I was born in 1980 in Ukraine. I’ve been drawing everywhere and every time. My first comics were designed when i was at the age of six. At 19 I entered the Animation Directing Department (Eugene Sivokin course) of the State University of Theater, Film and Television. The success of my first animation works (Next;Zabliks and Others; Wandering between) proved this choice to be correct. My last film WHITE CROW; has been selected in 2011 Clermont-Ferrand international short film fest, Lab competition.
After graduation, I have successfully taken part in various animation projects (computer game"YouAreEmpty" as a director of cut-out scenes, virtual animation studio "Marcusstudio" as art-director and in many others.
The opportunity to create worlds and inspire them with friendship, hatred, joy, misery and love – this is what is interesting about creating films. Some professions become part of one’s life. Animation is one of them."
