Hi. My name is Olia.
I am currently enrolled in the USC School of Cinematic Arts pursing my master’s degree in Film and TV production. I have also recently completed a certificate program at UCLA in Film and Television directing. In addition to my film education I hold a bachelor's degree in linguistics.
I developed many production skills while completing the UCLA directing certificate. During that program I worked as a director, cinematographer and editor on more then twenty projects. As a result of my production experience I have become proficient in Final Cut, After Effects, Photoshop and Motion, Movie Magic, and Pro Tools. Additionally, I have learnt script coverage, camera operating, storyboarding, and production planning.
I have worked in Production for almost three years as a freelance videographer. I got chance to make music videos, commercials, family videos and short films with a limited crew that I put together on my own.
I have my own camera (Cannon 7D with lenses) and sound equipment (Tascam Sound recorder, boom set). I have all the necessary editing programs on my computer for teaching - Final Cut 10, 7; Protools, Avid.
I currently teach Film at a private school in Hollywood and I am very proud of my students' results. In two weeks they are able to shoot a short film and edit it on their own. We are planning on submitting some of the best works to festivals soon.
