As part of our documentary “Women in creative industries” we filmed the collection catwalk of Julia Seregina that took place at the Flacon Fashion Festival in Moscow in the Flacon design factory on the 23rd of May. We got loads of great behind the scenes footage as well as the main event and could not resist making a short film.
Julia combines contemporary design and the comfort of natural knitwear to create new forms and silhouettes that flatter the femininity and beauty in women. She tirelessly searches for new sources of inspiration and takes themes from the natural environment to create collections that inspire. Find out more about her work here
We are in the process of developing this short film about 3 women in different creative industries. It shows how they have to balance their family life and their professional life. All 3 took part in the British Councils work shop for creative entrepreneurs held in November 2013. All 3 also got into the 5 chosen to have a further 3 months tutoring sessions.
We will show how this has helped them develop and aim to inspire others to take the huge risk of turning their passion into a business.
This film follows Nika Chernyaeva, a modern artist who gave up her well paid job in PR to concentrate only on developing her very unique style of painting.

Then our very own Alyona Pimanova – A TV and documentary film producer who is focused on showing foreign production teams the beauty of Russia, its people and culture.
This project is at the pitching stage and we very soon hope to have more news about the funding of this film and start production.
In December 2013 we filmed a corporate video for Bulgarian Real Estate company Mir Estates. Our brief was to create a film to be used as a marketing tool, to meet the team and to show some of the beautiful properties for sale in Bulgaria. We first met Stanimira Kulova, head of Mir Estates while filming I want a house abroad for TLC Russia in 2011.
Stanimira Kulova has since then become a good friend of ours and so it was with great pleasure to make this film for them. We were especially pleased with the helicopter/multicopter shots that added a special element to this film. The whole shoot was great fun and they made our crew feel very welcome while filming in their office in Moscow.
In November 2013 we filmed and edited a film for the Acoustic Valium Project, an event put on specially to raise money for Katrina Brown. Kat was exposed to Depleted Uranium whilst serving in the UK armed forces as an arm medic in Iraq in 2003. She is now fighting for her life having developed systemic sclerosis.
This was a great pleasure to make this film and to meet Kat, we just hope that it helped in some little way. It was also a great night of music with some very talented musical acts.
