atmosphere for our actors - to help them to open towards improvising. Paul wanted the actors to add into their characters something personal.

We did not allow the group to chat about the topics not connected to work. All our thoughts were turning around the film and it's story.

We were handling the topic of cancer very seriously. We had our consultant on the set. A former patient that had cancer and recovered. Finally she played a doctor coming to the heroine for medical chack at home.
