Special Thanks + "5 Words" Premiere

Posted on at

Wow. What a project. After at-least 80 hours of editing, traveling to a different country, and 4.5 months, we're finally done! I definitely couldn't have worked with a better team. My right-hand man, Director of Photography & Editor Leo Zhuchenko, is a trooper! From last minute production meetings to sacrificing his weekends for editing, he made it happen!

During the post-production I had the chance to visit Vancouver B.C. and meet with two friends who helped me in a big way with this project. Serge-Chubinsky Orlov composed the music, and Andrii Taran color graded the film. These were two very talented individuals that I was very fortunate to work with.

During the filming of 5 Words, we had two amazing make-up artists come and donate their time as well as supplies for this film. They are both wonderful, and you all should visit their website!




You see this poster? My amazing friend Nazar Parkhotyuk made them, along with the DVD covers. I can't not mention him. He has the biggest heart ever, and is extremely talented! Visit his website: http://www.guruofgraphics.com


On September 27th, we had a premiere for 5 Words at a local church (The Church of Truth) in the Vancouver, WA. With an attendance of at-least 250+ people! It was an amazing time! To see people show up to watch something we had worked on so hard and so long, was amazing in itself! We are even more pumped to do more stuff like this because of all the support and encouragement we had gotten.

This premiere wouldn't be as successful without the help of Russia Radio 7. They promoted this event and invited me and Leo on air to talk about the film. We appreciate you guys!
