Date of Birth, Nationality:
_05.09.1988, Russian (Moscow/ London)

Present Activity:
Freelance Filmmaker


Alexander could be a really good biologist after finishing Trinity College in Dublin where he moved from Moscow to become very-very wise, but fortunately he has dramatically broke his leg, and moved to London. Alexander loved making little films about his Russian friends do super-stupid and crazy things which got him accepted to London College of Communication where he completed his Bachelor Degree in Film and Video. But it wasn’t enough, Alexander wanted people to call him Master, therefore he went to Central Saint Martins Drama Center where he became a Master of Arts in Directing for Screen. Alexander learned hell a lot about acting there, that gave him a really good technique in working with actors and also the ability to talk about Marlon Brando for hours. Alexander shoots Commercials, TV-Series, Documentaries, Music Videos and everything else that can be shot. The depth of his creativity may be compared only to his level of involvement in the production process.
