Ilya was studying medicine in Krasnoyarsk, when he started to make his first films. He realized soon that it wasn't enough. After leaving the university, he entirely focused on this passion, trying his hand at directing, cinematography, color grading and editing. His first music video for Monopoly immediately established Ilya as a truly talented young director with the strong skills in visual storytelling.
Now he successfully works as a Director and DOP.
Ilya: «Directing for me is the most comfortable way of communicating with the world. I like the stories which are closer to our reality, they allow us to share something truly sincere with the viewer».
