Summary

In the film industry I started my career as a multimedia director, made title sequences, music videos, commercials. For several years I worked with the studios, which produced movie, animation, multimedia projects. I worked with all types of animation, video, composing, CG.

In my portfolio I have animation works, image processing works (making a simple video movie-style and beautiful), title sequence works, motion design works, animated logos, graphic design works (poster design, brochure design, web design).

In 2014 I made my production debut through the author's short film "Second Love". The film was a great success at international film festivals (over 20 festivals around the world). Our movie was awarded in Europe (Best Short film For Kids at The Kids Festival in Spain, Best Amateur Film at 10th Cinema International Festival “KINOKIMERIY” in Ukraine) and America. At International Peace & Film Festival in Orlando (USA) we received two awards – Judges Choice Award and Essence Award. The full list of screenings and awards  see below.

In 2015 and 2016 I produced two more short films – "The sky over Berlin of my childhood" and "Where Oedipus Lives...", which also were selected to leading international film festivals in Europe and America. "The sky over Berlin of my childhood" won Best short film at 17th Moondance International Film Festival (USA), Best Experimental Film at 12th Harlem International Film Festival (USA), Best Experimental Film at Los Angeles World International Film Festival (USA) and Best International short film at New York 2nd Annual Short Film Series (USA).

"Second Love"

Kazakhstan, 2014.  Producer –  Daria Korneeva;  director –  Bakhtiyar Islamov.

The  film is about first love. In this movie, we applied a unique digital image processing technology, imitating oil paintings. The film's style can be characterized as a type of  romantic realism. People are filmed in a very realistic fashion, but the landscapes processed in such picturesque and vivid manner that we attempt to visually show a character's memory and impressions.

Awards (2015 year)

Some official selections (2015 year)

"The sky over Berlin of my childhood"

Kazakhstan, 2015. Producer –  Daria Korneeva;  director –  Bakhtiyar Islamov.

This is a film about lost children in a strange place. Three boys jump from zone to zone using a teleportation box. They don’t look for happiness, love or meaning, they simply run impulsively through spaces. The movie is a metaphor of the lost generation born in the post Soviet area between 1980-1990. The images of the film are memories of the young people who passed through the collapse of the empire.
