Dreams come True!

Dreams come true! I am extremely happy that finally I have got into AFI (American Film Institute, Conservatory)!!! One of the best cinematography schools in the world, located in the heart of Los Angeles, Hollywood. It was a long way to get there.AFI_Conservatory_logoI started dreaming about AFI back in 2013 travelling by train in Siberia, when another DOP (Alex) have mentioned it. In 2014 I applied for the first time. However, my documents were never reviewed, because of not sufficient English level and I was always rejected. I have tried different private English teachers, passed once TOEFL exam and 4 times IELTS exam till I got what I need. in 2015 I was passing IELTS two times and got 6.5 point twice, instead of 7.0 which I needed to get through. Then I got tired of trying and did a break which continued for two years and a half keeping me busy with other things. Thanks God 2017 was a year of waking up (especially a project in Tian Shan mountains), and in December I hired a private teacher, buried myself completely into the books and passed IELTS for the 7.0, which allowed me to be reviewed. After submitting the documents I flied to LA for the interview and here I am!

Soon I will be figuring out a financial plan and believe me I will need to use your help! I am here till August so please use me for some work!

Thanks to everybody who supported me all these years and kept believing in my big dreams!

Best Cinematographer of the year!

For the 8th time the Lithuanian Association of Cinematographers held its annual award ceremony to honor the work of cinematographers as well as other members of the Lithuanian film industry and to present awards for the best cinematographers’ works of the year. The ceremony took place in the beautiful church of Saint Catherine in the old town of Vilnius.

This year the winners were chosen by an international jury: film director, recipient of the Lithuanian National Prize for Culture and Arts, and president of the Lithuanian Filmmakers union Gytis Lukšas, film director and cinematographer Kornelijus Matuzevičius who has made over 70 films and has received a LAC lifetime achievement award, film critic Neringa Kažukauskaitė, cinematographer Vilius Mačiulskis and Prague’s FAMU film school alumnus Klaus Fuxjäger who has been working in Hollywood productions as well as independent films and commercials for over two decades.

The “Oak” for the best work of a cinematographer in Lithuanian film went to Saulius Lukoševičius for the documentary Paradise Gowns directed by Albina Griniūtė. The award was presented by the former president of the association Rimvydas Leipus who said the jury decided to give the award because of the film’s “subtle visuals and the cinematographer’s ability to combine artistic as well as technical solutions”.
