Q: How did you discover your talent?
I don’t know actually…. I just was interested in editing and wanted to give it a try. And it worked)
Q: Can you tell us more about your upcoming project(s)?
Summer is planned for 5 shorts for Yandex Taxi. Also work on a full-length feature film probably will start in October.
Q: Do you have any advice for young editors?
Patience is the key I think
Q: What do you enjoy most about your job, your career?
Most of all I like that every project is different. You need to be creative and craftsman at the same time.
Q: What are your key responsibilities?
It depends. Some times I’m editing on set to help director see that everything is going as planned and we have enough material. The other day when commercials production is running I’m editing master versions on set to make postproduction period shorter and faster see the final result. As for the film editing — some times I follow the material and trying to see what story it tells. Some times I have to make a certain story whatever material is present.
Q: Which film in terms of its editing has inspired you the most?
I think it was “Drunken Sailor” by Sergey Bodrov. Sergey gave me I think 40 mini DVs with concerts, interviews, walks, studio recordings of Tiger Lilies band without any screenplay and just said to make a good 45 minutes long film) It was challenging and very interesting.
