VR/360/Commercial projects
Advertising showreel:
Showreel of commercial advertising directed in 2010-2018 in Russia.

Reading is an ultimate way to use imagination.
Readers create their own vision of the book, which makes them co-authors in some way.
Specially for the annual all Russian event "Biblionight" and 200 year anniversary of Russian classic Ivan Turgenev, we`ve invited famous actors – Yury Kolokolnikov ("Game of Thrones") and Aglaya Tarasova ("Ice", "Tanks") to narrate the pieces from Turgenev`s prose and share their vision. With the help of VR artist Denis Semionov we`ve created in virtual reality their versions of Turgenev`s world and invite others to create new ones.
