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!

A documentary in Tian Shan mountains

After receiving the offer to film the documentary in Tian Shan mountains in Kyrgyzstan I was in doubt. I only had skiing experience, but never tried climbing. The summit of 4350m seemed a bit scary. The more I thought about it, the more I felt the need to accept this challenge. The preparation for the shoot was intense and I had to learn using mountaineering equipment and prepare my body. I was climbing trees, jogging and running up the stairs with heavy backpack. Preparation included learning about solar panels, weighing film equipment, thinking how to transfer material, trying contact lenses and etc. It was not easy, but worth every effort. It was a great adventure and a source of inspiration. Here are some pics from behind the scenes. A huge thanks for the team.
