Yury has always loved film. Ever since he was young he was inspired by movies that were emotional and atmospheric. This aesthetic translates into all his work, whether it be commercials, short films or music videos. At the age of 24, Yury enrolled into London Film Academy to get a director’s diploma and later attended Anglia Ruskin University where he completed MA in Film and TV Production. His dream is to become a feature film director and to make films that make an emotional impact.
The idea of a film about a composer had its inception quite a while back. About 5 years ago, before I got to complete a course in Directing at London Film Academy. Music is a big passion of mine and I put a lot of thought into the whole process of writing a melody. All of this and an ongoing interest in pre-revolution Russia were the roots to this short film. After relocating to London, my admiration for Russian literature grew and I knew that I had to channel this inspiration into a film.
