Egor was born in 1987 in the south of the Soviet Union in the city of Rostov-on-Don.
When he was nine years old, a recent discovery of his parent's old typewriter initially leads him to write a few pages. Three weeks of hard labour later, he ended up creating a 3-page sequel to James Bond’s GOLDFINGER, which he just watched on TV. According to his grandmother's words, it was a huge success as she had a chance to read it.
The very first Egor's film experience occurred in the 90s when he watched Steven Spielberg's JURASSIC PARK. The world of ancient creatures that suddenly came to live instantly grabbed Egor and since that, he dedicated himself to exploring and studying the world of movies.
So in 2009, he graduated from film school and started polishing his craft in a short form. 'Stop talking and make something of yourself!' - as once MAD MEN's Don Draper said. So, Egor decided to make something and spend a few years learning the art of advertising. Since 2010, he directed commercials for such brands as Google, Megafon, Danone, Yandex, Visa, McDonalds, Adidas, BMW, to name a few.
And finally, in 2016, Egor started his career in movies. He worked with Fedor Bondarchuk as second unit director on his major release ATTRACTION. Shooting aliens from outer space for 30 days straight gave Egor an impulse to develop his own creature feature.
His intention resulted in making a proof-of-concept short THE PASSENGER which was premiered at the Fantastic Fest in 2017. Lately, the short has been developed as a feature film SPUTNIK and held its premiere at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival. More than one million people have streamed
downloaded from torrents the title since its release in late April in Russia. Released by IFC Midnight in the midst of pandemic in the US, SPUTNIK became fifth-most rented film on Apple TV.
Currently, Egor is dividing his time between Moscow and LA while developing his new projects. Staying a huge sci-fi geek and lover of universal human stories, he's continually looking for new ways to express himself in the visual storytelling field.
