Egor was born in the 80s in the South of the Soviet Union. When he was nine years old, an accidental discovery of his parent's old typewriter eventually led him to write a few pages. It took blood, sweat, and tears to conceive a 3-page sequel for ‘Goldfinger’.
Later on, he switched the typewriter to a Video Hi8 camcorder, and a heap of homemade movies saw the light of day. His obsessive fascination encouraged him to enter a film school, that he graduated in 2009.
Egor spent numerous years polishing his craft in the advertising industry. Since 2012, he directed commercials for such brands as Google, IKEA, Visa, McDonalds, Adidas, BMW, Kia, Volkswagen, to name a few. Also, Egor has worked with some of music's most celebrated names, including Kasta, Mumiy Troll, Noize MC, Sunsay.
In 2017 Egor joined Fedor Bondarchuk's future box-office hit 'Attraction' as a 2nd unit director. Filming 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 later evolved into a feature film 'Sputnik' and premiered at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival. More than one million people have streamed the movie since its online release in late April in Russia. Released by IFC Midnight in the US, 'Sputnik' became the fifth-most rented film on Apple TV and received an approval rating of 89% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Later this year, 'The Matrix' and 'Joker' co-producer Village Roadshow Pictures teamed with Matt Reeves' 6th & Idaho (The Batman) and XYZ Films (Mandy) to acquire rights for the English-language remake of 'Sputnik'. Egor is executive producing along with his partners from Vodorod, Art Pictures and Hype Film.
