I was born in Kyiv, Ukraine in an absolutely not cinematic family but I decided to change that. I graduated as a cinematographer in 2014 from Karpenko-Kary University of Theater, Cinema, and TV. Also, I have “normal” education as a journalist (Taras Shevchenko National University), though this job didn’t suit me. Starting my path in the television industry as a news cameraman, and then moving onto co-creating short 26-minute documentaries. Though, in 2016, I said “goodbye” to the television industry. I first began my filmmaking career as a camera assistant in the biggest rental house in Ukraine. Working with the best and the worst filmmakers, learning from them what to do in case you struggle for the ‘Golden Raspberry’ and what to do if you need a nice product. However, I think I still mix up those notes. I am excited to work with patient and experienced filmmaking professors in OU, who will help me to straighten this tangle while I find a path to my Cinematography.
