Egor, a Russian-born, was fascinated by moving images and stories of eerie and unexplainable from a young age. Armed with a VideoHi8 camcorder, he embarked on a mission of drenching his friends in faux gore while recreating the latest PS1 "Resident Evil" game release. A blood-soaked rite of passage left Egor hungry for more, and film school became the next logical step.

After graduating in 2009, affected by the 90s new wave of directors such as Anton Corbijn, Mark Romanek, and Spike Jonze, he decided to hone his skills in advertising and the music video industry. Since 2012, he has directed commercials for some of the world's biggest brands, including Google, IKEA, Visa, McDonald's, Adidas, BMW, Kia, and Volkswagen, among others. He has also collaborated with some of the most celebrated names in the music industry.

In 2017, Egor spent numerous days as the 2nd unit director filming aliens for the future box-office hit "Attraction". Overwhelmed by the beauty of the extra-terrestrial monsters, he stepped on a path of crafting his own creature feature; he birthed a proof-of-concept short film that ultimately grew into the full-blown sci-fi horror known as "Sputnik."

The film premiered at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival and has been streamed by over a million viewers since its release. "Sputnik" has been met with critical acclaim, receiving an approval rating of 89% on Rotten Tomatoes and becoming the fifth-most rented film on Apple TV after being released by IFC Midnight in the US. Some industry heavyweights like Paul Schrader, Robert Englund, and Hideo Kojima have chimed in with their praises. The success of the movie also caught the attention of Matt Reeves' "6th & Idaho", who, along with Village Roadshow Pictures and XYZ Films, have acquired the rights for an English-language remake that is currently in development and which Egor is executive producing alongside his partners.

Nowadays, Egor lives a jet-setting life, splitting his time between LA and Europe while managing the extremely time-consuming duty of being a cat dad. He's embarked on a mission of exploring both film and advertising realms, seizing every opportunity that enables him to unleash stories brimming with passion.
