I did the sound design for animation works, 360 videos, VR and AR projects. And of course, I’ve done a lot of trailers, short films, commercials for such brands as Subaru, Mazda, Seagate, Rostelecom, Mastercard, Nornickel, H&S, CGF, K&K Group, TvoyDom, Baltika 7, 2×2 etc.

Services

My main fields of work are Dialogue Editing, Sound Design, Re-Recording.
Also I work with Spatial Audio formats for 360 degrees video and VR.
Able to work within tight budgets and deadlines.
I understand the whole video and film production workflow from screenwriting to color grading and DCP creation.

With advanced Moscow-based specialists and studios, it’s possible to create great-quality sound for film. Even with dialogues recorded on location and surround or spatial mix. For example, the «Night winter people» short film — is 5.1 project, without any ADR recordings, re-recorded in Cinelab Soundmix studio (It is automatic stereo downmix sound on youtube).

There are some examples of my ambisonic for 360 degrees video works (use headphones and HMD for the best experience):

GEAR

I built an isolated and calibrated control room with TC Electronic Studio Konnekt48, THX-sertified monitors Mackie HR624 and additional Genelec 8010A monitors for surround editing. Also I have a couple of MIDI controllers and some professional headphones (Sennheiser HD600, Sony MDR7506, etc.).
