I got my Masters Degree In TV/Film Directing, graduating from Kiev National University Of Culture And Arts.
During that time, I produced a few independent films and a commercial starring my little sister Diana.
At that time I also worked for Shutikov Video as an editor/SFX.
After moving to Florida in 2007, there was an opportunity that could not be missed to go Connecticut School Of Broadcasting and graduate in TV/Radio Broadcasting. That was a very exciting time as I got to work on so many exciting projects! One of them was to shoot a guitar commercial with my class mates:
Everybody got an internship and mine was at the CBS Radio. We did promotions, filmed musicians during events and on the air, I even got to be an on air talent for the afternoon and morning shows. Here are a few clips I shot for 103.1 The Buzz.
ALL THIS TIME I WORKED AS A CAMERA OPERATOR FOR SHEPHERD VIDEO FILMING MUSIC FESTIVALS, TALENT SHOWS, VARIOUS EVENTS AND PRODUCED SEVERAL DOCUMENTARIES:
MORE WORK WAS COMING MY WAY SO I UPGRADED MY GEAR AND STARTED ALICE APRIL PRODUCTIONS.
AFTER MOVING TO TULSA, OKLAHOMA I GOT A GIG AS A HANDHELD CAMERA OPERATOR AT THE JOINT, HARD ROCK. OVER THE YEARS I GOT TO OPERATE ROBOTIC CAMERA’S AS WELL AND JUST RECENTLY GOT PROMOTED TO BE A VIDEO DIRECTOR.
