Director and Director of Photography. CWK was born and raised in the village of Falenki on the border with Udmurtia. He could have had become a doctor but took a hard turn to pursue cinematography instead. Since 2015, he had been working as a DOP, and within four years took on directing. His first project - a spec for Balmain - immediately received a Vimeo Staff Pick.
He enjoys the challenge of working within parameters of short formats: music videos, fashion films, and advertising. He loves to envision big ideas, magical realism, and visual darkness. He treats each project as a cinematic statement in its own right and is always looking for ways to tell familiar stories from a new angle.
