I take influences some of the world best filmmakers and DPs. Most of lighting crew guys usually are more like technicians, but I’m more like an artist. I could give your clients more western style and communication, I understand more how in western use for lighting. And over all my personal taste and style is moody/dark/contrast/shadows. My approach for lightning is like painting. To me important is aesthetics, feeling and mood.
I’m best when I could work independently and self-directed and give my “effort/vision/knowledge/creativity” to project. To me best situation is that DP and director trust me and I have good best boy. My strength is visuality.
I also working on my own feature film projects. The films are based on my stories and I have been guided/directed screenwriters to write these stories. I will be director on these films and I producing films also with Hollywood producing partners.
My voice as a filmmaker is dark and deep. I want to tell meaningful stories that are also very entertaining and commercial.
