Very exciting. All I can say at this point.

Just finished working on it. Was first screened at NYUNEWSDOC2011 in February 2012.

My name is Konstantin Syomin. I’m a videographer with some 11 years of experience in television. Due to arrival of new technologies and ways of communication, mass media is undergoing tremendous changes these days. So I decided to depart from my previous comfortable position at one of the world’s major broadcasting networks, and dive into the stream of independent filmmaking. Currently I’m focused on producing, script-writing, shooting, and editing documentaries about anything that deserves public attention (i.e. isn’t boring or relevant only for the few). The turbulent times we are living in, the deteriorating economic environment, growing political risks and the unseen before availability of video equipment, are already shaping the world of television thus clearing the path for multi-skilled professionals.

I’m up to cover the whole scope of video production:
– filming (using professional HDSLR rig assembled to accommodate the amazing micro4/3 Lumix GH2 camera with its bitrate boosted to over 66mb/s. Tascam DR-100 for audio)
– editing (Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, Avid)
– video graphics (Motion, Adobe After Effects)
– music composing (Logic Pro 9, Reason 5, Soundtrack Pro)
Not to mention traditional reporting which I still occasionally do.

On this site you will find examples of my recent work. I’m open to any ideas or suggestions. If you have an interesting project that might benefit from my participation and creativity, feel free to contact me anytime.

Below are the two trailers for my upcoming documentary.
