WHO AM I?

ART IS IN MY BLOOD. FOR SEVERAL GENERATIONS, NEARLY EVERY MEMBER OF MY FAMILY HAS BEEN AN ARTIST. MY GRANDFATHER PASSED THIS TRADITION ONTO ME AT 2 YEARS OLD WHEN SHE PLACED THE FIRST PAINT BRUSH IN MY HAND.

 

ALL MY LIFE I HAVE CREATED STORIES, FAIRY TALES, CHARACTERS AND IMAGES IN MY HEAD AND TRIED TO CONVEY THIS TO OTHER PEOPLE THROUGH ART.

 

I HAVE TWO GRADUATE DEGREES (AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN) IN GRAPHIC DESIGN, DIGITAL MEDIA DESIGN AND ART HISTORY. 

 

MY LAST ROLE WAS AS AN ART DIRECTOR AT A TOP 10 RANKED MUSEUM IN MANHATTAN.  I ALSO HELD ROLES AS AN ART DIRECTOR FOR SEVERAL COMPANIES AND HAVE WORKED ACROSS NUMEROUS GRAPHIC DESIGN AREAS.

 

DEEP EXPERTISE IN ADOBE SUITE, CONCEPTS, VIDEO EDITING, ANIMATION, TITLES/LOGOS, HAND & TABLET DRAWING AND MUCH MORE.

VIDEO PROJECTS

BRIBE

 

MY OWN SHORT FILM IN THE ATMOSPHERE OF THE RUSSIAN EMPIRE IN 1881. IN MY OPINION THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST UNUSUAL COMBINATIONS FOR A HORROR MOVIE.

 

I DID DIRECTING, SCREENWRITING, EDITING AND PLAYED MAIN CHARACTER. EVERY DETAIL AND MOVEMENT MAKES SENSE, YOU JUST NEED TO LOOK ATTENTIVELY.

 

THE FILM IS NOT DEVOID OF IRONY AND A SOCIAL SUBTEXT IS EMBEDDED IN IT. THE MAIN TASK WAS TO SHOW ONE OF THE MAIN PROBLEMS OF MODERN RUSSIA - NAMELY, CORRUPTION.

​THE FILM WON THE MOST CREATIVE SHORT FILM CATEGORY AT INDYFEST 2022.

DANCING WITH THE STARS/TV PROJECT

 

THE FAMOUS SHOW I TOOK PART IN WHEN IT WAS FILMED IN EUROPE. I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE SCREENS IN THE HALL DURING THE PERFORMANCE. 

 

I CREATED MOTION GRAPHICS TO SUPPORT THE DANCE OF THE CONTESTANTS. PROJECTIONS, LIGHTING, COLORS - ALL THIS I DREW AND ANIMATED IN CONSULTATION WITH THE DIRECTOR OF THE SHOW. 

 

EVERYTHING YOU SEE HERE IS MADE BY ME FROM SCRATCH.

 

QUASI-DOCUMENTARY FILM ABOUT H.P.LOVECRAFT

 

MY OWN FILM, IN WHICH I TALK ABOUT THE LIFE OF THE WRITER, HIS WORK AND INFLUENCE ON MODERN CULTURE. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, THAT I SHOW THROUGH AN ARTISTIC PRISM THE REAL PLACES OF EVENTS DESCRIBED IN THE AUTHOR'S BOOKS.

 

DIRECTING, FILMING, SCRIPT, EDITING - I PERSONALLY DID EVERYTHING, THIS IS ENTIRELY MY PROJECT, WHICH IS EXPECTED BY SEVERAL FESTIVALS.

DON'T LISTEN, DON'T LOOK, DON'T SPEAK, PLEASE STAND BY

 

IRONIC COMMERCIALS. EACH OF THEM REVEALS A SOCIAL PROBLEM. LIKE THE THREE MONKEYS WHO IGNORE EVIL. IF YOU DO NOT LISTEN, SPEAK OR WATCH, THIS WILL NOT SAVE YOU FROM EVIL, BUT WILL MAKE YOU AN ACCOMPLICE. THIS IS BAD ADVICE THAT TEACHES GOOD.

 

EVERYTHING IS SERVED THROUGH ADS IN THE STYLE OF THE 90S. ALL VIDEOS ARE DIRECTED BY ME, AMAZING MAKE-UP AND BLACK HUMOR. I THINK YOU WILL APPRECIATE IT.

INSANITY AND COOKING

MY COOKING SHOW

 

ON MY CHANNEL I CREATE SHORT VIDEO RECIPES. EACH RECIPE IS DEDICATED TO A MOVIE, CHARACTER, OR SPECIAL STYLE OF CINEMATOGRAPHY. IN THE VIDEO EDITING, I USE THE STYLE AND TRICKS OF THE TIME OF THE FILM, OR I USE THE FEATURES OF THE DIRECTOR. ALL THIS IS ACCOMPANIED BY GOOD MUSIC, EFFECTS AND, OF COURSE, THE DISHES ARE DELICIOUS.​

DARK KNIGHT:RETURNS

 

A FAN-MADE SHORT FILM ABOUT OUR FAVORITE BATMAN COMIC. WE ARE BIG FANS OF THESE GRAPHIC NOVELS, WE OFTEN DID COSPLAYS, DANCE SHOWS, PHOTO SHOOTS AND IT'S TIME FOR A FULL VIDEO. I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT. WE DID MAKE-UP, STAGING, EDITING BY OURSELVES. IT WAS ESPECIALLY DIFFICULT TO SHOOT IN A STUDIO FILLED WITH WATER. PERSONALLY, I DID DIRECTING, STORYBOARDING, EDITING AND PLAYING BATMAN.

VARIOUS EXAMPLES OF MOTION GRAPHICS AND ANIMATED TITLES

 

I OFTEN CREATE VARIED AND CONTRASTING TITLES. I DRAWING THE DETAILS ON MY TABLET BY MY HANDS, WHICH MAKES THEM UNIQUE. AND ALSO I RARELY USE READY-MADE EFFECTS, I CREATE AND CONTROL THEM MYSELF.

WAITING FOR HER

 

A SHORT FILM, THE THEME OF WHICH I THINK WILL BE FAMILIAR TO MANY. THIS IS MY FIRST CREATIVE WORK IN SUCH AN UNUSUAL STYLE FOR ME - ROMANTIC AND COLORFUL, BUT I THINK THAT YOU NEED TO CHALLENGE YOURSELF MORE OFTEN. HOPE YOU LIKE IT AND IT WILL MAKE YOU SMILE.

YOG-SOTHOTH

 

A SMALL CLIP ON THE SUBJECT OF

IMMERSION IN THE WORLD OF BOOKS. FICTIONAL STORIES ARE SO EXCITING THAT THE WORLD AROUND BEGINS TO FADE NEXT TO THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE AUTHOR'S FANTASY. IF YOU WILL SAY THE NAMES OF ANCIENT GODS FOR A LONG TIME, THEY CAN HEAR YOU.

 

OPERATOR AUSTIN LYSAKER

KING IN YELLOW

 

I MADE A QUASI-DOCUMENTARY FILM ABOUT LOVECRAFT AND THIS IS A SMALL TEASER OF MY IDEAS FOR THE FUTURE. SUCH A TEST TO CONTINUE. THIS IS AN AMAZING LOCATION, AN ABANDONED CHILDREN'S SOVIET CAMP NEAR MOSCOW. IT IS MADE IN THE STYLE OF THE "SEA WORLD" AND IT HAS A LOT OF SCULPTURES OF OCTOPUSES, JELLYFISH AND SHELLS. 40 YEARS AGO IT LOOKED WONDERFUL, BUT NOW THE CAMP IS VERY CREEPY AND SINISTER. IT SEEMS TO ME IN SUCH A PLACE THAT THE KING IN THE YELLOW MAY BE HIDING. MY FRIENDS HELPED ME A LOT IN THE FILMING, I HOPE IN THE FUTURE WE CAN TOGETHER MAKE A FULL-LENGTH MOVIE.

JOKER

 

SHORT COSPLAY FAN FILM. CLIP WAS FILMED AT THE SAME LOCATION, STAIRCASE AT THE CHARACTER'S HOUSE.

PHOTO PROJECTS

COLORLESS DREAM

 

THE MAIN OBJECTIVE WAS TO CREATE A RUSSIAN HORROR WITH DOMESTIC ELEMENTS: FRETWORK, DETAILS OF DECOR AND COSTUMES OF THE XVIII CENTURY.

THESE ARE STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE PURSUING THEIR PAST. ON THE ACTS AND DECISIONS FOR WHICH THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE. ABOUT HOW IT BREAKS OUT WHAT THEY WERE HIDING INSIDE.

 

LIVE PHOTOS OF CHARACTERS. STEPWISE METAMORPHOSIS. HERE YOU CAN LOOK MORE CLOSELY AT ALL THE DETAILS OF NECROMORPHS.

 

LIVE PHOTOS. HERE YOU CAN SEE A SHORT FILM ABOUT BATMAN AND CAT WOMAN.

DAWN

AFTER A LONG NIGHT

 

COSPLAY-PHOTO SESSION, THE TASK WAS TO SHOW A SHORT STORY IN A MINUTE CLIP WITHOUT DIALOGUES. A SMALL ROMANTIC CONFRONTATION, WHICH LEAVES THE AUDIENCE WITH THE THOUGHT "AND WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT."


THE MAIN FEATURE IS THE COLOR GAMUT THAT IS UNUSUAL FOR THESE CHARACTERS. THE COLOR OF "DAWN" AND BRIGHT SHADOWS WERE CREATED BY COLOR CORRECTION. ALL THE COSTUMES ARE HAND-ASSEMBLED AND ARE UNIQUE.
