Egor, a native of the South of the Soviet Union and born in the 80s, discovered his passion for storytelling at a young age when he stumbled upon his parent's old typewriter. He spent countless hours pouring his heart and soul into a 3-page sequel for 'Goldfinger,' fueled by his determination and hard work.
Egor's creative drive eventually led him to the world of filmmaking, where he honed his skills at a film school and in the advertising industry. Since 2012, he has directed commercials for some of the biggest brands in the world, including Google, IKEA, Visa, McDonalds, 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 joined Fedor Bondarchuk's team as a 2nd unit director for the blockbuster hit 'Attraction.' His experience filming aliens in outer space gave him the inspiration to develop his own creature feature.
With the goal of bringing his vision to life, Egor created a proof-of-concept short film called 'The Passenger,' which later evolved into the full-length feature '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.
The success of 'Sputnik' has caught the attention of Village Roadshow Pictures, co-producers of 'The Matrix' and 'Joker,' who teamed up with Matt Reeves' 6th & Idaho and XYZ Films to acquire the rights for an English-language remake. Egor is executive producing the project, alongside his partners from Vodorod, Art Pictures, and Hype Film.
