This was a volunteer passion project. I'm grateful that I could help this great organization in some small way. ORC was established late last year by a couple of mothers, who just couldn't stay on the sidelines watching the refugee crisis unfold in Europe. They sprinted into action, raising thousands of dollars in only few months and then hand delivered backpacks, full of necessities, to refugee children arriving to Greece every day. More trips are being scheduled as they recieve more donations.

Learn about the organization at www.OperationRefugeeChild.org and DONATE.

Here's my submission for MOBY's music video competition on Genero.tv
Made for fun using all the footage I shot out of the plane windows over the years and short bits of animation.
The judging has started. Wish me luck!

Almost forgot that I shot this music video for a Russian R&B artist Airat in 2008 -- the first music video I ever directed, or my first ever video project for that matter.
It was a real guerilla style filmmaking. I had a Soviet-made Super 8mm camera and a small photo camera that also could take videos. We walked around Kazan, Russia, and recorded images spontaneously, to illustrate a crumbling romantic relationship.

Stumbled upon a picture of a birthday card I made couple of years ago for my screenwriter friend. Love making things like this! Check out more of my illustration/art work on the "Other" page. uploaded image

In the past two months, I got a chance to work at Titmouse animation as one of the lead compositors for "Metalocalypse: Doomstar Requiem" -- a one-hour animated opera special. Catch it on Adult Swim.

Prop Passports and Space Shuttle passes I designed and created for a sci-fi short film "Skywings" (dir. by Fred Park) last fall. 
That graphic design degree always comes in handy.

What to do with all the pebbles I collected along our pacific coast road trip? Draw on them!
This one really looked like a little whale, I couldn't resist.

Just wrapped on a short film "You" directed by Polina Gorbacheva, which I production designed. We got to shoot on a helipad in the middle of downtown LA. Really enjoyed this project! I got a chance to be creative with designing a somewhat surreal set up on a roof, complete with grass mats and sculptural objects.

Last week, my dear friend from Spain married her boyfriend in Vegas! To commemorate their great adventure I decided to give them a little illustration as a gift. This is the result:

My obsession for miniature things was fulfilled on my recent job as a prop master for Wundur's spec commercial. 
I had to create a miniature version of a leather Ikea chair. So much fun! Too bad I didn't get to keep it in the end.

I recently went to a drawing/fundrasing party for a web-series Agent88 at Meltdown Comics. Had plenty of fun drawing on paper walls:

Recently, I realized I have a LOT of footage looking out of airplane windows. An idea came to mind of what to do with that and this was the result. The next morning, I regretted starting it at Midnight, but still pretty happy with how it turned out. Hopefully I'll have time to do more of these little videos.

I'm set to Production Design a promo for a Feature Film "A Miracle Mile" in February. It's a modern day mystery-drama about fame and tragedy, and of course Hollywood. Check out film's website: miraclemilemovie.com 

Really excited to see what we'll come up with!
